Inspired by the reflections in precious stones and gold, Sophie’s distinctive creations are an echo of her thrill for storytelling and avant-garde design.

Born in New York, Diane began her career as a fashion designer after graduating from Parsons School of Design; turning her creative talents to jewellery, she began designing Evil Eye bracelets and now creates modern, glamorous collections that are instantly recognisable.

Her bracelets have become something of an icon, whether it’s the Fiji Friendship incarnations, the Riva range or the recently-launched Stellar bracelets, each beholding a bar of delicate, twinkling diamonds. Known for using precious stones because of what they represent spiritually – rose quartz for love and healing, onyx for protection and amethyst for inner peace, to name a few - Monica’s designs are a big hit with the A-list, including Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge.
"Gemstones have this natural beauty that’s mesmerising, and I’ve always been drawn to them. For as long as I can remember, I’ve been collecting minerals and stones. For me, gemstone jewellery has a real talismanic quality to it, and I just love it," Monica says.

Channel your inner divinity with Bee Goddess’ ranges of unique jewellery. The gold and diamond collections include pieces that are inspired by mythological symbols and sacred meanings from around the world, such as the brand’s Star of Ishtar range or the evocative Eros designs, and span from minimalistic pendants and dainty bracelets to dazzling ear cuffs and notice-me rings.
"Objects that maintain their magic enchant me; this is one of the reasons I am drawn to symbolism. I am a seeker of light; joy, beauty and wisdom; a true believer in the infinite potential of the heart and Bee Goddess jewellery constantly reminds us of our soul’s powerful and infinite potential. Never in or out of fashion, everlasting symbols and their meanings are allowed to shine, acting as meaningful gifts to yourself or from one generation to another," says Ece Sirin, founder of the brand.
