M H Preston Designs in Newport, RI, was established in 1989 while Melanie was living in Australia.Inspired by the natural beauty of Australian gemstones, the business started out importing stones and creating one of kind designs to be sold at artisan shows.
Since then, Melanie has included gemstones from all over the world and has added lustrous cultured pearls to her collections. Each design is unique and ranges from a combination of many colors and textures to a simple elegant accent. Melanie uses only natural gemstones and pearls to create a timeless piece which enhances each individual’s natural complexion while accenting personality and lifestyle.
As in nature, no two pieces are exactly alike!
