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 had it right. But when her husband, John, was tired of his regular job, he came to disturb that peace. He was not satisfied with selling this and that locally and started the jewelry brand Melano together with Jeanne. The idea for the interchangeable piece of jewelry arose after a customer returned with a broken ring: The stone had broken off. Dramatic for most, of course, a source of inspiration for them! 

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

Melano's history has already been written. The jewelry brand has grown into an international phenomenon. Located in picturesque Maastricht, Melano is still an established name.

Why Melano?

You want to make your own choices, you are not a type, you are you. Melano understands that like no other and we've got your back. Combine our jewelry endlessly with different stones, rings, bracelets, pendants and necklaces.
