ABOUT THE DESIGNER
Jewelry designer Melissa Fego grew up in an artistic family in the New York area. Both of her Italian grandmothers as beaders and seamstresses, and her mother – an artisan herself, helped shape and influence Melissa’s love of working with her hands from an early age to create one-of-a-kind necklace and bracelets.
Although she spent years making jewelry in her spare time as a hobby, Melissa decided to pursue a career in business and finance. After attaining her M.B.A., she has spent more than a decade working in finance for an educational publishing company in Manhattan. While wearing one of her own creations to a party in the city a few years ago, Melissa was besieged by requests. Pulled to pursue her true passion and harness her creative talents, Melissa launched Fego Gioielli. The name of the company holds special significance: ‘Gioielli’ means jewelry in Italian, a nod to Melissa’s Italian heritage and creative roots.
The Fego Gioielli line offers uniquely designed statement necklaces, bracelets and earrings. Each piece is carefully handcrafted, using only the finest rare gemstones and high quality materials, sourced from places such as Italy and India. The large scale necklaces boast effervescent gems, featuring Dentritic or Peruvian Opals, Carnelians and Chrysophase paired with 18kt Vermeil or Sterling Silver. Custom designs are available upon request.
From the Hamptons to Hollywood, people have become enamored of Fego Gioielli Jewelry, quickly making it a must have for their collections. Visit www.fegogioielli.com for more information.
