Czech jewellery brand Belda celebrating 100 years in New York
Belda Jewellery company’s handmade, limited edition collections offer striking bracelets, brooches, necklaces, earrings and rings. Ran by Ladislav Belda and her family members, Belda started the company when she emigrated to the US in 1915 and established 'Czechoslovak Beads & Co' in Manhattan which soon became an icon for design.
Celebrating their centenary in 2015, the recent collection ‘Cesky Raj’, which translates as ‘Czech Paradise’, pays tribute to the beautiful countryside in the Czech Republic.
Working mainly with silver and precious stones, Belda’s designs are inspired by various materials, techniques, and shapes. The family company will also expand their collection and collaborate with a local design studio to introduce a men’s collection sometime this year.
‘Cesky Raj’ recently earned Belda a nomination for a Czech Grand Design Award- the country’s most prestigious design accolade.
And... That's it!
