Jewellery tempered by art.
Multi-award winner Gina Melosi launched her label in 2011 with the directional debut jewellery collection //SHATTERED fragments//. It won the acclaim of both trade and fashion press and secured the eponymous Selfridges as a stockist. The sharp, yet organic aesthetic can be seen on artists as diverse as Cara Delevingne, Amandla Stenberg, and Zinnia Kumar.
The Texas born jeweller trained at London’s Sir John Cass Faculty of Art, Architecture and Design. Gina’s background in Fine Art Photography, Studio Art, and Classical Music informs her conceptual, yet organic designs. She is inspired by the broken, overlooked, and abandoned, giving ready-made found objects new life in recycled metals and ethically sourced stones.
Her designs have launched at Paris, London, and Milan fashion weeks, in addition to shows in the Middle East (as part of the Best of British Jewellery at Jewellery Arabia), the Netherlands, and the United States. Recent press includes ELLE and L'Officiel.
Ethics meets design.
it's important to us to be mindful of what we put out there in the world. From its birth, the gina melosi label has combined ethical sourcing and production with timeless, sharp design. all collections are lost-wax cast and handmade in ecosilver, recycled bronze, or recycled pinksilver (which is a super special mix of silver and copper). our stones come from ethical sources. if you have any questions at all regarding the materials or transparency of our designs, please don't hesitate to contact us.

As an artist and jeweller, gina is fascinated by social behaviours and expressions: private and public, individual and group, internal and external. she creates narratives about what is not said - the pauses, gestures, and subconscious. she tries to show visually what it seems we cannot always express in words. "I am aroused by the broken, overlooked, and abandoned."
Style & Quality
we believe the two go hand-in-hand. whilst we have made several collections, we do not believe that a piece should only be worn for a season and then discarded. we give a lot of care to the ideas, materials, alchemy, and meaning behind each piece and collection and hope that they will be worn for a long time to come. we only make pieces we believe in wholeheartedly; we hope you agree.
each piece undergoes many stages of small-batch production. each master object is designed and made by gina. a mould is made from each master and one of our casters produces multiples of these in recycled metals. from there, a lot of clean up and extra work must happen to bring this handmade piece to market. each piece is finished at our studio in shoreditch, east london.
