Janine de Dorigny
Custom Made Earrings
Janine de Doringy is a custom jewelry shop located in Toronto. Our studio specializes in offering our customers a collaborative jewellery design process that brings their aesthetic vision to life.
If you want earrings that are as unique as you are, you need to think outside the box — create something unique to your story.
When it comes to earrings, we know that individual taste can vary as widely as the styles of earrings that exist — which is why we take a synergetic approach to custom designs. Our customers have total design control, with our jewelry designer's insights and expertise. This helps them to create a custom piece that makes the perfect thoughtful gift to celebrate life's precious milestones.
This is one of the many reasons we love our creative work and why our pieces are among the top custom jewelry in Toronto. Our custom design earrings can be created with a wide variety of metals and stones to suit your taste. You can even add engravings to some designs.
Visit our studio and select from a wide range of ethically sourced metals and gemstones that spark your creativity — and we'll breathe life into your wearable art idea.
Where Can I Get Custom Earrings Made?
Janine de Dorigny's custom design earrings are hand-made, on-site in our downtown studio, which means your jewelry doesn't leave our shop until it comes home with you. Not only do we create bespoke women's jewelry, but we also create sophisticated and timeless men's custom jewelry in Toronto.
So, how does our process work?
Book a meeting with Sabrina Melendez, our owner and founder. She has been classically trained in the art of jewelry design in Switzerland and has travelled worldwide, honing her craft.
Don't forget to bring your inspiration and tell us your story about your unique piece. Together, we'll work out a sketch and get a feel for the style and inspiration you have in mind.
You can browse our selection of high-quality, ethically sourced materials and some fine recycled jewelry from Canada to build on your design. We have everything from white gold, yellow gold, and rose gold — all of which come in 14k, 18k and 22k.
Next, let's make your piece truly sparkle. You can choose your precious stones from sapphires, diamonds, spinels and many more.
Unlike other jewelry stores, our gemstones are untreated for a more brilliant appearance. Each gem has its traditional folklore and stylistic characteristics, which further adds interest and meaning to your piece.
Our custom services also allow you to further personalize your earrings with an engraving if you prefer. Depending on your piece, you can choose to have initials or even a memorable quote embossed on your jewelry for an extra touch of individuality.
Why Choose Janine de Dorigny?
Each unique piece of wearable art is artisanally-crafted with skill and passion.
Janine de Dorigny was founded by Sabrina A Melendez, to bring jewellery imbued with love and care to the world from her Toronto studio. After being raised in multiple countries by a multicultural family, Melendez wanted to pursue her passion for creative arts and honour her mother, aunt, grandmother and other ancestors by founding a jewellery line that reflected their values.
Values such as sustainability, integrity, and creating meaningful connections are the North Star that guides our brand. It's in every custom jewellery piece that leaves the Janine de Dorigny studio.
From the initial design discussion with the client to finalizing and packaging the finished item, the entire process is conducted with meticulous care and attention to detail. Melendez is passionate about sustainability and consideration when it comes to jewellery design. These beliefs are particularly evident during the collaborative process of custom jewellery creation at Janine de Dorigny.
