Creating jewellery is an artform and we’re committed to celebrating that. Each piece we curate is technically exceptional, crafted with expertise, skill and creativity

Why we curated this designer

Inspired by their first love, traditional Indian Jewellery, passion for India and driven by their extensive
knowledge of materials, design and craftsmanship, their first Contemporary Collection was officially launched
in September 2019. Five more collections followed and their latest addition is the Van Gelder Baoli Collection. Van Gelder Jewellery was founded in 1980 by Bernadette Van Gelder - van der Ven, who recognized the
incomparable and unique quality, beauty and meaning of oftentimes age-old traditional Indian jewellery, In the following two decades, Bernadette grew the company into a leading name in its field, creating a large and dedicated following of international private and corporate clients. In 2000, Bernadette was joined by her two daughters Fleur and Noelle, who took over the reins in 2012.
