Offering a fresh and contemporary take on classic pearl designs, Autore Moda, the little sister of famed AUTORE pearls, is making high-quality South Sea pearl jewellery accessible to a new audience. The result is chic and sophisticated pieces that bring a little bit of luxury to the every day, no matter the occasion.

Founder Ruby Autore opens up about bringing her idea to life, and some of the biggest pinch-me moments so far, which includes the brand’s biggest accomplishment to date — opening up their first Flagship store alongside one of her childhood best friends.

“I started working in the family business straight after leaving school and was really inspired and passionate about South Sea pearls. After some market research, I identified a gap in the market for South Sea pearl demi-fine jewellery, as there wasn’t really anyone doing anything in that space yet, so I saw an opportunity to develop my concept.”

“Celebrating the opening of my first flagship boutique in Double Bay with my family and friends, which was designed by Alex Morrison, my childhood best friend.”

“Not every day will be as productive as you would like it to be! Allow time for delays. Be flexible.”

“My favourite right now is probably the Emily Earrings. They are such a great piece which you can really wear from day to night, work to play — I love the versatility of them.”
