melanie van dooren




Melanie Van Dooren is a small-scale made-to-measure jewellery brand with a very personal approach. In order to put quality over quantity and to provide the best possible serivce, I can only accept a limited amount of made-to-measure & upcycling projects, for which it is important to book an appointment. Next to these projects, you can find a limited ‘Inscription’ collection online, for which it is not nessecary to schedule an appoinment. You can place your order easily through the webshop.


During your appointment, we will discuss designs, materials, prices, measurements etc. We start from different protoypes available in the atelier, which we can adjust according to your wishes. It is important that the concept you have in mind matches the style of the brand. I don’t copy other designer’s work. Made-to-measure projects start at 250 euros.


Sometimes it is possible to create something new out of old gold, but not always. Therefore, we ask you to upload a picture of your existing jewel and to describe what you want to make out of it (see booking below). That way, we might already tell you up front whether what you had in mind is possible or not. We do not buy old gold.


You need to calculate 2 to 3 months for made-to-measure and upcycling projects & 1 month for orders placed through the webshop - except when the product info states otherwise. For weddings, it is desirable to book maximum 6 months and minimum 3 months up front. You will receive an e-mail when your jewel is ready. Please book a ‘Fast Lane’-appointment for pick-up or fitting below, after you’ve received the e-mail.


We only repair pieces bought at Melanie Van Dooren.


For all items available on the webshop, please select the mandatory fields and the price will appear next to the product. For made-to-measure projects, prices start at 250 euros and will vary according to your wishes. Prices depend on your choice of material, choice of possible gems, the design, etc.


It is possible to ship your tailor-made jewel within Belgium at own risk. Your parcel will be shipped highly secured at a cost of 12 euros. However, keep in mind that this jewel is specially made for you, there does not exist an exact copy. If your parcel gets lost during shipping, Melanie Van Dooren cannot be held responsible and the whole process will have to be repeated if you desire so.
