For more than 45 years, Parlé has believed that jewelry - and the materials from which it's crafted - should tell a story and connect to values like trust, love, commitment, and family. In 1973, Frank Farnsworth started mining Idaho opal in Spencer, ID. He fashioned the rough opal into gemstones, set the gems into simple jewelry pieces, and ultimately built the foundation for Parlé, now a multi-generational, family-run jewelry brand.
Over time and out of necessity, they have diversified their gemstone inventory to include opals of all kinds of origins, Montana sapphires, tourmalines, Lotus garnets, and much more.
The current generation's thoughtful approach to design, which balances artfulness with understated elegance, has won them many design awards and accolades within the industry and devoted fans alike.
