ABOUT ENJI JEWELRY
Love means taking action
I BELIEVE JEWELRY CAN BE A POSITIVE
FORCE IN THE WORLD
Hey I’m Niki
Even as a five year old, I had a talent for finding the most beautiful jewelry in the store. As I grew up my passion for luxury design and fashion only grew and I even found myself studying silversmithing and goldsmithing, learning how all the beautiful pieces I looked at in amazement as a kid were artfully and skillfully crafted. My passion for fair fashion and sustainability however was born from the tragic news of the Rana Plaza factory collapse in 2013. It shocked me to learn what the true cost of those clothes were and caused me to think about where my clothes that I loved so much came from and who made them under what conditions. This event really opened my eyes to larger issues within fashion and jewelry and I decided that I didn’t want to contribute to the problem. It’s why I’m passionate about helping create a more transparent and compassionate jewelry industry.
While my journey through the world of ethical and sustainable fashion and jewelry was not an overnight one (and it’s a journey I’m still on and always learning more about), by the time I founded Enji at the end of 2014, I built the brand in connection to these values I had as a lover of fashion and jewelry. We’re all connected. This is why I built my business around modern luxury design and traceable, responsible sourcing to create beautiful pieces you can feel proud to wear. Because I believe jewelry can be a positive force in the world, I also volunteer for organizations in and out of the industry such as Ethical Metalsmiths, the Emerging Jewelry Leadership Council, and the Alliance for HOPE.
