OUR STORY

Temple of the Sun Jewellery draws on a deep appreciation for both ancient European symbology and contemporary design to craft styles that are at once desirable, timeless and unique.

The Australian brand has inspired followers since 2014 when creative couple Yonna Derofe and Darren Gallant launched their collaborative business built on a love of adventure and beautiful things.

Yonna was raised in Istanbul and the exotic city's rich cultural influences weave through her designs, blending effortlessly with more contemporary
motifs inspired by art, nature and handcraft. The designs are brought to life using sustainably sourced sterling silver and 2.5 micron 18k gold plating.

 Each piece is hand finished with high quality polished, tumbled and soft-brushed textures to reveal an aesthetic that is as stunning to the eye as it is a pure pleasure to wear.

Temple of the Sun is based in Byron Bay; a vibrant cultural hub on Australia's most easterly point, and the brand makes its mark in the visual space with campaigns featuring the jewellery on the lush landscapes of beautiful local beaches.

The brand's production partners are certified for their social and environmental responsibility and Temple of the Sun is constantly reviewing and evolving its practices to ensure these align with their vision of a truly sustainable business.

Temple of the Sun can be discovered in a selection of Australian fashion and lifestyle boutiques and online retailers.
