“One cannot resist the lure of Africa.” Rudyard Kipling
Simply Zuri creates African talisman jewellery and accessories that are inspired by the continent’s rich heritage – be it the vibrant colours and cultures of its people; the magnificent wildlife, or the unrivalled zen of the bush – we capture the spirit of Africa.
Our carefully curated collections are deeply rooted in connection:
To its cultural significance and meaning
To a moment in time
To that special occasion
And ultimately, to your beauty.
From the meaningful talisman that nurtures your soul, to colourful trade beads that add an exotic touch, we have you covered. Tell the world who you are, what you value, and where you’ve been… all without saying a word.
THE STORY BEHIND OUR AFRICAN TALISMAN JEWELLERY
Simply Zuri was created from a desire to provide women with everyday wear charms, while the parent brand, SHIKHAZURI, houses exclusive one-of-a-kind statement pieces.
The word “Zuri” means beautiful in Swahili, and while our aesthetic is a simpler take on SHIKHAZURI’s elaborate style, our mission to unveil the story and meaning behind each piece is very much alive.
The Afro-centric focus stems from my love for the beauty and rich cultural diversity that I’ve grown up with, experienced during my travels around the continent, and always come back home to in Kenya. Indeed, anyone who has travelled to and returns back to Africa knows that it’s only a matter of time before it gets under your skin.
Clean modern silhouettes and functional design ensures our accessories will uplift rather than weigh you down. Perfect for the global nomad who seeks to carry a piece of Africa on their every day journey.

HOW DID I GET HERE?
It all started with the SHIKHAZURI journey which was born from my tri-fold passions for travel, cultural curiosity, and wildlife conservation. More on my backstory here.
I love discovering and working with ethnic beads, intriguing artefacts, unusual stones and mesmerising fossils. However, I began receiving numerous requests for the charms that I would incorporate into my statement necklaces. My customers love and are drawn to the stories behind them, but most of the pieces I source are truly one-of-a-kind and cannot be reproduced.
But the enquiries persisted. I realised I had to do something about this.
Simply Zuri was born.
- African talisman jewellery that can be bought, gifted and worn by all.
- Stories and memories that can be shared amongst friends and family.
