Introducing Soru Jewellery

Founded by Sicilian/British sisters Francesca and Marianna, Soru Jewellery incorporates natural precious and semi precious gemstones. Each piece unique, carrying its own individual meaning connecting its owner to the jewels.

Inspired by childhood memories of summers spent in Sicily and the glamorous women they were surrounded by, Soru (meaning sisters in Sicillian) was born from the sisters' mutual love of gemstones.

We caught up with Francesca & Marianna to find out what inspires the collection and take you behind the scenes...

C&C: Soru Jewellery features beautiful gemstones, with each piece carrying its own individual meaning, what inspires the choice of stones for each collection?

(F) Inspiration is everywhere! We love to use unusual gemstones that seem to hold their own story within their unique features. We start first with colour choices, the colours we are lusting over for that season. Then decide from there which stones would best suit the palette.

(M) For example, rose quartz is perfect for around valentines Day with its connotations to love. A lot of the stones we use are also birth stones so this is another factor when choosing stones for the seasons. 

C&C: Soru Jewellery features beautiful gemstones, with each piece carrying its own individual meaning, what inspires the choice of stones for each collection?

M: We try to bring varied stones out for each collection, the colours often reflecting the season and mood for whats on trend, but also considering what meaning they bring. 

C&C: You both have enviable style, when preparing for a special event, how do you build your outfit, around the stones or your clothes?

M: When you have an obsession with jewellery, the outfit is often chosen after the jewellery, especially if i have a new statement piece that I want to showcase. However, if i have spotted an amazing dress or outfit that I want then I will work the jewels around that - I can always find something to work from our selection. 

Soru Jewellery instagram

C&C: We adore your instagram page (image above), as do many others judging from your huge following, what goes on behind the scenes to create a Soru instagram post?

F: We love instagram! Its been such a great tool for us to build our look and connect with our customers. We try to keep it very relaxed, taking a quick snap of our outfit for that day and the details up close, to show how we wear our jewellery and hopefully inspire others on how they might wear theirs. I also add in a few close up product shots as its hard to really capture the detail and beauty to the natural gemstones in a picture. Literally behind the scenes its just me with my iPhone. 

C&C: If you could dress any actress, musician or other influential figure in Soru Jewels, who would you pick?

M: I think Sienna Miller and Poppy Delevinge would look great in our jewels with their bohemian style. I adore Eva Mendes' style and Emma Stone is always original and sleek on the red carpet.

F: Im currently in love with Tash Sefton's style from 'They All Hate Us'. The whole Australian boho luxe vibe is right up my street and i think our jewellery fits perfectly into this. Poppy Delevingne is also another girl crush of mine.

C&C: Selecting from our collections, what would make it into your wardrobe as your ultimate Cult item and Classic Item?

M: Definitely the Osman Sleeveless Pearl Embellished Playsuit - ever since I saw Taylor Swift in it (another very stylish lady on the red carpet) I have been lusting over it. Im also loving the stripy pieces from Preen by Thornton Bregazzi.

F: Both are such beautiful collections with too much to chose from! I have a slight lace obsession and the Rebecca Minkoff Mavis lace top would be top of my Cult list. From the classic side im lusting over the Eugenia Kim brigette woven hat for my summer in Sardinia.
