My last stop on my Boston tour for my #JewelryRoadTrip project took us about 30 minutes outside of the city, to a town called North Andover. Here, a jewelry empire is taking shape and they’ve only been in business for a few years. Melanie Casey Fine Jewelry began with a sketchbook of designs and Melanie’s desire to work with her hands. Her whimsical, antique-inspired rings, necklaces, earrings and bracelets are just what every girl dreams of–and if the Instagram likes are any indication of success, she is blowing up! It has been great to watch the growth and finally seeing everything in person is the best part.
Melanie just recently opened her own studio/showroom, a space unitentionally ideal for a growing business, as she has plenty of room to grow. There are two sections that make up the space: the work room and the showroom. The work shop is where jewelers’ benches are lined up, a laser welder sits in all its glory, and computers are ready for emails and website updates. The afternoon that I visited, there were four jewelers (all women, yay) working their magic, creating the delicate jewels that will soon be found on their new, forever owners. It was like Santa’s workshop in there and you would think they have been a part of this production for several years–but alas, some have just started and Melanie is looking to add more bench jewelers to her team! I never knew this until recently, but you can actually follow @MakersofMelanieCasey on Instagram to see the behind-the-scenes of the studio life.
Changing gears–only a few steps away is the showroom–a definite juxtaposition from the work room, however equally as important. This enchanting space has been furished and decorated with antiques from Brimfield (only an hour and a half away) and displays made by Melanie’s dad. The showroom reflects the exact vibes the jewelry gives off, and I love that. The pastel-colored, circular ring boxes are all handmade right in studio and they will be coming soon to the website, available for purchase. To me, they look like macaroons in the best way possible. If you’re in the area, you can make an appointment to stop by and have access to all the jewelry so trying things on will be effective and help with decision making. There are also times where there are open showroom hours, so no appointment necessary! To find out when those happen, just follow Melanie Casey Jewelry on social media and/or sign up for their newsletter.
It’s no secret that the Melanie Casey Jewelry line is every bride-to-be’s wish list engagement ring. With ethereal styles and unique wedding band options, you can find your perfect ring for your big day. One trend that is major right now for brides is minimalistic engagement rings, and you will find lots of great examples of this from Melanie. Below are my top picks you can shop now and be on the lookout for some new, amazing designs coming soon–I got to see them in early production stages and they are so pretty (hint: butterfly)!
