The Bernadette van Gelder Foundation is committed to supporting female empowerment in India.


As the founder of Van Gelder Indian Jewellery, Bernadette van Gelder has travelled extensively over 35 years throughout India. In 2015, marking the occasion of transferring over the company to the next generation, daughters Marie Claire, Fleur and Noëlle presented her with The Bernadette van Gelder Foundation.


The Foundation, together with it’s partners in India, will aim to advance girls and women, making them see their potential and helping them and their families towards a better future.
