MICHELLE ROBYN JEWELLERY

ABOUT

Michelle Robyn's love for jewellery started at a young age. As a five-year-old, she sat in front of the TV making paper jewellery for anyone and everyone who was willing to wear it. It’s been a few years since then, and luckily she has managed to upgrade her materials. Since starting her business in February 2015, people have been wearing MRJ on their fingers, on their wrists, on their necks,

and "hopefully", says Michelle, "we’ve managed to creep into their hearts too."

Currently her designs are created in Durban-based studio:

The Commune, 1st Floor the Design Factory, 39 Station Drive, Durban

WHY I LOVE THEM

I have known Michelle since our school days at Marist Stella and she has always had a quiet but beautiful soul. I watched Mich develop her range and her minimal, refined style over time. Beyond the fact that I love her to bits, I am completely head over heels for all of her designs. It is rare for me not to like something Mich makes. Our taste is very similar in that we enjoy more classic, contemporary styles that lend themselves to trends.

I can't count the number of pieces I have purchased from Michelle as gifts for friends and family (90% for my sister who is her second biggest fan) and myself, or custom designs we have thought up together.

She helped Dave with my engagement ring design, set a beautiful sapphire gifted from my parents and of course made our wedding bands. 

 

Almost every time I visit her showroom or her Instagram post pops up in my feed I am met with some new and amazing piece that my little heart desires. Birthday's usually go along the lines of "Is there anything you would like from Michelle?"

Mich is such a kind, hard working artist that rarely takes a moment for herself. I support her not just because I love her pieces, or because she's my friend, but because I have absolutely loved working with her happy spirit on everything she has ever made for us. More importantly, we have never been disappointed!

FAVOURITE FINDS FROM THEIR LATEST COLLECTION

FOB NECKLACE

R1050

ON MY WISH LIST
yellow gold plated, 45cm chain

THE HISTORY OF THE FOB

For centuries prior to the World War I advent of the wristwatch, men carried their personal watches in waistcoat pockets. The short chains, attached for easy handling of the watch, became the center piece of the gentlemen’s ensemble. Fob-style was the definition of menswear chic for a good portion of the 19th century.

The T-bar was inserted into the button hole to secure the chain and watch as a safeguard.

The tradition of women wearing watch chains as necklaces originated when soldiers departed home for the battlefields of WWI, leaving pocket watches and chains behind with their wives. Women would wear these talismans around their necks keeping them safe and close to the heart.

 

I just love the history of this chain and I also think it's a classic style that will be around for centuries to come.

Now that I know the little history/love story I want one even more! I feel like it has to come from Dave though so that I have a soppy story attached to mine too. No need to go to war though thanks.

This necklace features an old fashioned traditional FOB pendant attached to a chain. The FOB is 35mm long.

Orders within South Africa will be ready within +/- 15 working days unless you are situated in an outlying area.

GIFT YO GURL BANGLE

R990

FOR YOUR BESTIE
yellow gold plated

The Gift Yo Gurl bangle is a dainty flat cuff bangle with a personalised hand stamped inscription using 1mm letter or number stamps.

 

I love the little personal messages you can request for these cuffs. Hand stamped makes them super special and made with love. It's the perfect gift for your Maid of Honor or Bridesmaid, or gifted to your bestie for her birthday. 

This is something I would love to get for my sister with a personal message or saying that means something personal to us. 

It's such an exceptional piece because it's so different to the normal "letter" customisations. I adore it and the cuff would be stunning even without the stamping.

 

Please note that the stamping is done by hand and therefore may have slight height differences and spacing between the different letters or numbers.


Orders within South Africa will be ready within +/- 15 working days unless you are situated in an outlying area.

RIBBON RING

R1600

GREAT TO STACK
9ct yellow gold

A dainty, loosely twisted band. Pretty on it's own or stacked with your other favourites.

If you are looking for a really stunning everyday ring I think this could be a great choice. It's simple and charming, something you can wear for years. I would definitely opt for a solid metal if I planned on wearing this every single day (see below).

Christmas is coming honey! Can you say YAY!

 

*Please be aware that Yellow or Rose Gold plating can wear off quickly on rings and therefore it is advisable to purchase 9ct Yellow, Rose or White Gold or Sterling Silver.

STARRY EYED NECKLACE

R900

DREAMY JEWELS
rose gold plated

This necklace features a collection of star, moon and cross charms attached to a dainty chain. It really is a dreamy little piece, perfect alone or layered with a couple of your favourite pendants. 

 

It comes with an adjustable length of 40cm and 45cm which is always amazing as you can change up the look depending on whether you are wearing other chains with it.

 

Michelle is always so clever. She has designed this so that the front of the charms are polished and the back of the charms are matte to allow for variation.

You can wear it the way you like it!

This reminds me of the polka necklace but I think I love this one a little more with all the different charms which create interest and make the Starry Eyed more fun.
