The Esmerelda belt is equally sophisticated, bohemian and modernist at once. Made of smooth black leather, the golden charms gently move with the body. Adjustable to be worn high on the waist or low slung on the hips - it's the belt you want to wear over a dress or a skirt. The Esmerelda charm belt closes in the back with a pin fermature, and is adorned with gold discs that have been hand stamped and brushed.
Hand crafted in Italy.
Material: Made from smooth calfskin leather
Hardware: Gold zamak hardware buckle
Care: Your Déhanche belt was crafted using the most luxurious skins, which have unique tonal variations, marks, or veins that are natural features and should be considered characteristics of your product, not imperfections.
To ensure that your belt ages beautifully, we recommend following these care instructions:
- Avoid exposing it to water, oil, perfume, or cosmetic products. If your belt does come into contact with water, gently blot it with a soft, light-colored absorbent cloth.
- Keep it away from excessive heat and intense light.
- Refrain from rubbing it against rough or abrasive surfaces, as this may cause light scratches. Instead, gently massage any scratches with a soft, dry cloth.
- When not in use, store your Déhanche belt in its protective velvet bag. Avoid storing it in hot, humid, or poorly ventilated areas, and never store it in a plastic bag.
Fit: Adjustable, can be worn tight at the waist or low around the hips.
Responsible measures: Vegetable leather treated without the use of chrome metals. Zamak alloy metal buckle which can be entirely melted down and reused.
Determining the size of a belt to wear can vary depending on if you like to wear it higher on the waist or lower around the hips. On each product page, we have a size calculator that helps you understand what size we recommend.
Another way to determine your appropriate belt size is to measure a belt that you already own. Start the tape measure at the second hole from the end measure to where it meets the buckle and round to the nearest centimeter. If you measure 80 centimeters, you will need a size Small.
If you want to style the belt over outerwear, we suggest you order one size up

The carbon emission of the Esmerelda belt has been calculated in collaboration with Doconomy and the 2030 Calculator. The entire carbon emission of this belt includes the mining for metals of the buckles, all production and transportation and also the methane emissions during the animal’s lifespan. Déhanche has calculated the carbon emission as 39.27kg CO2e, or 0.04 tons. Based on the recommendation of Doconomy, we have benchmarked our internal carbon tax at $130 per ton.
For each belt purchased, we are committed to investing $6 in decarbonization microprojects in collaboration with Milkywire’s Climate Transformation Fund.
