Find me on:

David Connolly, Inc. and Jabel Jewelry

Meet David Connolly.  He is more than just the owner and president of design house David Connolly, Inc. that we offer here at Bella's, he is a champion of the American jewelry industry with a passion for gemology. It all began shortly after David graduated Tufts University in Boston, Massachusetts.  He began working for the State Department in Columbia and fell in love with the country's rich deposit of emeralds.  He started a small emerald importing business, selling his stone in Boston. From there he began learning about jewelry and developing an appreciation for the craftsmanship that goes into creating every piece of jewelry.  Overtime as his passion grew so did his company and today he owns one of the most respected design houses in the country.   

One of his greatest interests in preserving iconic American jewelry collections.  Since 2004 David and his wife, Nora have saved 2 historic jewelry designs houses and hold the designer records for legendary designers F.F. Felger and Larre.  "I believe in the artistry, skill, and craftsmanship of the America jewelry industry," said Mr. Connolly. Today his family of design collections includes:
