It was a quest for delicate, understated bracelets for her bridesmaids ahead of her wedding that sparked a vision for AURUM + GREY founder Talya Paskin.
With a strong fashion background, London-based Talya knew she wanted her bracelets to be the jewellery equivalent of casual-luxe apparel. Dainty everyday styles that weren’t excessively showy, yet forever-pieces for her friends to keep and wear long after the wedding. She set out to make truly unique bracelets from precious materials, hand-finished, and each adorned with a grey rose cut diamond. Yet when she approached various workshops globally with her specifications, they deemed the designs impossibly delicate until, ironically, she found the perfect partners in an atelier in London who were passionate about creating the minimalist styles. Like a kid in a candy store Talya began to bring all the designs she had been dreaming up for so long to life, creating a growing collection of jewellery staples to blend seamlessly with her wardrobe.
Much like she envisioned, Talya's friends wore their bracelets every day, but they also started ordering more pieces from the collection and expanded into earrings, rings and pendants. Organically, AURUM + GREY was born and officially launched in 2016 while Talya was on maternity leave. AURUM means gold in Latin, referencing the rose gold that runs through the collections, and GREY refers to the understated grey diamonds that are used in the collections. A growing number of friends-of-friends commissioned pieces, and with some of them being beauty and style editors, the collection began to receive press coverage and so six months into motherhood, Talya resigned from her day job to meet the growing demand.
AURUM + GREY now spans the Rose Cut, Etoile, Initial Thoughts, Fruit Cocktail, and Skin collections and has been worn by Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid, Kylie Jenner and Kourtney Kardashian to name but a few.
With a minimalist luxe aesthetic, simple and elegant lines, and their patrons always forefront of mind, AURUM + GREY creates second-skin jewellery that can be worn with everything.
