Maria, the Founder of The Bella Rosa Collection, was inspired by her grandparents’ epic love story that began in southern Italy. They fell in love as teenagers, secretly courting with love letters. When Maria’s grandfather was called to serve in the Italian army, he penned his proposal to Maria’s grandmother, Rosa, and reassured her of their soon-to-be American dream as he served overseas. In 1949, their dreams came true, and they moved to New Jersey with their growing family. Three years later, a plane crash took down their family home while Rosa was inside, taking her from her family far too soon. Recovered from the ash and rubble was Rosa’s handbag, and inside was her husband’s love letter with his marriage proposal. She had carried it faithfully every day of her life.

Over 100 years after that first letter, Maria designed the first edition Bella Rosa handbag to carry a love letter from her fiancé on their wedding day. Today, the Bella Rosa Collection combines the intimacy of a personal inscription, the loving touch of embroidered couture, and the romance of Italian craftsmanship. From your engagement party to saying “I do,” they have the perfect, unique accessory for your wedding wardrobe.
