Our Story


Because of her

For more than a century, Chana Regev’s family has been a leader in the world’s colored gemstone industry. As the 4th generation in her family’s business, Chana became the first and only female in her family to launch her own collections of designer jewelry.

In her own words, Chana explains “When I look at a gemstone, I see more than one of nature’s most beautiful artifacts. I can see the house that should be built around it.”

Growing up steeped in the knowledge of beautiful gemstones, Chana spent years collaborating with the world’s most prestigious jewelers and fashion houses. She created the Carelle brand, based on her lifelong infatuation with brilliant colored stones and her desire to reveal their beauty in new ways.

She named the company “car elle” – French for Because of Her – as a celebration of today’s independent and exuberant woman. 

The Carelle signature leaf motif is incorporated into every design.  Each piece is handcrafted and manufactured in New York City, where it is also laser-inscribed with the weight of the stone and the company logo.

Carelle jewelry is worn throughout the world by women with a passion for life.
