Melroso’s founder and curator, Colette Tebele, curates her jewelry selection from designers around the world. She takes inspiration from different cultures to provide a collection of jewelry that makes the wearer feel confident and sexy by accentuating their natural beauty. Among these curated pieces are designs we’ve recently added from popular jewelry designer, Melanie Auld. You may have heard of Melanie Auld as the brand she established, that holds her name, is becoming increasingly prominent in the fashion world. Here’s about her and why her pieces inspire us.
The Woman & The Brand
Born in Thunderbay, Ontario, Melanie Auld has grown up to be one of the hot, new designers in the jewelry scene. She launched her self-named brand in 2003 and has continued to grow ever since. When asked why she decided to name here jewelry brand after herself in an interview with Love & Pieces, she explained that it was simply because a few years down the road she didn’t want to be bored of the name. That and the brand and jewelry designs are personal to her and what’s more personal than her name?
At the age of 19, she originally went to London to study fashion but instead was drawn to jewelry and all the creative possibilities it offered. Now, she’s inspired by travel, fashion and everything else in life, including just that feeling you get when you're somewhere extraordinary. She uses that inspiration to create versatile and easy-to-wear jewelry. Jewelry that is meant to be layered, worn daily and lived in. After traveling around with her husband, they have now settled and call Vancouver home with their two children. Since then, Melanie Auld has been named one of Elle Canada’s “One to Watch” designers and we couldn’t agree more.
The Jewelry & Stones
Here at Melroso, we are in love with the cool, colorful and modern jewelry that comes from the Melanie Auld brand. The pieces are basic, classic pieces that are well-tailored, luxurious and extremely stylish. We find that quite a few of these jewelry pieces show that Melanie is drawn to stones; she’s always looking for ways to pair stones together in interesting ways and with different color combinations. The saturated colors of some of the pieces have us dreaming of far off exotic locations. Melanie Auld sources her stones from all over the world to find the stones with the best quality and integrity.
Melanie Auld’s inclusion of colorful semi-precious stones in a refined modern way have us loving this collection and all the different ways you can wear it. This jewelry brand is aimed at women that want jewelry that stands out but won’t take over. Her pieces are interesting and can be worn in countless different ways because the collections are created in such a way that they are meant to be worn together and mix-matched. Her advice to Melanie Auld fans in her interview with Moondance Jewelry was to not be afraid to experiment with colors, textures and what makes you comfortable.
So what’s next for Melanie Auld and her jewelry brand? She’s passionate about remind people to not forget that relationships and human connections are important in this day in age. She plans to keep expanding the brand and reaching for the stars. From her website, it’s Melanie Auld’s “mission to create killer jewels that women love!” And in her interview with ShopTheLoupe, she reminds us all that “Life is inspiring!” We love what she’s done with the Melanie Auld brand and are excited to be adding her versatile, luxurious jewelry pieces to our collection.
