Handcrafted fine jewellery label SARAH & SEBASTIAN was launched in 2011 by Sydney-based couple Sarah Gittoes and Robert Sebastian Grynkofki. Originally conceived as a bespoke collection designed for their friends to wear, the brand has flourished into a high-fashion phenomenon.
The combined passion of the designer duo for artful design and craftsmanship rests at the label’s essence and is the first stepping-stone for each collection.
Robert Grynkofki’s industrial design and background as a goldsmith coupled with Sarah’s knowledge of art and design creates the perfect balance in each and every piece, which is ethically hand made in the couple’s Bondi studio.
In 2015, SARAH & SEBASTIAN received the prestigious PRIX DE MARIE CLAIRE award for best Australian Accessories Brand and has received international and local acclaim including a collaboration for Dion Lee’s SS16 New York Fashion Week runway.
The OIL collection is the young brand’s fourth offering and it explores the contrasting dualities of oil and water. Every piece captures a sense of liquidity and buoyancy by incorporating kinetic components in different weights and profiles.
Fabricated in 14k gold, featuring ruthenium-plated surfaces with black diamonds and natural sapphires, the aesthetic of the collection echoes the spectrum of colour found on an oil surface through reflected light.
