Make everyday a beautiful day with BelleStyle.
At BelleStyle, we believe that children are our future. (Yes Whitney).
We take our children and grandchildren’s lives very seriously so we try to leave the smallest carbon footprint possible. We design with antique, vintage and sustainable pieces in our jewelry. Our tags are printed in the USA on recycled paper. The linen and jute travel pouches that all of our jewelry comes in are made to reuse, but if they do get thrown away, birds can use them to nest. Our studio and showroom have a 100% ZERO waste policy, we literally recycle everything. In other words, we are a 100% landfill free company, sending nothing to the landfill.
BelleStyle also sources vintage fur, while they are real, they are not new. We offer faux suede for vegan lovers and sustainable wood beads, vintage lace, vintage charms, and chains. We chose materials from reliable sources and prefer non chemically treated stones and materials to design with.
We make every choice with you, our customer in mind and the betterment of the planet.
We want a beautiful world and we know the only way to achieve that is if we all recognize we can make a difference. We know where our materials come from the we stand by our jewelry. BelleStyle is a paper free company we do almost all our marketing online. BelleStyle also recycles all our materials that we do not use in the design process.
We hope that these small steps can inspire other companies to leave a smaller carbon footprint for all our children and all our futures.
