Debuting Now: Melissa Joy Manning’s Gypsy Jewelry Collection



Melissa Joy Manning’s new Gypsy collection takes inspiration—as the name suggests—from Romany tribes, or tzigane.

The name seems fitting, too, considering that Manning bounces between two offices—one in New York City and another in Berkley, Calif.—making her something of a gypsy herself.

Gypsy comprises 74 SKUs in recycled sterling silver and 14k gold with emeralds, opals, and agates and is now shipping to the trade. The starting retail price in the collection is $110.

“The Gypsy collection brings a nomadic journey of stones, reclaimed charms, and amulets together into a modern collection that reflects the ancient heritage of Bohemia,” Manning tells JCK. “The deep, rich color palette of emeralds, opals, and agates combined with vintage coins, naturally shed antlers, and antique medallions evoke the cross-cultural inspirations of tzigane wanderlust tribes.”

Buy-in range varies widely: It’s $2,000 for domestic brick-and-mortar outfits, $5,000 for international stores, and $10,000 for all e-commerce vendors.
