The story of Melano

It all started in a cozy village center in the south of the Netherlands. A cozy little shop at home with gifts, interior and jewelry. Jeanne Pepels did well. But when her husband, John, was tired of his permanent job, he came to disturb that peace. He was not satisfied with the local sale of ditjes and datjes and started the jewelry brand Melano together with Jeanne. The idea for the exchangeable piece of jewelry came about after a customer came back with a broken ring: The stone was broken. Dramatic for most of them, for them a source of inspiration!

The newly started company quickly took over the entire shop floor, first for sale, later for office space. After that, even their poor three children had to watch how their bedrooms were slowly taken over by desks, printers, computers and the warehouse.

The history of Melano has already been written. The jewelry brand has become an international phenomenon.
