The belle-soeur string comes in four different collections; the glass collection, the mineral collection, the gemstone collection and the freshwater pearl collection.
All belle-soeur strings are named after places around the world - different places we believe resemble the expression of each string. Therefore, you will also find a short description next to each product.
The metal parts of each string (belle-soeur signature end bead, spacers and logo tag) is made of sterling silver 925S plated with a layer of 24 ct. gold. The wire holding the beads is steel plated with 24 ct gold.
The glass collection is made with seed beads (small round glass beads in multiple colours) 4 mm in size and faceted glass beads 2.5-3.5 mm in size. The beads used in the glass collection are sourced from world standard manufacturers.
The mineral collection is made using Dolomite marble, which is a white natural mineral stone dyed to create the vibrant colours you see in our mineral collection. The beads used are a combination between size 8 mm, 6 mm and 4 mm.
The gemstone collection is made using different semi-precious stone such as jade or rose quarts, which are mineral stones cut and polished and appearing in their natural colour. During the centuries, the rarity and mysterious beauty of gems have inspired the idea that gemstones have healing and symbolic properties. Therefore, gemstones have been worn as protective amulets and talismans from the ancient times to this day. The beads used are a combination between size 10 mm, 8 mm and 6 mm.
The freshwater pearl collection consists of white natural, untreated and genuine freshwater pearls in size 4.5 mm and 6.5 mm. Freshwater pearls come from oysters that mature in non-saline water and the pearls may vary slightly in size and shape. The freshwater pearl collection includes the ability to personalise your belle-soeur string, with a mother of pearl letter surrounded by two coral gemstones.
At Studio Belle-Soeur, we think about the choices we make and are passionate about constantly considering and improving our environmental footprint. The belle-soeur string is 100% plastic free.
