NYC is filled with such great art, music, architecture and people. Our office is in midtown Manhattan with a view of the Chrysler Building from our window, one of our favorite buildings in the world. We’ve always used the Art Deco era as a jumping off point for our designsCo-founders and sisters Nicole & Kim Carosella grew up in Long Island, NY, where they were raised with a deep appreciation for the arts and shared a love of design. After graduating with a Fine Arts degree from USC, Nicole studied Jewellery Design at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City. Kim attended Tulane University for Art History, and then relocated to Florence, Italy, to continue her studies.

Upon Kim’s return to New York, the sisters decided to set the course for their future business. After working in the jewelry industry, in early 2012, with a clear vision, Nicole and Kim founded Sorellina – meaning younger sister in Italian. With an opportunity to develop jewellery that expresses their own unique sensibility, the sisters began clearly defining what great design means to them and how that translates to their clientele. Neither subtle nor discreet, Sorellina pieces are bold statement pieces made for the urban, modern woman. Sorellina creates a harmonious dichotomy by seamlessly blending opposing ideas of feminine with masculine and vintage with modern.

Can you talk a little bit about how both of you chanced upon jewellery designing?
Nicole: After college, I went to FIT to study fashion design. I took a jewellery fabrication class for fun and fell in love and switched my focus to jewellery. I would bring home projects and show them to Kim — and that’s when we decided to join forces and start Sorellina.
