Safety & Health
Your safety and the safety of all people has always been and remains our top priority. From the time we were founded in 2003, until today we focus on non-toxic, eco-friendly and sustainable ways to ensure our company leaves as little footprint as possible. We have chosen to grow in an organically sound and sustainable way. We make sure that we are leaving this world a better place for our children by being a 100% landfill free company in our studio.
Bellestyle cleans every piece of jewelry we make and sell before it is packaged into it’s sustainable jewelry box then placed in our sustainable linen travel pouch for shipping. We clean our real metals and wipe down stones, regularly. We are a family run boutique brand that focuses on health and safety since 2003. Our metals are lead and nickel free. Some of our pierce are hypo-allergenic copper that is naturally non toxic.
Bellestyle designs our pieces with recycled, up cycled, vintage and antique findings. We also use all recycled paper on our print materials such as stickers, earrings cards, necklaces and boxes. All our packaging is recycled tissue paper, or sustainable compostable foam peanuts. Our boxes are all recycled. We are a landfill free company which means that we do not send any waste to landfills. Rather, we compost all waste food from our studio.
We recycle everything else including our waste metals such as silver, copper, gold and brass. If you ever would like to send your waste metals to us, we happily will recycle them for you. We do give gift cards for waste or recycled metals and old jewelry. The gift card amount reflects the recycled metal collected. For more information about our recycling program please email us at email@example.com.
We are a sustainable brand, this means that we create One of. A kind original pieces with antique and vintage findings combined with new metals and chains. We revive these vintage treasures into modern wearable pieces. We also package each piece in linen travel pouches that if thrown away, can be used as nesting for animals or easily compost into the ground. We also off sustainable crystal dishes, shell jewelry dishes and silver plated jewelry dishes. Locally sourced and vintage items are also for sale on our website. We recently introduced our Maison collection of sustainable home, crystal, and silver items. Bellestyle added local soap maker Woodberry from St. Louis early Feburary 2022, and sell local non tox candles from Glow candle and Wooden Spoons by One Eyed Blind.

Non-Toxic Jewelry & Gifts:
It’s our goal for you to feel good about our jewelry and home items. We offer non-toxic metals that are nickel and lead free. These metals include: sterling silver or 925, all types of gold (10K, 14K, 24K, gold filled) copper, and brass.
All of our items pass the E.U. Standards for jewelry quality, unless otherwise noted. Some of our imported items from Asia are copper. Copper is a hypo-allergenic metal and can turn a slight green if it gets wet. This is nothing to worry about, it will shine right back up with our sunshine cloth. We choose copper to design our more affordable pieces and because it is a hypo-allergenic metal.
The candles we offer are made with a lead-free wick, this means that you don’t breathe in toxic lead unknowingly when you light your candles. We also offer cooking spoons that are non-toxic and sustainable as no trees are cut down to create them.
