KHIRY - Jameel Mohammed founded Khiry in 2016 as an undergraduate studying political science at the University of Pennsylvania after being pointedly told by the ceo of a global luxury goods company that true luxury brands could only emerge from Paris and Milan given the supposedly unique histories of artisanship and cultural heritage existing in Europe. Khiry was founded to channel the beauty, art, heritage and culture of the African diaspora into modern, luxurious vermeil jewelry, with the ultimate goal of establishing a complete fashion house.
