A women-led ethical jewelry brand and manufacturing platform that brings together a modern aesthetic with global market access to artisan communities and jewelry designers in Kenya.
Matthew Harris of MATEO New York was born and raised in Montego Bay, Jamaica and upon completing his undergrad studies, I discovered his true passion in New York City – the art of Jewelry making. Matthew Harris is part of the community of black-owned jewelry designers that The Storied Life is excited to feature. Much of Mateo New York’s success is due to a continuous effort in making modern, relatable fine jewelry at an approachable price point.
The jewelry entrepreneur behind Mejuri is Noura Sakkijha who comes from three generations of Jordanian jewelers, designing fine jewelry is in Sakkijha’s blood. She used her savvy for engineering to ensure that the production of the lines was efficient and ethical and the jewelry affordable. Noura states, “I founded Mejuri because I saw a jewelry industry that was built for men gifting women and not women celebrating themselves. To me, the truest expression of Mejuri is mutual uplift: all of us supporting each other, and you, our community, feeling empowered to invest in yourself and, in turn, the community around you”.
Kristin & Kofi are a husband-and-wife team that launched their jewelry brand Third Crown to celebrate the merging of two forces coming together to form something new – a powerful pair. Each jewelry piece is defined by clean lines and an understated chic that, turns statement pieces into wardrobe-essentials. Since their debut, Third Crown has been rapidly growing in popularity, as they’ve already caught the attention of fashion icons Beyoncé and Solange Knowles. We are so inspired by the loving partnership of Kristin and Kofi and learning more about Third Crown. Supporting black-owned businesses and black designers is just one of our tenets at The Storied Life, a black girl podcast!
