Melissa Kaye was born and raised in New York City. After years of working in finance as a quantitative strategist, Melissa decided to take a different direction and pursue a lifelong interest in jewelry. Given her mathematical background, Melissa finds inspiration in geometric and natural patterns. She incorporates these elements throughout her line, bringing a modern edge to classic shapes. Pieces are cleverly engineered to capture form and function, highlighted by many subtle and unexpected details. Melissa strives to create the go-to jewelry in a woman’s wardrobe. She believes there should be a “quiet sparkle” in everyday life, and designs truly wearable pieces while still reflecting luxury and sophistication.
