W.Taranto was born from a love of making, with founder Wade captivated with jewellery making from a young age. Since, Wade’s work has evolved into a multi-faceted brand, complete with bespoke custom pieces and gemstone connections all around the world. As a trained jeweller and artist, Wade has an eye for detail, but also prides himself on his creative vision.
He’s designed and created for some of Australia’s most well-respected jewellers, honing his craft over the past 15 years. In that time, his work has been worn by some of Australia’s biggest names. Now, he’s launched his own namesake brand, bringing his vision to the world for the first time.
W.Taranto’s ethos is rooted in unique and ethical design. Every material used is sourced in an honest and humane way and can be traced back to its original source. With a focus on custom, heirloom pieces, the W.Taranto world is rooted in extending the realm of possibility by crafting personal, individualised pieces with a sustainable edge.
Wade possesses the expert skills required to craft jewellery of the highest quality — from his ready-to-wear store to his custom pieces, and specialises in creating one-of-a-kind jewellery with a design edge. With a focus on androgynous and timeless style, each piece has been thoughtfully designed for both aesthetic sensibility and true wearer comfort.
