The Sorrel Bay brand has had a fantastic year. Although still new to market, it has already been shortlisted for the New Designer of the Year award, been chosen to exhibit at Goldsmiths’ Fair and founder Marie Walshe made it into this year’s Professional Jeweller Hot 100.
Walshe is a keen and proactive supporter of industry transparency, and sees Sorrel Bay as being a part of the movement towards ethical trading.
Walshe strives to use Fairtrade gold and ethically sourced diamonds and gemstones for all her Sorrel Bay jewellery collections.
Sorrel Bay secured EC One as a stockist this year. Since the independent jeweller launched the brand in August it has secured very strong sales.
The industry has fallen in love with Sorrel Bay’s debut collection, which offers fine jewellery designs featuring unusual gemstones.
Gemstones include lavish shades of opal, rose cut diamonds and Chrysoprase to name but a few. Pieces comprise stackable rings, easy to wear necklaces and studs. The whole Sorrel Bay collection lends itself to be today’s heirlooms for tomorrow’s generation.
