PROFILE

SARAH & SEBASTIAN is an independent jewellery studio by Sarah Munro and Robert Sebastian Grynkofki, designers who live and work in Sydney, Australia.

In the pursuit of conceptual design merged with innovative craftsmanship, they established their eponymous label in 2012, and today work alongside a diverse team with multidisciplinary talents.

The designer’s birthplaces, Australia and Germany, led to a collision of inspiration; the natural world with European architecture and art. These themes continue to form the basis on which design inspirations emerge, like the ocean, which is a driving force for the label’s social and environmental values. The co-founders have long championed local manufacturing and to this day operate a workshop in Australia with only a selection of products handcrafted overseas by trusted international manufacturers. Over the years they have developed a network of likeminded suppliers and operate a made-to-order model and repair workshop to reduce waste. 

SARAH & SEBASTIAN have stores in Sydney and Melbourne, collaborating with various leading architects to create unexpected spaces from unique perspectives. In a new chapter, the label introduced Services in 2021, with stores becoming destinations for piercing, Soldered bracelets and engagement appointments. 

Since its launch, SARAH & SEBASTIAN has been supported by publications including Vogue, Marie Claire, Harper’s Bazaar, GQ and Elle. Stockists worldwide include Net-a-Porter, Lane Crawford, Joyce and David Jones.

SARAH & SEBASTIAN has pledged to donate over a million dollars to ocean conservation within the next decade as part of their philanthropic initiative, The Xanthe Project.

The Xanthe Project supports four independent not-for-profit organisations including The Australian Marine Conservation Society, Ocean Impact Organisation, Take 3 for the Sea and the Coral Sea Foundation's Sea Women of the Great Barrier Reef program. Learn more here.

As of December 2022, together with our clients, we’re proud to have donated over $148,000 to Australian ocean conservation.
