Scarlet Green

Everyone is talking about green this spring, emerald green to be more specific, as in The Emerald City, as in Oz: The Great. When The Wizard of Oz came out in 1939, another movie came out that year too, you may have heard of it: Gone With The Wind.  This epic, wonderful, miserable movie featured one of the most complex, you love to hate her characters of all time, Miss Katie Scarlett O'Hara.  She is one tough B-word, and thanks to costume designer, Walter Plunkett, she also always dressed impeccably.  Her name may be Scarlett, but she wore lots and lots of green (my favorite color).  So, instead of getting on the Oz bandwagon, I choose Scarlet as my inspiration to Bellissima's take on spring green.

This is a publicity still, this scene in the movie is when I hate her the most (she's really gotta get over Ashley Wilkes) but, what an amazing 'robe'!

Her famous 'curtain' dress,  who else could pull off curtains like that?

So now that you're all probably like me, "Pea green with envy" over her wardrobe, maybe some emerald Bellissima jewels can be a more realistic approach to wearing green!

Bellissima Spring Line 2013

This Spring, we are keeping our line clean and simple.   Our best selling pieces in our best selling colors, with a few new styles and pops of color to keep things interesting.  Here are some of my favorite styles from the collection.  To request the full line sheet, email us!
Our Skinny Hoops.  Light-weight, and so easy to wear

What's a spring without this cuff?  Somehow it never gets old, and it's so easy to pop one on in the morning.

I'm a big fan of the long and lean chains.  You can wear them long for a casual look, or double them to add some sophistication.  I love our solid colored ones, but love the pop of coral in this version!

I LOVE our newest filigree earring.  It's the perfect shape and size.

The crescent ear is the perfect summer earring for day and night.

Our skinny round stack bracelets are experiencing quite the revival.  I love stacking them with other embellished skinny bangles.  You can't have enough in Tokyo.

This is a new chain ear.  I like it, and I have high hopes for it!  It's kind of unique, but not totally out there.

All our chain necks are still doing really well, and they're all available in these colors.
