A note on agate: One of natures most varied and vibrant designs, agates have been used in jewellery since biblical times when they were highly valued as an amulet to quench thirst and protect against illness. Still considered a protective stone today it is believed to offer strength, protect against bad dreams, stress and the draining of energy.

All our jewellery is handmade by family-run workshops and artisans in Italy and Turkey. Each piece is unique.
We only make our jewellery in small batches and encourage our customers to only purchase what sparks joy, as to avoid unnecessary returns. Nothing we make is mass produced.
Our jewellery and products are designed in-house at Soru HQ, based on a quiet leafy street in Solihull, UK.
We use natural gemstones and baroque pearls which may contain internal inclusions, irregular edges, uneven surfaces and variations in the colours. No two gems are the same, adding to the beauty and uniqueness of each individual gem.
If you wish to exchange your item for a different shape or colour, please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org. Any return postage costs would be subject to charge. Item availability for exchange will depend on the stock we have remaining.

Use a soft lint free cloth to keep your jewellery looking shiny and tarnish-free.
Store your Soru purchases in a dark, cool and dry place within the box provided. This will reduce tarnishing, scratching and tangling.
When transporting your jewellery, ensure it is kept within a box so no external pressures is accidentally applied that could bend the metal.
Remove jewellery while in water and avoid spraying perfume or applying creams where your jewellery will have contact.
Avoid extreme temperatures, humidity and sunlight. Any contact with perfumes, cosmetics and chemicals will cause discolouration.
Gemstones should never be worn around hot water, harsh chemicals or cleaners.
You can clean most gemstones with a soft, damp cloth after wearing. Very porous stones such as turquoise and emeralds should be cleaned using an untreated, dry, soft cloth only. Do not use tissue paper or paper towels to clean as they can cause scratching.

We recognise the importance of sustainability in today's world. That's why nothing at Soru is mass produced. Everything is made by hand and in small batches. Our manufacturers are small family run businesses based in Italy and Turkey with fair pay and good working conditions.

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.
All our jewellery is handmade by family-run workshops and artisans in Italy and Turkey, using solid gold, gold plated solid silver and genuine gemstones. Our inspirations come from Siciliana, Etruscan treasures, Greco-Roman artefacts, art history, mythology, celestial bodies, vintage glamour and the divine feminine.
We are two sisters (Francesca and Marianna) who grew up in a half-English half-Sicilian household. Every summer, we would travel to be with our extended family in Sicily, where we were shaped by the vibrant culture and the Sicilian women around us: strong, passionate and always draped in lots of bijoux jewellery. Now mothers, we founded Soru together to fulfil their lifelong dream of designing our own jewellery with a focus on flair, quality and sustainability.
