In his jewelry designs for his brand Khiry, Jameel Mohammed challenges Eurocentric notions of luxury and high fashion by employing the principles of Afrofuturism—the intersection of African diaspora culture with technology. “It’s a means of reexamining my own history and culture, and finding beauty with myself and my people,” says Mohammed, who grew up in Chicago and was encouraged by his parents to explore his African ancestral history. He channels these stories and motifs into his sleek, minimal designs, such as these Jug Drop Earrings, which are inspired by the shapes of water jugs and calf skin—”unspillable life” according to Mohammed. Intended for everyday wear and made in New York City from polished sterling silver and gold vermeil, the earrings measure 1.5"l each.

Khiry by Jameel Mohammed
Khiry by Jameel Mohammed

Founded in 2016 by designer Jameel Mohammed, Khiry is a NYC-based Afrofuturist luxury jewelry brand. During a lecture in Japan, as part of his political science studies at the University of Pennsylvania, he was told that “luxury brands only come out of Paris and Milan.” The comments infuriated Mohammed because they suggested that a Black aesthetic could not be considered “high fashion.” To prove them wrong, he created Khiry. “I realized that, as a Black artist and designer working in the fashion industry, I would be contributing to the creation of images that would inevitably reflect and reinforce values that would resonate with larger political issues and struggles.”
