Join us as we delve into the journey of this Diamond Girl, exploring her inspirations, her approach to self-care and wellness, and her impeccable fashion sense that makes her shine both inside and out.

EM: Can you tell us about the inspiration behind Meeyas Link and how you started your journey in the jewellery industry?

Mayomi Ogedengbe: The inspiration behind Meeyas Link emerged from both a personal passion for design and the influence of my mother’s brand, Jewellery Affair. Growing up around such magnificent craftsmanship sparked my interest in jewellery from a young age. This deep-seated admiration motivated me to forge my own path in the industry, creating a brand that blends modern sensibilities with timeless elegance, underpinned by the legacy of Jewellery Affair.

EM: What makes Meeyas Link’s high-end diamond pieces unique compared to other jewellery brands?

MO: Meeyas Link distinguishes itself through meticulous attention to detail and a commitment to personalised designs. Each piece is crafted not just with high-quality materials but with a narrative in mind—transforming traditional luxury into a more intimate and meaningful experience for our clients.

EM: What are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced in the luxury jewellery market, and how have you overcome them?

MO: As the luxury jewellery market begins to grow more competitive, establishing a distinct brand identity has been a key challenge. Additionally, we’ve faced issues with other designers replicating our designs using either 18k gold or cheaper materials like silver. This problem is made worse by the need to display our designs on social media to attract customers in today’s digital age. To tackle this, we’ve focused on continuously innovating and creating unique designs that are difficult to copy. This strategy ensures that Meeyas Link remains distinctive and upholds the high standards akin to those of Jewellery Affair.

MO: My personal fashion sense is best described as minimalist and sophisticated, preferring timeless pieces that speak of quiet luxury. This aesthetic translates into my designs, which emphasise clean lines, understated elegance, and functionality without sacrificing style.

EM: Can you share some of your favourite self-care rituals or activities that help you stay grounded and focused?
