SORU: from Sicilian “soru”, meaning sister.
We are two half-Sicilian half-English sisters, Francesca and Marianna. Since 2013, we have been designing the luxurious, unique jewellery of Soru together in the heart of England. Our vision has always been to create jewellery that exudes creativity, happiness and Italian flair, made using high quality materials and sold at attainable prices. Our jewellery is ethically handmade mostly in Italy and Turkey, using solid gold, gold plated solid silver and genuine gemstones. Our diamond pieces are ethically sourced and adhere to the Kimberly Process.
We now send orders globally and can be found in retailers across the world, including Fenwick and Harvey Nichols. See our stockists here. We've attained a diverse celebrity following including HRH The Princess Of Wales Kate Middleton, Rosie Huntington-Whitely, Chiara Ferragni, Negin Mirsalehi, Rita Ora, Jessie J, Millie Mackintosh and more. See our As Seen On page here.
As sisters who love to design and mothers who want to inspire our daughters, we aim to create jewellery for all women, no matter their age or role. As working mothers ourselves, we know how difficult it can be to find jobs that offer the flexibility to be there for your children as well as earn. This is something we are proud to offer. Surrounded by a strong team of women and inspired by women everyday!
We strive to create a high quality, semi-fine fusion of statement and everyday jewellery collections, using precious metals and semi-precious gemstones to make every wearer feel her best.
Our aim is for the creativity, happiness and Italian flair of each piece to shine through the design. We believe jewellery is for everyday and all occasions. A special piece of jewellery has the power to transform a look and the mood of the wearer, and our jewellery is created with every woman of every age in mind.
The driving force behind Soru's designs is a love for Sicily, though our inspirations come from a variety of sources including Etruscan history, mythology, astrology, vintage glamour and the divine feminine. You can understand our inspirations based on our collections:
Jewellery inspired by depictions of the sky in artwork throughout history, particularly in the mosaics and frescos in Italy, as well as constellations and the mythology surrounding celestial bodies.DISCOVER CELESTIAL COLLECTION

Ethics & Sustainability
We realise the importance of sustainable and ethical production, which is why we choose to produce small batches of items as opposed to mass produce.
The majority of our collection is handmade by small family-run businesses in Italy and Turkey with fair pay and good working conditions. We put a lot of love and work into every piece, so it takes time to create each one and that's why wait times for things to come back in stock may sometimes be longer. We believe that this make each piece feel special and we encourage our customers to only buy items that spark joy to reduce returns. A selection of our everyday diamond pieces are handmade in China using materials sourced ethically that adhere to the Kimberly process.
We have our online community to thank for our growth. Because of you, we are able to keep doing what we love and share it with you. To this day, we value our followers and supporters on social media and love being able to connect with you. We've made so many special friendships through our social media that we still cherish to this day. With a personable and approachable customer service and social platforms, we bring the customer into our story, so we can be a part of theirs. We encourage our customers to use the hashtag#SoruJewelleryso everyone in our community can feel inspired and included. Our Instagram is full of style tips, updates, behind-the-scenes fun and exclusive sales.

Hello! We are Francesca and Marianna, two half-Sicilian half-English sisters. We spent every summer as children with our extended family in Sicily, a place we absolutely fell in love with. As we grew up, we also developed an eye for fashion and accessories. Once we became mothers, we decided to pursue our dream of designing our own jewellery together.read our story
