BESPOKE

NAKIIT celebrates individuality and aims to inspire by making jewellery that is just for you. From necklaces to bracelets, engagement rings to anniversary gifts, milestone birthdays and more, it's an honour to create bespoke jewellery for the special occasions life has to offer.

Driven by a passion for detail and organization, NAKIIT provides unique and simplistic designs so the jewellery you dream of, can be a reality. NAKIIT is dedicated to facilitating an open experience when working on bespoke jewellery pieces, providing information on the process, suitable budget, time frame, materials, and limitations before starting a project. NAKIIT aims to inform clients about technical aspects to consider in the craftsmanship of jewellery making, so your custom piece can be enjoyed now and for years to come.

NAKIIT understands how important the process of creating a bespoke jewellery piece is, which is why throughout the journey from consultation to completion, your main point of contact is Melina herself. Melina enjoys connecting with clients and listening to each individual story they bring when requesting a custom piece.

With formal training in Fine Arts, experience as a Graphic Designer, and technical training in Jewellery & Metalsmithing, Melina uses all the creative tools in her tool belt when working closely with clients towards their bespoke jewellery piece.

THE PROCESS

Consulting

Start by filling the form out below. This will give Melina a starting point for your free consultation (via phone call or video chat). During your consultation, you and Melina will discuss your style, any themes or concepts you enjoy, your budget, metal and gemstone preferences, and size specifications (ring size, chain length, etc.). Feel free to share images at this stage.

Sketching

To begin your custom design journey, a $100 design deposit is required. After your deposit is received, Melina will provide a variety of 3-5 design directions for you to choose from based on your consultation. From here, you can pick which direction is your favourite and if there are elements you'd like to include/remove. Estimates are available at this time.

Modelling

Some designs will require a bit more detail. In this case, your piece will be 3D rendered (for precise settings or symmetrical designs) or carved in wax (for natural or organic looking designs). Once a 3D rendering or wax model is approved, an exact quote can be provided. At this point, a 50% deposit is required to begin the creation of your bespoke piece.

Finalizing

Your bespoke jewellery piece will then be crafted with much detail and care. Along the way, Melina will provide updates as needed. Once your jewellery piece is complete, you'll receive a photo, digital Care Booklet, and final invoice in which the remaining 50% is due. Your bespoke jewellery will be carefully packaged and ready for you to enjoy!

TESTIMONIALS

“Melina was an absolute joy to work with for my custom bridal jewellery set and bridesmaid gifts. She met with me ahead of time to chat through the kinds of pieces I was interested in, as well as noted the kind of design and metals that would work for my price range. After sending her a couple photos of my gown, she provides an incredible selection of options that made it VERY hard to choose the final option, as they were all so lovely. I also had a minor design suggestion and request to have extra space added for my bridesmaid’s bracelets, which she incorporated flawlessly. Lastly, the final products were STUNNING and were clearly made by someone who loves their craft and is a true artist. I highly recommend Melina to bring your custom jewellery dreams to life.”

“I came to Melina after obsessing over her Instagram page for far too long. She welcomed my request for a custom pair of timeless, earthy, everyday hoops with open arms and was so thoughtful, diligent, and informative throughout the entire process. From her first communication about what I could expect from her process, to the digitized mock-ups, to the final piece, her professionalism and insane talent was such a pleasure to work with. Thank you Melina!"

"My partner and I had the great pleasure of working with Melina for our custom wedding bands. Melina made our ideas come to life. We absolutely ADORE our wedding bands! Melina is extremely organized, knowledgeable and an all-around talented artist. She gave us advice on materials and gems that best suited our lifestyle. We explained our vision and she went beyond our expectations. It is obvious that Melina is a passionate artist with and beyond jewellery, which we think is so special about her. She finds inspiration through many mediums, resulting in unique and timeless pieces."

- Natasha + Tyler S. | Custom Wedding Bands

 

"Melina is a professional. Her creativeness, communication and enthusiasm made the experience of creating two custom rings (engagement ring and wedding band) an absolute pleasure. Both rings are beautiful and fit our personalities and fingers perfectly. Melina was always prompt with her correspondence and really made me feel part of the whole experience. Couldn't have asked for a better product. She also has an incredible personality. I have told all my friends who are looking to get custom jewellery to go to her first!"

- Nick R. | Custom Wedding Band

 

"I am so happy to be the recipient of a custom made NAKIIT engagement ring!! My partner had a sense of what I like and he came to Melina with a rough idea. The ring is beautifully crafted and I literally just stare at my hand some times when it captures the light! After getting engaged I looked through dozens of emails between my partner and Melina collaborating on the ring - Melina listened to my partner but gave incredible advice and options to help pick stones etc. My partner then decided to get a custom band from NAKIIT and I got to follow along the process as him and Melina shared many chats designing a very special ring inspired by my partner's love of the mountains. All to say, Melina is HIGHLY skilled, creative, and dedicated. Beyond pure talent, she is an absolute delight - warm, friendly, collaborative and patient. Couldn't recommend NAKIIT more!"

- Tory B. | Custom Engagement Ring

 

"I ordered the semi-circle reticulation band as my "everyday wear" wedding ring, and I absolutely love it! Melina is so fun to work with - she's quick to respond to messages and is super detail-oriented. I couldn't decide between silver and gold so she created a 3D imaging of both elements, which was super helpful. Melina's also SO passionate about the work she does so you know she's going to do a stellar job, and did she ever! Will definitely be ordering another piece sometime soon."

- Kristann D. | Made-to-order Ring

 

"I had my arm band for my wedding made by NAKIIT. I had a super vague idea in my head of what I wanted but couldn't find any pictures to describe what I was wanting. I gave Melina a few descriptors and she made an arm band that was exactly what I didn't know I was dreaming about all along! The elegant, hand-made piece was such a special way top off my wedding accessories. Creative, personal, beautiful, and unique! Can't wait to get my next piece!"
