After 35 years in the industry, supplying fine jewelry to international powerhouses, Zuri Mesica envisioned The Expression in an effort to make a social impact with fine jewelry and empower the Freedom of Expression. Renown for adorning celebrities and world leaders, Zuri is also a celebrated two-time De Beers Jewelry Design winner. As a humanitarian, he has continuously aligned himself with aid organizations around the world, to give back to struggling communities where these diamonds originate.
In 2002, he partnered with one of the world's leading diamond manufacturers and widened his reach on a global scale. Over time, Zuri has mastered every facet of the industry, but today Zuri's vision is to create jewelry that gives back to communities in need of education. Through a worldwide-patented collection wholly inspired by the freedom of expression, he hopes to spread awareness and help to make a difference where it counts most, with our youth.
Under the long tutelage of her father Zuri, Georji Mesica has worked in all facets of the diamond industry from retail to wholesale and marketing to sales. A graduate of the University of Southern California and the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising, Georji is a branding expert with a background in fashion and design. With a deep understanding of Millennial market trends, as well as her desire to start a movement for socially conscious fine jewelry, Georji’s work with her father on The Expression was a natural collaboration.
