Come on a Jewellery Journey

Delicate and feminine is the perfect way to describe the jewellery you’ll get from Sit and Wonder.

It’s been an interesting road for Sydney financial analyst turned jewellery designer Emily Ko.

She quit her job in 2015 to pursue her dream and we should be grateful for that.

“All my pieces are made out of sterling silver, solid 9k gold and are quite fine and dainty so perfect for everyday wear,” she says.

Emily says the poor quality of affordable jewellery she used to buy prompted her to start working on her own stuff, rather than just sit and wonder – thus the name of her label.

“I love the idea of owning real jewellery but not the price tag that comes with it,” she says.

“I also notice that if you go in to a lot of fine jewellery stores, the styles are more traditional and I want real jewellery that is also modern.”

Emily’s own simple and classic style influences what she makes, with the final touches done by hand.

“I love wearing neutral colours or simple prints with interesting cuts and then dressing up an outfit with lots of accessories," she says.

“It’s all about monochromes and metallic for me and I love stacking rings and layering necklaces to create my own unique look.

“When I’m designing my pieces, I’m always considering how they might work together and I keep them quite minimal.”

Dealing directly with manufacturers and only having an online store means better value for us – fantastic!

“My jewellery label is about making real jewellery more accessible and providing value for the customer.”

Sit and Wonder is expected to launch early September. Mark it in your diary and remember sitandwonder.com.au.
