Mel Spivak and Billy Halpern

Melissa Spivak-Halpern        { Spee - Vack }

Mel was born with diamonds on her mind.  Growing up, Her Dad, Lorne Spivak owned a chain of retail jewellery stores, where she spent hours playing and learning about all things that sparkle.

She grew up knowing she wanted to work along side her dad in the family business (SK Jewellers), and she also wanted to embrace her artistic side, so by the time she enrolled in university, she had decided to study not only jewellery design and gemology, but she also acquired a degree in interior design as well.

After graduating, she worked with her dad learning the ins and outs of the jewellery industry, including repairs, manufacturing, buying and of course design.

Her focus is mainly on designing personal pieces for clients, as the lead engagement ring designer and specialist in the shop, as well as acting as the buyer and creating her own lifestyle pieces and collections that make high end jewellery easy to wear and versatile.

Her pieces have been featured across the media, from Cosmo and Slice TV to magazines such as Elegant Bride, Dolce Magazine, Jewellery Business Magazine and

Mel married her best friend and business-partner, Billy Halpern – who works as a creative director in the family business. Together, they explore the globe for the latest trends, attend various trade shows around the world and enjoy a variety of personal adventures, hand in hand.

When Mel isn’t designing the perfect piece, she enjoys travelling, fashion, art, and spending quality time with her family.

Shop Mel Spivak is the online destination for Mel's designs and a curated collection of all things bling.
