Contributor Elizabeth Collazos is back with a great piece about a fabulous jewelry line, Bella Roche. This is worthwhile read particularly since Mother’s Day is coming up fast and furious. (Just saying peeps, get your mom, wife, girlfriend, best friend, grandmother, aunt or sister, something nice! This post is a great shopping guide for fabulous jewelry!)
Capturing Beauty with Bella Roche Jewelry
Bella Roche is a stunning jewelry collection that is sexy, elegant and artistic. Lorelei Mariano is the creator and designer of Bella Roche Jewelry, which is a custom-made, one-of-a-kind jewelry collection, which reflects art.
Lorelei Mariano and her gorgeous jewelry!!
No two pieces are the same. The color hues and high-quality materials are serenely stunning with a touch of the unexpected that symbolize Lorelei’s personal aesthetic. Ironically, I have known Lorelei for many years. We share a friendship and she has always incorporated a unique and beautiful creativity into her personal style. I actually remember the day she expressed that she wanted to create her own jewelry collection. Since that moment, Lorelei has worked with determination and passion. It is with genuine excitement to share the story and beauty of Bella Roche Jewelry.
The Bella Roche collection consists of rings, necklaces, earrings and bracelets. The collection consists of six separate lines/collections that each tell a unique story.
“To me, creating each piece of jewelry is a process of connecting to my heart; designing and connecting each gemstone with positive affirmations and intentions,” said Lorelei.
Queen Anne Statement Necklace
|The stunning pendant on this necklace is comprised of purple agate, amethyst nuggets and 24k gold fill tassel. The 24k gold fill decorative chain is accented with an additional, dainty amethyst chain.
Mariano travels around the globe to find treasures to create her original designs, using only the highest quality materials which have been meticulously hand-crafted. Her astute eye for fashion, color, texture, and composition, along with her innate ability to see beauty from within the stones sets her apart from other designers.
Princess Crystal Drop Earring
Crystal teardrops with delicate stone and chain detailing on crystal and Swarovski components.
Materials: 24k gold chain overlay, Swarovski Crystal components, Onyx, teardrop crystal encased in 24k gold and Swarovski crystal earring hook.
Moonstone Statement Ring
Faceted Moonstone on custom hammered 24k gold overlay.Size: Adjustable
With so many designers creating jewelry lines, it is refreshing that Lorelei does not follow trends. She derives inspiration from within her heart, her family and her many travels. Many view Bella Roche as wearable art, including several of her celebrity clients.
“My son’s love of the sea inspired me to create a collection (“The KT Collection”), while my daughter’s bohemian flair was inspiration to design ‘bohemian statement looks pieces’ (“The Sage Collection”), said Mariano.”
Diana Tassel Bracelet
Swarovski crystal components and onyx beaded tassel enhance this unique bracelet.
Materials: Swarovski crystals components encased in 24k gold, sterling silver overlay chain, onyx beads over 24k gold.
For Lorelei, a gorgeous aged door in Santorini can evoke inspiration for color and composition, while the landscape of the Amalfi Coast, the romanticism of Paris, and architectural wonder of Rome and Florence will bring about the unexpected in her designs.
“I feel the stones “speak” to me and magically transform into a beautiful statement that enhance one’s own inner beauty and personal style,” said Mariano.
Lorelei’s feels it is important to be transparent and reveal beauty from within- and that is where it begins.
Countess Brushed Gold & Crystal Drop Earring
This dangling earring features a drop of brushed brass dipped in 24K Gold with a collection of Pave’ cut Crystals, suspended from a Crystal studded frame, forming this fashion statement earring.
“I feel giving back and helping others is the key to happiness and I want to inspire women to stand in their inner strength and beauty,” said Mariano.
Each piece Lorelei creates comes from her heart and she feels joy in knowing that she has shared her story to pass on to others to cherish.
Two different necklaces from Lorelei’s collection.
Unlisted, Information including price upon request
Lorelei primarily uses semi-precious stones such as amethyst, carnelian, garnet, onyx, labradorite, turquoise, jasper, run quartz, crystals, jade, chrysoprase, aquamarine and pearls with a few pendants having small set diamonds.
“Faceted chalcedony chain, 24k gold fill spike ornaments, aquamarine enhanced with 24k gold and drop centerpiece consisting of crystal, druzy and chrysoberyl, enhanced with 24k gold.”
For future collections, Lorelei plans to incorporate small elements of precious stones such as additional diamonds and rubies. Her sourcing inspiration is personal but Lorelei expressed that she has purchased stones and pendants in Italy, France, India, Bali, Australia and Greece. “Italy is a favorite location for its rare and vintage stones,” said Mariano. The Bella Roche rings are stunning statement rings and are made in the United States. The stones are set in custom hammered 24k gold overlay, with adjustable ring bands. The remainder of Lorelei’s collection are primarily constructed by her, but she does have professional designers that assist her when needed. For the necklaces, bracelets and earrings, each high quality, hand cut stone is detailed with 24k gold.

Style Fashion Week LA
Lorelei and Bella Roche made an impressive debut recently at Style Fashion Week LA .
She was extended an invitation to present her line by Kenn Gray, the Artistic Director of Style Fashion Week LA, which was held at the Pacific Design Center. Jewelry tables were set up as fashion designers presented their collections on the catwalk. It was an exhilarating four-day event held in the evening. The Bella Roche jewelry table was featured in a prime location — directly across from the massive catwalk.
Lorelei Mariano and Christina Milian
It’s an exclusive and star-studded event and Lorelei had the opportunity to meet Christina Milian, who acquired a piece, Kurt Russell (who loved her jewelry), Princess Francesca Giioia Drommi (Princess of Rome – who acquired a necklace) and her husband, Jacques Silberstein, who is an iconic French Vogue photographer. Since it was an exclusive event, Mariano had the fantastic opportunity to connect with prominent fashion designers, celebrity stylists, celebrities and fashion writers regarding possible future collaborations. Her jewelry table was a standout.
Honey Quartz and Amazonite Bracelet
Honey Quartz, Opal Druzy and Amazonite nuggets encased in 24k Gold electroform and a Swarovski Crystal tassel, form this statement bracelet.
Whether it is a black tie charity event or simply dressing up jeans, it brings Lorelei great pleasure knowing she has enhanced a client’s personal style and individuality. Bella Roche designs evoke timeless beauty and elegance, transforming beautiful stones into wearable art for the fashion savvy woman to cherish.
Diamond and Pearls Ring
Pave’ cut Cubic Zirconium align within Pearl; forming a delicate balance to create a simplistic touch of glamour, making their mark atop gently hammered, liquid Silver.
Bella Roche is just getting started in a sense and has so many exciting opportunities ahead. Lorelei will be creating an edgy men’s line collection and is deeply involved in many philanthropic organizations, where she kindly donates various pieces for galas such as “Miracle Babies,” AWFA Dog Rescue and many others. Lorelei’s creativity never stops.
Personally, I can’t wait to report further upon Lorelei’s philanthropy, special collaborations and her handmade, artistic cards. To learn more about Lorelei Mariano and Bella Roche, you can visit http://www.bellaroche.com.
