Not one for ostentatious, statement pieces? Stelliyah may just be your thing. Well known for quality jewellery crafted with traditional metalsmith techniques, Stelliyah’s pieces aren’t your usual glam pieces – but they are certainly no less interesting.

Each piece featured symbolises societal honour and strength – the Traveller’s Cross necklace, for example, is inspired by its origins as an heirloom piece, meant to signify the life of a nomad where one’s ashes are scattered across the four corners of the world.
