The term BELLAVIE comes from the Italian word for beautiful and the French word for life, literally beautiful life. Find the things in life that make you feel beautiful, surround yourself with them. Dear friends and family, your signature perfume or a great pair of jeans. Surrounding yourself with things make you feel beautiful help express your personal style and can give you the confidence to step out and conquer whatever awaits.
BELLAVIE is an attitude and a lifestyle. The BELLAVIE woman is smart, savvy, loyal to her own personal style and doesn't take herself too seriously. She's a modern day classic, both down to earth and chic all in one, all in the way she carries herself. She lives life, loves life and cherishes those in her life.
Even as a little girl, the importance of the right accessories was not lost on me. My mother, her friend Mona, my auntie Elsie - these were all women that were glamorous in my eyes. They wore beautiful jewelry - whether real deal gemstones, large wooden art pieces or colorful fashion jewelry from the mall. As a child, it was all beautiful to me.
As I got older, my appreciation for all things gemstone grew; I educated myself on the gems - where they came from, how they were cut, set and so on. It was thrilling to learn about each new gem, a new color I hadn't seen before, each one created by nature in her impressive palette.
