Introducing: Soru Fine Collection

We couldn't be happier to present our debut fine jewellery collection for Soru. This is a project that has been close to our hearts for a while, the design process has been a joy and we are delighted with the final result. Inspired by our love of Italy, we have incorporated age old traditional techniques of micromosaic art set with precious gemstones and 18kt gold into our fine jewellery collection. Each piece is a one of a kind, handmade, wearable piece of art.

Art and mosaics of the night skies provided us with inspiration for our collection.

 
We worked with a small family run workshop in Italy, who have been creating micromosaic for years and passed down the technique from generation to generation. The artisan technique of micromosaic is painstakingly intricate and precise, an art taught by experts that takes years to perfect. The art was used centuries ago, before photography to create miniature portraits of loved ones to wear close to their heart, or an image of a place visited or landscape, to remember travels. Each piece is so intricate that its hard to believe its a mosaic made of hundreds of tiny pieces placed by hand to create a complete image- a piece of artwork. 
We decided on 3 pieces to introduce our collection. They are 3 pendants; Celestial Star, Love Heart and Majolica Tile. Each pieces take around 20-30 days to complete, the process is time consuming and this is evident in the remarkable results. Set in 18kt gold and surrounded by brilliant cut diamonds and sapphires, the mosaics are made using special coloured glass enamel. The glass is cut into thin rods and chipped into tiny pieces called tesserae.

    I purchased the heart pendant for Christmas. It is truly spectacular and I know it will be a firm favourite of my pieces for years to come. The colours and craftsmanship are incredible and the presentation box is gorgeous. An expensive piece but I adore it.

    I think they are fabulous, beautiful, wonderful, I really love jewellery with art and tradition in its vain, the colour is so gorgeous, I would love to have them all in my collection one day. Probably will take some time given the price tag hehe …

    Hi there,

    Compliments on the craftsmanship with the fine collection. Regarding the star, will there be anywhere to view these in person?

    Also will you offer payments options/instalments such as Klarna as the price point is obviously very different to your usual collection?

    Thank you and merry Christmas!
