Sol's jewelry is gorgeous and dainty, very beautifully made, and looks beautiful when worn. I have purchased four pieces from her and all have arrived in perfect condition, carefully and nicely packaged, and have exceeded my expectations. I love her work and am very satisfied with the customer service I received. You can't go wrong with any SolDelSur jewelry.

About

Story

Sol del Sur is the jewelry line by Chilean designer Soledad Proaño.

Starting from an early age Sol had an instinct for making things, which she put to good use as a teenager, when she hitchhiked throughout Chile during summers selling beaded jewelry and leather goods that she made herself. Right after finishing her engineering studies, a course in color studies brought her back to this early passion for design and craft. Moving between the two for a while, it was relocating to the US that gave her a chance to take her passion more seriously. Sol del Sur was born in 2009, and since then has grown to be sold at reputable stores such like the Museum of Fine Art in Boston, Macy’s and Anthropologie.com. All her pieces are made by hand in her studio in Bushwick, Brooklyn.

She is heavily influenced by native South American aesthetics. Soledad designs jewelry that’s not strident, it exists as beautiful and humble simultaneously. Her brand aims to represent richness in the small details, which is something many native cultures from around the world also share.

Her collections, crafted with textiles, leather and metal, are stylized and minimalist, while full of emotion and significance. They are tributes to her life and experiences in South America and the United States, to being Latina and speaking English with an accent. But each design is also a celebration of the planet, of beauty without stereotypes, of diversity in fashion, of architecture and all the shapes around her. And Brooklyn, where she is now based.


MATERIALS
When buying our supplies we always look for three things: smaller suppliers, US made, and environmentally aware products. Here’s the detail of our current sourcing – we hope soon all our supplies will be made locally:

• All our fine metals and findings are made in the US, as well as the brass pieces.
• Brass findings are either made in the US (sometimes to order) or imported.
• Some of the leather is made in the US, most is made in India following all environmental and health regulations from the US and Europe.
• The fibers used in our braidings are either made in the US or in Italy.

Our gold plated pieces are 18kt gold, plated to the best industry standard, made to last.

Our goldfilled metal has a very thick layer of 14kt gold that should behave as regular solid gold with the proper care. It is also appropriate to wear for people with allergies – we use it in all our earwires.
