A PERSONAL MESSAGE FROM SARAH, FOUNDER OF BELLE FEVER
Growing up in a family with three girls, it was my dream to have a personalised name necklace—but at $100, it took until my teenage years that my parents finally could budget for this dream.
I ripped that package open: a personalised sterling silver necklace that I was never going to take off! For a few weeks, I was on cloud nine, showing my necklace off to everyone, getting compliments, the works.
But then it started to tarnish. The beautiful silver finish was turning into an ugly black. I couldn’t wear it anymore. Home solutions failed me, and I couldn’t afford to get it cleaned professionally. I had no choice but to store it away.
As I got older, I had more silver jewellery, but the same issues always came up, and always in less than a month. Frustrated, I set out to find out why—and that why turned out to be nothing more than my skin, which is acidic.
That was it—and there didn’t seem to be anything I could do about it!
It felt unfair, and I felt that there had to be some solution that meant I could wear beautiful silver jewellery without worrying about tarnishing. This drove me to find that solution: Monel Silver.
Once I had that solution, nothing would stop me from creating my own jewellery, and eventually starting Belle Fever. I’m thrilled to welcome you here, and I invite you to look around our store, or get in touch with us with any questions you might have!
