Zigleys, a Black-owned start-up, is revolutionizing hair accessories with its opulent collection of 18-karat gold jewelry for locs, braids, and twists. The founder, Daria Dana, a proud wearer of locs, says that Zigleys’ jewelry is an investment piece and an heirloom that can be passed down through generations. The jewelry is sustainable, and ethically made in New York using the latest, state-of-the-art technology and equipment. Each piece is uniquely crafted from the finest gold, with select pieces embedded with diamonds.
Black hair is profoundly unique, culturally rich, and special, and for too long, there hasn’t been an option to adorn this precious hair in fine jewelry. However, Zigleys is changing this by introducing elevated jewelry for Black hair, making it compatible with luxury and professionalism. Our hair is our crowns, which have deep cultural significance, and it’s high time we adorn it with fine jewelry.
What sets Zigleys apart from other hair accessories is the quality and craftsmanship of the jewelry. The collection’s debut, Premier, took a year to make, with a large portion of that time dedicated to perfecting the securing mechanism and finding the right partners to work with on the product. The threading for the screw on the base of the screw and the inside of the jewelry is handmade, resulting in a secure screw function that’s stronger than locs.
Zigleys’ jewelry is a game-changer for Black women who have long been told that their natural hairstyles are unprofessional. These hairstyles are now popular in boardrooms, courtrooms, and even the Supreme Court, as demonstrated by Ketanji Brown Jackson. Celebrity dreadlock wearers such as Erykah Badu, Chloe x Halle, Teyanna Taylor, J. Cole, and Post Malone often accessorize their locs, demonstrating how quality hair accessories can enhance these hairstyles.
The current supply of hair jewelry is not long-lasting, and the quality diminishes significantly within a month or so. They end up being disposable hair jewelry, which is bad for the environment. However, Zigleys’ jewelry will last a lifetime and can be a family heirloom, passed down for generations and still remaining gorgeous and intact. That’s what Black women deserve, and Zigleys is proud to be the first and only company to do it.
To herald the launch of the collection, Zigleys hosted an exciting contest that required participants to share the brand’s social links, and one winner was rewarded with an exquisite, diamond-embedded piece. Zigleys’ jewelry is seen as a pioneer, redefining hair jewelry for locs, braids, and twists with its opulent line of 18-karat gold hair jewelry.
In conclusion, Zigleys is more than just a hair accessory line; it’s a symbol of empowerment, a celebration of Black culture, and a legacy that can be passed down through generations. Zigleys’ jewelry is a testament to the beauty and strength of Black women and their hair. With Zigleys’ hair jewelry, Black women can adorn their hair in fine jewelry that’s compatible with luxury and professionalism. So why not adorn it?
