Mejuri Inc.

Mejuri is the category-defining fine jewelry brand designing high-quality pieces you can wear every day. Feeling disconnected from an industry that typically markets to men, co-founder and CEO Noura Sakkijha leveraged her learnings as a third-generation jeweler in 2015 to rethink the way women purchase jewelry – for themselves. In only six years and with a team of over 75% women, Mejuri has shipped over one million orders and opened six retail stores across North America, all while introducing new products weekly. As part of Noura’s original vision to empower women to invest in themselves, the brand launched the Mejuri Empowerment Fund which supports higher education for underrepresented women and non-binary individuals.
