Our Story

At Rock Paper Roses we believe in the transformative power of jewellery. Have you noticed how a pair of jeans and a sweatshirt go from ordinary to something really special when you add in a statement necklace or pair of hoops?

Female Business Owner
Hi, I’m Riyaza, the founder and creative vision behind Rock Paper Roses. We are a female led, family owned online jewellery business based in Surrey in the UK. My professional background is in media sales and PR. I've been lucky enough to work on some really great brands including Cosmopolitan Magazine and the Sunday Times Travel Magazine.
It was my love of jewellery and accessorising that led me to start Rock Paper Roses. I've been collecting fashion jewellery since I was a teenager. More recently I'd look at high fashion jewellery on catwalks and high end brands and wonder "how can you wear that in real life situations, like on the school run or in the office?" 
So in the Spring of 2016 I set out to start my own jewellery line. I reached out to suppliers who worked with jewellery factories and designers and put together a small collection of four designs. Today I'm proud to say we have over 40 jewellery designs.
Female Small Business Owner
Our style ethos reflects a minimal fashion style with statement or dainty jewellery designs. That means I take a trend such as the statement earring, and look for designs that are understated yet still pop with glamour!
I base our jewellery designs on jewellery shapes and styles that are trending in  seasonal fashion collections. I also look to the high street and social media for style inspiration, so our jewellery collections reflect what is current.
These days I love to throw on a pair of our gold statement earrings. Whether I’m out and about or working from home, I’m never without my fabulous earrings! I also love layering our delicate necklaces and pendants- they look stylish and on-trend but never over crowd my look.
