Creating Modern Adornment for Beautiful Souls
I’m Niki, the founder and designer of Enji Studio Jewelry. We’re a sustainable luxury jewelry brand based in beautiful north county San Diego.
While San Diego has a bit of a reputation for being a relaxed beachy city (and a pretty green city too!), at Enji we’re on a mission to bring you meaningful, modern, ethical design that shows off your style, honors the journey of your life, and reflects your values. You are a the heart of why we do what do! And we craft each piece for you in our Carlsbad studio bringing new life to recycled gold and silver and using only FairTrade and ethically sourced diamonds and gemstones.
Whether it be helping create the perfect piece to say “I Do” with, celebrating accomplishments and milestones with our Fine collection, or just looking for the perfect piece to go with that stunning LBD, we want to be there for you and with you along the way!
Need help finding the perfect piece for your occasion?
About Our Jewelry
I could say our brand story started sometime in the past, that Enji was founded in 2014, or something like that, but really it’s a story about the future. We take steps toward positive change in our industry by practicing ethical sourcing and manufacturing and giving back to the local and global community we're a part of because it’s important. We create our pieces for everyday wear, because every day, we all keep putting one foot in front of the other, and taking steps to reach our goals. Our jewelry is designed to be forward thinking and to last so it can accompany you as you write your story and change the world.
Our brand purpose goes beyond making and selling jewelry. Enji is about modern, minimal design that is made ethically and sustainably and gives back to the community. As creators and consumers, our choices now have a global impact. This is why we consider how things are made to be important and this to be part of our responsibility as a business and global citizens. As a designer and jeweler, I only work with suppliers that share this view. This is why we make all of my pieces using only recycled gold and silver, ethically sourced and fairtrade stones, chains and findings that are made in the USA and Italy, and packaging and marketing materials made using recycled paper and clothing.
“I come from a family of immigrants and scientists and it impacts the way I design and view the world around me,” says Niki, founder and designer of Enji. “I see the contrasts and the differences in the places I’ve lived and traveled – how it’s all part of a larger whole – and I design like a scientist in that everything is an experiment.”
