Curated Collections, Precious Heirlooms and Curios.

The word Mirus derives from Latin and it’s definition embodies the essence of our brand, describing in the purest of forms what we stand for and our philosophy.
Mirus: curious, extraordinary, marvellous, rare, remarkable, strange, surprising, unusual, wonderful. One word to summarise perfectly that elusive feeling of discovering something utterly unique and unexpected that, unknown to you before, you can now no longer live without.

Mirus Lab founder Maria Sole Cortese is a jewellery designer, artisan and artist, working and living in New York City. She creates collectable, heirlooms and keepsakes that are utterly unique and handmade with utmost attention to detail in her little laboratorium in the sky. Mirus Lab pieces are usually one of a kind, incorporating original antiques and vintage items that form part of our curated collections.

Maria Sole’s work is inspired by the past, and captures a fleeting moment in time, a personal sentiment, a unique memory. She loves Victoriana, especially Memento Mori and Lover’s Eyes jewellery. She has been obsessed with lockets and collecting antiques and curios ever since she can remember, scavenging flea markets and antique shops all over the world. An obsession turned passion that keeps her busy into the little hours of the night.

Maria Sole was born in Italy and recently moved to New York City from London where she studied at Central St. Martin’s College of Art & Design and where her love for Victorian jewellery first began. Her career first started in the theatre working as a sculptor and set and costume designer, evolving eventually as a creative director in the luxury and beauty industries. The move to New York has given her time to focus on Mirus Lab and inspired her to always carry a little bit of Victorian London close to her heart.

Ultimately she is a magpie and a bit of dreamer, collecting, cataloguing and weaving stories into each of her pieces just like the stories of the theatre and of each wearer of her jewellery.
