Green Box #1 :: 11/02/2018

The first green box of 2018 is out! Our featured brand of the week is Gabriel & Co. Even though Gabriel & Co. has plenty of silver fashion and engagement rings, the gold and diamond fine jewelry is an easy upgrade from a typical fashion silver purchase. Believe it or not, they have 14k gold and diamond pieces in Windsor that start at $200. The piece of the week that the box finder will receive is a Gabriel & Co. 14k yellow gold and diamond Y Knots Necklace retailing for $1530. You can see some of our Gabriel collection online. Also the box will only be hidden in the CSRA.

If you come into Windsor and try on a piece of Gabriel & Co. you’ll get to see a clue a day in advance.
