About Mejuri:  

Mejuri is the category-defining fine jewelry brand designing pieces to elevate your every day. Feeling disconnected from the narrative fine jewelry is an occasional purchase typically marketed to men, Co-founder and CEO Noura Sakkijha leveraged her learnings as a third-generation jeweler to launch the brand in 2015: resulting in redefining the way women think of and purchase fine jewelry – for themselves. The company pioneered the ‘drop’ model in the fine jewelry industry and refreshes its collections weekly. Mejuri’s success is inextricably linked to the brand’s highly engaged community, including over one million Instagram followers. The brand has sole 2.8M pieces of jewelry since inception and is worn by celebrities such as Selena Gomez, Lizzo, Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande, Oprah, Bella Hadid, Emily Blunt and Margot Robbie. In 2020, the brand launched The Mejuri Empowerment Fund in support of higher education for underrepresented women and non-binary individuals. To learn more about Mejuri, please visit:
