The perfect geometry and elegance of Myriam Soseilos challenges traditional views of fine jewellery design.

A delicious dichotomy of aesthetics comes together in the fine jewellery collections by Myriam Soseilos, aka MyriamSOS, where architectural minimalism meets playfulness, and simplicity merges seamlessly into sophistication. 

Designed for “strong-minded businesswomen characterised by their inner power and perseverance”, the avant-garde jewels with a mix of geometric lines and intricate design details are sure to become talking points wherever you go.

Cypriot designer Myriam Soseilos is proof that it is never too late to follow your dreams. After bowing to family pressure and studying logistics, she tried several different career paths, including journalism and advertising, before pouring her energies into jewellery design. Once she found her passion, Myriam worked tirelessly to build up a brand from scratch, and her hard graft and dedication have certainly paid off. Not only was she named Designer of the Year 2013 at the London jewellery show Treasure, and shortlisted for Retail Jeweller's New Designer of the Year award, her jewels have also been worn by celebrities such as Oscar-nominated actress Jodie Whittaker.

The SOS in the brand name comes from the first three letters of Myriam's surname, which is pronounced "sauce", and also represents the brand's motto: "to provide 'sauce and spice' to any outfit".

Power ring in rose gold with diamonds and white sapphires
Inspired by London’s Olympic Velodrome, this MyriamSOS Power ring is set with sapphires and diamonds (£1,691).

"Objects, buildings, furniture, shapes and technology are the main inspirations for my designs," says Myriam. Her innovative Transformers collection consists of handcrafted bracelets, rings, necklaces and earrings that can be converted into different jewels. Redefining the concepts of flexibility, individuality and exclusivity, these minimalist and versatile jewels are extremely wearable.

Years in the making, Myriam says of the collection: "The Transformers collection was born out of my desire to create a contemporary collection that would appeal to women with busy lifestyles and that could be both elegant and versatile. The thought of creating beautiful accessories for women with hectic lives is a continuous source of inspiration."

Petronas earrings with diamonds and white sapphires
Inspired by the Twin Towers in Kuala Lumpur, the Petronas earrings from MyriamSOS are set in rose gold (£2,287).

Her latest Skylines jewellery collection was inspired by the architecture of major cities such as London, Hong Kong, New York and Paris. From the Petronas Twin Towers in Kuala Lumpur to the Empire State Building in NYC and London’s Olympic Velodrome, each iconic building is reinterpreted via clean, geometric lines set with diamonds and coloured gemstones. The result is a versatile collection that will effortlessly take the wearer from dawn to dusk, and from boardroom to bar.

Help us make the future bright

Since founding The Jewellery Editor in 2010, we have grown our digital magazine to be the number one global source of information and inspiration for fine jewellery and luxury watches.

3,500 articles, 150 videos and a reach of over 2 million per month on social media later, we have offered unparalleled and highly respected coverage of our sector. However, despite our editorial success, we are financially struggling as an independent publisher.

Entirely funded, owned and run by Christine and Maria in London, we are now looking to sell The Jewellery Editor so that it can continue to grow in the hands of a different owner. As e-commerce becomes a priority in our industry, we believe there is huge potential for engaging editorial content and are seeking a buyer who shares our values and passion so that under their guidance we can give a bright future to the platform.

We can’t commit to financing the website for much longer so if we don’t manage to initiate any meaningful conversations in the next few weeks, the website will be frozen on 1st April 2018. If and when we find a suitable partner we will revive it and take it to the next stage.

If you are interested to discuss the above, please contact [email protected]

Alternatively, if you are willing to help, you can donate so that in the meantime, we can continue to publish more interesting content.
