Pearls with a Purpose
From a family of three girls, three aunts, four grandmothers, and great aunts, jewelry came into our lives as gifts in all shapes, sizes, and value. Hazel & Marie was born out of this passion for gifting heirloom treasures.
Katie founded Hazel & Marie in 2009 to fulfill her passion for gifting while living abroad. She was working in Shanghai, China when she found herself spending most of her free time shopping and learning about pearl jewelry.
The magic of gifting pearls was infectious, but the challenge of finding gift-worthy quality and consistency was not an easy task. From hand-knotted strands to sturdy clasps and signature finishing we craft our natural pearl jewelry to reflect the values passed down by our great grandmother and namesake, Hazel & Marie. Hazel & Marie was founded to continue the tradition of sharing pearls with those you love.
We believe our pearls are full of passion and donate 15% of all Hazel & Marie pearl jewelry purchases to Birthday Wishes, an organization that provides homeless children with birthday parties.
