A Bay Area native, Melissa Joy Manning conscious collection of fine jewelry is designed to be treasured and to last. Using responsibly sourced precious metals and stones wherever available, we are committed to the creation of exquisite products through cutting-edge environmental and socially responsible business practices. We seek to redefine what 'precious' means and to create heirloom pieces that are unique to the wearer, instead of contributing to a culture of disposable fashion. We are inspired by the beauty and shape of her organic, raw materials, resulting in an earthy, edgy look. Manning has said that "[her] jewelry is not an accessory, but an expression”—she believes that all jewelry can evoke emotion and can mean something different to everyone that wears her pieces.
