The Belle Collection was designed to evoke the spirit of iconic, timeless, pearl jewelry, and to present the gift of the pearl to those that love them the most. Belle is built on years of experience, providing pearls for pearl brand and jewelry houses across the globe.

Realizing the story of the pearl was often not being communicated clearly- Belle was created out of a desire to showcase and explain, first hand, the unique beauty of one of natures most iconic of gemstones.

Founded in the pearl city of Kobe, Japan, Belle has nurtured relationships with pearl producers, gaining an in-depth understanding of pearls, across the Pacific. Our approach is rooted in personally engaging responsible trade, enabled by going directly to the source, and working with small scale, family owned sustainable cultured pearl producers, whom we know by name, and have visited countless times ourselves.

Pearl Stories showcases our pearl producers from across the Pacific. Learn more about our pearls, and the people that produce them.
