About Soru Jewellery
Soru; meaning sisters in Sicilian, launched in the UK in 2013 by British-Sicilian sisters Francesca and Marianna. Inspired by the way in which Sicilian women adorn themselves with jewellery for every occasion they set about creating a jewellery collection that was bold and ornate, reflecting the passion of Sicily itself.
Natural semi-precious stones and crystals, such as agates, moonstones, opals and turquoise are carefully selected and set within solid silver. Each piece is handmade and has its own meaning and natural energy.

What was the spark for Soru Jewellery? Where did the story begin?
Me and my sister have always loved fashion, style, jewellery and dressing up, we are both quite creative souls and at a time in our lives when we had left our jobs to look after our young children we just decided it was the best opportunity for us to have a go at building our own business based on what we ourselves loved to do and jewellery was the natural avenue for us with my experience as a jewellery buyer and Marianna’s husband working in the fine jewellery trade.
