Zuri Perle LLC offers discerning customers, Quality, Timeless, hand crafted jewelry. Our unique jewelry is made using quality semi-precious gemstones and precious/non precious metals. All our pieces are handcrafted in our studio in West Plains, Missouri.
Zuri Perle LLC was established by Nigerian born designer Atinuke Adeleke. Atinuke Adeleke is a Jewelry Designer with an undergraduate and masters degree in Law. She took her first jewelry making class from local artisans in Nigeria 9 years ago and fell in love with the process of handcrafting wearable artisan pieces. She continues to build on that foundation and is currently enrolled at Kansas University taking metalsmithing and CAD classes. She is also an alumni of the Gemological Institute of America (GIA)
Wife and Mother to two amazing boys. After moving to the United States to be with her husband, she was unable to find jewelry pieces to compliment the Nigerian traditional outfits she loved to wear. Major retail stores did not carry the bold, colorful pieces similar to what she grew up wearing in her home country.
She created the brand Zuri Perle to cater to African brides looking for traditional African Jewelry to wear for their traditional wedding here in the United States. She has since expanded the brand to incorporate a balance of her Nigerian traditional aesthetic and western experience.
At Zuri Perle our aim is to create jewelry pieces that are a far cry from the stereotypical cowry, bones, horn, jewelry pieces that are associated with the African continent and showcase another side of the continent that is enamored with color, gemstones, and precious metals.
Our pieces have been seen on Fox 4, Say Yes to the Dress, CNN Africa, Bead Style Magazine (US) and a couple of local publications in her home country Nigeria.
The materials used in producing our pieces are sourced locally and our jewelry is also lovingly crafted here in the United States.
Our mission is to continue providing our clients with Bold, Quality, Timeless Jewelry pieces that they will proudly wear for years to come. We strive to exceed our client expectations in quality and customer service and we look forward to serving you.
