Our Story

vinny and charles founders
Vinny & Charles - we are a husband and wife run jewellery business that is passionate about making totally unique and timeless fine jewellery pieces. Using high quality materials and gemstones, set in one-of-a-kind designs, Vinny & Charles is dedicated to making luxury jewellery accessible and ethical.

We make contemporary fashion pieces, as well as nature inspired, unique and alternative engagement and wedding jewellery. We also love making use of a variety of colourful gemstones in our pieces.  

All of our designs are created in the Vinny & Charles workshop in Perth, Western Australia, but we cater to customers all over the world. We craft all of our pieces to completion, using top materials and quality craftsmanship.

To us, materials matter - so you won’t find any plated base metals, gold fills or cheap imitations here. We use only solid gold and silver, and high quality, conflict-free diamonds, to make jewellery that is unique in design, and built to last.

About Vinny & Charles

Vinny & Charles was born out of a shared passion for creating beautiful, handcrafted jewellery that is unique, personal and suited to those who are independent, creative, adventurous, and appreciate quality. This passion is shared by South African husband and wife team, Chris and Melody, who combined forces in 2010, working on Chris’ jewellery business in South Africa. They went on to open another jewellery business together in 2016 after they moved to Australia, and Vinny & Charles grew out of this journey, transforming into a brand that symbolises Melody and Chris as individuals and as a couple.

Melody has a background in information management, but has been a small business owner since 2008, owning and managing businesses in the travel, photography and jewellery industries. Chris, who has been in the jewellery industry for over 15 years and is qualified in jewellery design and manufacture, also still runs his own jewellery business, specialising in art jewellery and luxury lifestyle products.

Together, as Vinny & Charles, they are committed to creating gorgeous, real and unique wedding and engagement rings, as well as contemporary fashion jewellery , making luxury affordable for the everyday woman.

Our Studio Workshop

Every single Vinny & Charles piece is crafted and hand finished in our studio workshop in Perth, Western Australia. This gives us full control over the manufacturing process to ensure each and every piece of jewellery we produce meets the highest quality standards. 

All of our pieces are made with great care and love, and we believe it is this care and attention to detail during the manufacturing process that ensures your jewellery will stand the test of time. 

In our workshop, we only use high quality materials, like solid gold, and diamonds that are sourced through highly reputable and conflict-free sources that follow the Kimberley Process (KP). All of our pieces are made according to industry standards, with the metal type on the hallmark (9/14/18). Our first priority is quality, and we are committed to exceptional craftsmanship and ethical practices. 

Our Values




All of our pieces are made in our studio in Western Australia, where we carefully execute each design from start to finish, ensuring that every item is made to the highest standard of quality. We believe that our designs are unique and one-of-a-kind. We love creating nature inspired and gemstone jewellery that you reflects the individuality of our beautiful customers. You should always know what you're paying for, and with Vinny & Charles jewellery designs, you always know that you are getting high quality metals, ethical gemstones and expert craftmanship. 

Ethical Luxury

 Accessible Luxury

We believe that being ethical in the jewellery industry is not a luxury, but that luxury can be ethical. And that is why we only source diamonds from highly reputable, conflict-free sources who follow the Kimberly process. At Vinny & Charles, we are committed to creating beautiful, hand crafted, fine jewellery at affordable prices. By cutting out the middle man and selling direct to you, our customers, we make luxury accessible and everyday.
