Giles & Brother is the collaboration of brother-sister duo Philip and Courtney “Giles” Crangi. A jewelry and accessories design house with a strong point of view and a foundation in American craftsmanship, Giles & Brother offers a smart, pared-down perspective on fashion jewelry. They believe that a piece becomes more beautiful when it reveals the hand that made it, and their signature brass and silver oxide finishes maintain a rough-hewn quality that imbues our cuffs, wraps, rings and necklaces with their own heritage. Their signature collections not only embody the American pioneering spirit through their iconography, but are pioneers in the industry as well—changing the conversation about fashion jewelry since 2001.
Philip Crangi is a New York-based jewelry designer who hails from South Florida. Philip designs his jewelry from a personal and thoughtful place, weaving together images from his own history with those from their collective past, and creating pieces that become enduring additions to the wearer’s personal narrative. Trained at the Rhode Island School of Design, Philip launched his eponymous fine jewelry line as well as Giles & Brother with his sister Courtney in 2001. Since then, he has designed pieces for Phillip Lim, Coach, and Jason Wu, among others, and garnered numerous awards, including the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Award for Best Designer in 2007, and the CFDA Swarovski Award for Accessory Design in 2008. His designs have been regularly featured in Vogue, W, InStyle, Bazaar and Elle. He is a board director for the CFDA.
