In the highly competitive world of international jewellery design, it can be hard to stand out from the crowd. But this is certainly not the case for Kenyan jewellery and accessory design entrepreneur, Adele Dejak, founder of the striking global luxury brand that carries her name.

What does your company do?

Adele Dejak the brand is an authentic jewellery and fashion accessories brand that offers a direct access to the true premium African experience.

What inspired you to start your company?

Passion made me do it. I am passionate about what I do, about what I create. I have always loved jewellery since I was young, it is my passion and life. Originally, I was designing and creating pieces for myself because I could not find designs that I connected with. Eventually, due to popular demand, I founded my Adele Dejak brand.

Why should anyone use your service or product?

My designs give women the opportunity to be daring, sophisticated and confident with our bold and delicate pieces. We are able to give our customers an authentic affordable luxury brand to connect with Africa through contemporary designs. Our pieces can be passed from generation to generation as they are uniquely handcrafted pieces made from a blend of traditional and modern materials. I am constantly evolving and drawing on the dynamic rich African heritage to create products which celebrate beauty and design on the continent, showcasing the African luxury movement.
