It is said that the Earth was once a beautiful garden, filled with flowers. Then a time came when people were unable to see the true beauty of nature, and the world became a sorrowful place.
Immune to the sadness, winged fairies lived joyful lives in the deepest of Mother Nature’s secret gardens...
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.
One night, a curious and fearless fairy, who had never given up on mortals, snuck outside to see the world beyond the garden’s golden gate.
Fluttering across countless lands, she came to understand that discomfort was rooted in the absence of beauty.
The fairy was struck by her discovery.
Mother Nature, afraid of what the people would do to her beloved creatures, hid all of the flowers in her secret garden so that no human could lay eyes on them, until they had first risen and grown back into their heart.
Once back home, the young fairy decided to keep what she had discovered a secret from her sisters. On the first morning of Spring, she glimpsed the blooming of a flower, hiding behind a rock. It was tender but not flamboyant, small, yet strong.
She thought it was the most beautiful flower she had ever seen.
After waiting for Mother Nature to fall asleep, the fairy picked the flower and rushed back outside the hidden garden. Secretly, she planted the flower on top of a mountain for the whole world to see, so that beauty and happiness would once again be remembered.
That flower was a Belle, and thanks to the purity of the fairy’s heart, it still symbolizes a hope and perseverance that will last forever.
