During her 26-year tenure as chief trader for Kaiser Gems, Bella Campbell amassed an incredible personal cache of stones, and she’s decided to use them in her Campbellian Collection. The one-of-a-kind pieces—which consist of rings and earrings, primarily — are loaded with potent color from stones like blue zircon, rubellite, spessartite and tanzanite, and demonstrate Campbell’s eye for design and exceptional gems.
