Soru means ‘sisters’ in Sicilian, so it comes as no surprise that this much-lauded jewellery brand was founded half English-Sicilian sisters Francesca Kelly and Marianna Doyle. Bringing together their experience as a jewellery buyer and as a photographer, Francesca and Marianna create standout jewellery, with each piece ethically handmade in Italy or Turkey using gold-plated sterling silver and semi-precious gemstones.

The WALD Berlin jewellery line is the brainchild of former stylist Dana Roski and model Joyce Binneboese. The pair met while working at the ever-cool WALD concept boutique in Berlin, which they soon took over and garnered a reputation for spotting new talent and creative design. After a small hiatus, they returned with their debut jewellery collection in 2018, and are quickly becoming one of the most saught-after brands. As well as upping the style stakes, WALD Berlin pieces are handmade in Germany by a fair trade collective of women and grandmothers, and have been spotted on the likes of French actress Marion Cotillard.
