Sophie Bille Brahe is an eponymous fine jewellery label founded in 2011 and based in Copenhagen. The designer and founder had wanted to become a goldsmith from a very young age, and after creating striking one-off pieces for celebrities and designers- including Madonna- Sophie Bille Brahe was encouraged to launch her own brand. Her great-great-great grandfather was Tycho Brahe, the famous astronomer who founded the Cassiopeia constellation. This ancestral link has led Sophie Bille Brahe to have her own passion for astronomy, and so many of her designs are inspired by this fascinating subject.
Merging a love for the stars with the classic clean-lined spirit of Scandinavia, Sophie Bille Brahe produces bold yet minimalist jewellery to be treasured and worn everyday. Collections are elegant and timeless with an avant-garde appeal, produced by hand using age-honoured, traditional techniques. Crafted to the highest standards, Sophie Bille Brahe uses white and yellow gold, met with diamonds and pearls for an opulent and exquisite finish. The signature Croissant de Lune earrings represent the brand’s aesthetic perfectly, featuring a row of graduating diamonds which appear striking yet delicate and can be worn for any occasion. Other designs follow the same approach, seen in dainty tennis bracelets with sparkling diamonds across the whole band, and stunning stacking rings featuring small diamonds encircling the main gemstone. Pearl studs are a timeless essential, while statement styles feature cascading pearls of varying sizes, or chain-link designs adorned with diamonds. From simple huggies and pendants to dramatic ear cuffs and earrings, Sophie Bille Brahe is always decadent and refined.
Collections from Sophie Bille Brahe are available online, through the label’s site and through Net-a-Porter, Matches Fashion and Farfetch.
