The “Belle” collection takes its name from the Bellflower, the fairy-tale saviour of the beauty in this world.
Its story tells us that we should always remember and protect the beauty of nature, where blooming flowers bring happiness and joy.
Stenzhorn decided to become the bearer of this message, expressed throughout this collection to accentuate how important it is for all of us to protect Mother Nature.
Nature is home to a large family of bellflowers. We chose to capture the tropical beauty of Campanella Ipomoea Aquatica.
Each piece in the collection is set with fine gold channels that hold round and baguette diamonds. It’s a technique that faithfully recreates the tiny veins carrying water into flower petals.
Each piece is detailed with a splash of yellow diamonds and pink sapphires that stem from its bud’s centre.
The story’s protagonist – the winged fairy – uniquely details each item in the collection.
In one of the pendants she is hidden inside the flower and can only be unveiled by sliding a thin gold chain that dangles from the piece.
As legend has it, the fairies that live in bellflower fields use buds to fashion hats and lanterns for their midsummer parties. Inspired by these stories, each ring is presented with a fairy sitting on the shank and resting in the flower’s shadow.
Ring shanks conjure the shape of a flower’s stem, evolving in a precious swirl around the finger with a diamond set at the very tip.
As support for the delicate diamond flowers, a yellow or rose gold gallery blossoms under each ring. The gallery’s design flourishes in gold curls, and culminates in the profiles of petit bellflowers or drops of diamonds.
The gallery’s curly shape is inspired by the oversized capital letters used in children’s fairy tales to begin a new chapter. These intricate letters often feature elaborate swirls while incorporating flowers and even characters from the story that they help to tell.
