The Pavlin family is Manhattan’s jewelry royalty. Clever marketing had established Pavlin & Co as the place to go for engagement rings. But times are changing and business is no longer booming. As the centennial celebration approaches for Pavlin & Co, the glitz of their jewels cannot hide the fact that the family is in disarray. Elodie Pavlin is now the CEO. The granddaughter of the founder never married and is fully devoted to the company. Sister Celeste lives in Provincetown, Mass. She wanted nothing to do with the company, preferring a simpler life. The third sister, Paulina, and her husband Liam, died tragically in an accident leaving their young daughter Gemma to be raised by Liam’s family. Estranged from the Pavlins, Emma is a young jewelry designer on the rise. She is ready to establish contact with her mother’s family to claim her inheritance, her mother’s engagement ring, the famous Electric Rose. The celebrated diamond ring has long been rumored to be cursed and to blame for all the unhappiness in the family.
Author Jamie Brenner has created a family drama you can fully escape into. Gilt is a perfect summer book to relax and enjoy. The majority of the book is set in Provincetown, which Brenner has filled with many wonderful characters and the descriptions of the area fully transports you to the hub of Cape Cod, where life is much calmer than the hustle and bustle of New York City. I recommend this tale of family, love, second chances, and diamonds.
