Founded Year

Mission & Purpose

At Mejuri, we're redefining luxury. Feeling disconnected from the traditional industry narrative, CEO Noura Sakkijha leveraged her learnings as a third-generation jeweller to rethink the way we purchase jewelry—for ourselves. From that founding moment, we’ve been putting a modern spin on a legacy industry through high-quality craftsmanship, timeless design, meaningful stories and an authentic sense of community. “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.” - Noura Sakkijha, CEO OUR VISION A world in which everyone feels inspired to celebrate more than what we're told. To recognize the moments and memories we experience every day that matter most to us.
