At Isla Found, we never cease to be inspired by the varying design aesthetics found across the globe and relish the opportunity each year to pursue this design exploration through our jewelry collections. This year, we’ve also taken a little trip back in time to the sumptuous 19th century Etruscan Revival era, which emerged following the discovery of ancient jewelry in tombs outside of Rome.
We have delighted in approaching the neoclassical designs of this revival era jewelry with our west-coast minimalist style to create a collection that reflects Isla Found’s subtle elegance.
