established in 2012,
Francesca Grosso has always been obsessed with hoops. The Brooklyn-based jewelry designer launched her line, Sorelle, (which means sister in Italian) in 2012 after working as a manager at Opening Ceremony. The designer takes her inspiration from the women in her life, with a focus on cool, reimagined takes on the hoop earring. With a background in accessories—growing up, her family owned a jewelry business called Francesca’s Jewelers in her Florida hometown—Grosso turned to jewelry as a creative outlet. Since launching her line, she has collaborated with fashion labels Sandy Liang and LRS.
