Janine de Dorigny

Custom Made Necklaces

At Janine de Dorigny, our custom made necklaces are truly unique and as distinct as their wearer.

Janine de Dorigny’s necklaces are designed and created by Sabrina Melendez in collaboration with you, to be everything that you want them to be. From initial ideas and early sketches through to the finished product, there is an artistic process that you will always be involved in. The final custom made necklace will be a physical representation of your thoughts, feelings and your unique story. A piece to treasure forever.

Choose from a wide range of materials, techniques, precious metals and stones to create the necklace you've dreamed of. We can create a custom-made necklace for her, a custom-made necklace for him or custom-matching necklaces for a romantic couple, best friends or parent and child. Materials available include gold, silver, wood and varied stones including sapphire, topaz, moonstone and spinel -- to name a few.

Custom Necklaces

Custom necklaces are a wonderful option for those that want their jewellery to reflect their personalities and preferences, from stunningly elegant couture jewellery or a custom choker necklace to bridal jewellery for the most special day.

Our custom design process allows you to create something that is tailored to a specific occasion (but that will last far beyond it). Many custom necklaces become family heirlooms, passed down through generations and treasured through time.

Precious stones used in Janine de Dorigny’s custom necklaces are left untreated. Whilst most sellers will use treated stones, when left untreated we find they have the most stunning colour and clarity. Involved in every step of the process, you will see how the vision in your head is brought to life through Sabrina Melendez's expert craftsmanship.

Custom Necklaces For Him

A custom made necklace for him, whether it's designed by him or given as a surprise gift, will surely make its mark.

Designed and created by Janine de Dorigny, a custom men's necklace can be as unique as the man that is going to wear it.

Typically men opt for white gold, silver and other similar precious metals, often with squared edges and varied textures to bring the piece to life. Where they're used, stones are often dark in colour -- such as black spinel or green sapphire.

In many pieces of men's jewelry, dark woods play important parts. These can include African blackwood, mahogany or tulipwood. We can also provide inspiration with examples of existing pieces of custom men's jewelry. We can also work with you, from initial sketches to the assembly and setting of the final piece.

Men can also choose custom matching necklaces, for a visual connection to a loved one -- such as a romantic partner or relative.

Crafted With Love

A dedicated artist with years of experience, Sabrina named Janine de Dorigny after her beloved grandmother and the place that her family grew up. This is a story built on love and companionship -- and it's a story that is shared in every piece of custom jewelry.

Sabrina collaborates from initial sketches to the final product, allowing you to design jewellery that truly represents your own incredible story.

Each custom necklace, whether it is a custom necklace made for her or a unique men's piece, can be created using a selection of precious stones and materials -- as well as Sabrina's specialist techniques.

Sabrina puts her heart and soul into every piece, just as her clients and customers do. Each piece of jewelry is a work of art, crafted with love and care.
