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 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.
Jewellery that Inspires!
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 Sabrina'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.
