About the designer
emma&me® founder and designer, Melissa B. Sohn, has always had a love
of fashion and a drive to succeed. After graduating from college, Melissa returned to New York City
to attend law school. By 2000 Melissa was ready for graduation but not to practice law. Instead,
she wanted to start her own company: emma&me® was born.
Melissa was inspired to create a company that offered women beautiful
jewelry at prices that would not destroy their budgets. She was also motivated to set up the kind of
company that she would want to buy from if she were the customer. Accordingly, no sample goes to
production unless Melissa will wear it herself. She believes that her customers are entitled to the
highest level of satisfaction and did not see the marketplace responding to the needs of the consumer.
Melissa believes that jewelry has to look good, make you feel good and be
comfortable. One of Melissa's greatest rewards is knowing that she is not only creating beautiful
jewelry, but is also committed to giving back to the community. Accordingly, a portion of all
emma&me® proceeds are donated to charity. emma&me® also frequently donates its designs to raise
money for charities.
Melissa views fashion as a means of expression. She appreciates being
recognized by the fashion press. However, her greatest accomplishment has been to create a company
that is constantly evolving. Not only a company that she runs, but also one she is proud to work for
and would be proud to buy from.
