The history of Wendy Gell brand began about 50 years ago in New York. According to official data, Wendy Gell Jewelry Inc., founded in 1975, ceased to exist in 1993. Its founder was American artist and jewelry designer Wendy Gell. Initially, the designer created eye-catching wrist bracelets with a multi-layered three-dimensional design. Since 1985, she has added Disney characters to her work by purchasing a license from the Disney Company.

In addition, she owned the eponymous trademark for the production of scarves (since 1988).
Noteworthy, after the closure of her company, the legendary Napier company invited her as a consultant on jewelry with Disney characters. Besides, after a long absence, Gell came back with new designs and ideas on her website wendygell.com.
Many stars, such as Elizabeth Taylor, Cher, Diana, Michael Jackson, Elton John, Hillary Clinton and Mick Jagger have had Wendy Gell jewelry in their collections.
Jewelry pieces created by Gell are wearable art, and highly collectible now.
