The New York–based brand Sorellina is always reliable for offering jewelry that customers might really covet. And it isn’t just a casual “oh that’s nice,” sort of thing—it’s full-on get your glands salivating, pupils turned into heart emojis kind of wanting. It’s aspirational for some, attainable for others, and memorable for all.
Sorellina’s Tarot collection is not the only of its genre to be featured here on JCK, but, imbued with the brand’s DNA, it stands in its own as totally remarkable and recognizably theirs.
The Tarot collection had been percolating in the mind of Nicole Carosella—co-owner of the brand along with her sister, Kim—for years before its release, as the designer took notes on the iconography of the decks long before she turned them into jewelry. There are 78 cards in a standard tarot deck, and so far, Sorellina has created seven—Lovers, Sun, Star, Moon, Wheel, Strength, and, its newest release, The Empress.
Draw an Empress card and tap into its meaning of femininity, motherhood, beauty, nature, and harmony. It’s the birth of life, of beauty, a new love, a new you, even a new hobby. As with most tarot cards, a connection to your life can be drawn in some way, and once you’ve see this one, well, you’re going to want to draw it. Not that you need a reason to wear something so incredibly beautiful, but it certainly does wonders to feel such a full and meaningful connection with your jewelry—there’s power in it.
Speaking of power: The Empress. Sorellina’s version (at top) radiates in yellow gold, with yellow mother-of-pearl and a crown of glittering diamond stars. Her golden swan by her side, the card is adorned in blue and green sapphires and framed with color-change garnet baguettes.
But the brand doesn’t rest with creating just the additional tarot card, spectacular as it is. With that release comes a line of coordinating jewelry, taking elements from the Empress and extending them to rings, bracelets, pendants, and earrings. Diamond stars adorn chunky gold rings, bracelets, and hoop-style earrings; the graceful Swan gets her deserved spotlight in a one-of-a-kind opal ring and a hand-painted rock crystal pendant that rivals the main tarot card in exquisiteness. A mini tarot card pendant takes the color-change garnet frame and shrinks it to surround the Empress’ shield.
