Impeccable craftsmanship combined with elegant design is the foundation of jeweller Melanie Ihnen’s range of exquisite contemporary jewellery.  Ihnen handcrafts her pieces at her Sydney CBD studio which showcases signature works combining precious gems and metals, with the occasional touch of difference through materials such as Monel and porcelain.

Complementary to this minimalist aesthetic is a carefully edited selection of jewellery from established and emerging Australian jewellers. Ihnen believes it is fundamental to support Australian artists for our unique Australian identity in the arts to flourish.

‘We have innovative makers in Australia. Being located in Sydney’s CBD affords me the opportunity to present our originality to the wider international community as well as our ongoing loyal clientele in Australia. I strive to inspire people to be as passionate about contemporary Australian jewellery design as I am.’

Ihnen Atelier Jewellery specialises in beautifully crafted limited edition runs,  bespoke commissions and engagement, wedding and commitment rings.
