Janine de Dorigny specializes in custom jewellery creations that are crafted with love and vision. We provide an array of jewellery for both men and women that can be worn every day or selected specifically for a special occasion. Our bridal collection includes engagement rings and wedding bands, as well as a compilation of necklaces and earrings to complement the bride and her wedding party.
As purveyors of the most exclusive materials, we also offer high-quality stand-alone gemstones for collectors and provide a full custom jewellery creation service for clients wishing to own a personally designed and selected piece. We also provide a selection of gentlemen's wedding bands, for grooms who are looking for a truly unique piece to mark the day.
About Janine de Dorigny
Janine de Dorigny was founded in 2011 by jewellery designer Sabrina A Melendez. The child of Swiss and Peruvian parents, Melendez grew up in over 8 countries and studied in Miami and NYC. After university, Melendez pursued her creative ambitions during a four-year apprenticeship in high jewellery fabrication before ending up in the vibrant, creative scene of downtown Toronto.
Melendez started Janine de Dorigny due to her desire to create stunning pieces that empower the wearer and connect them to the feelings of love and passion that went into the item's creation. Each piece is designed and hand-crafted in a workshop in Toronto, ensuring that the jewellery is rooted in the vibrant city that first gave birth to the company.
The brand's name itself originates from Melendez's family and represents a focus on personal resilience and love, which was passed down through the generations. Janine is Melendez's grandmother -- an elegant woman who persevered through hardship and showed her descendants how to thrive. Dorigny is the name of the town in Switzerland where Melendez's mother and aunt were raised. The name is a constant reminder of the generations of women who followed their hearts and supported one another, just as the Janine de Dorigny brand strives to do with each original jewellery piece.
