Melissa Joy Manning
Melissa Joy Manning has created a socially responsible fine jewelry brand featuring unique, modern designs influenced by her passion for travel, art and culture. The line encompasses multiple collections including one-of-a-kind pieces, signature designs and custom, non-traditional wedding jewelry.
Each piece is handmade to order, in the MJM California or New York studios, by skilled artisans using traditional, time-honored techniques. Manning’s design development is not only meticulous and detail oriented, but her production studio is also certified Green by the State of California.
As the co-chair of the CFDA Sustainability Committee, and as an advisory board member to Lexus/CFDA Fashion Positive and Nest, Melissa continues not only to push the perceptions of precious, but also those of manufacturing processes in the fashion and jewelry worlds. Melissa’s work can be found in over 300 accounts worldwide, and at her namesake boutiques located in Berkeley, CA, and Brooklyn, NY.
