The Snyder sisters grew up in sunny Florida, where they used their cardiologist father's medical tools to teach themselves how to make jewelry while in middle school. Once the two reunited in New York after their college years, they went back to their childhood hobby and seemingly overnight, the two built their jewelry passion into a successful brand.
Since its inception, DANNIJO has advocated creating sustainable economic opportunity for women in underdeveloped areas of the world. All DANNIJO.com packaging is handmade in Rwanda as part of their women's empowerment initiative.
DANNIJO jewelry is sold at select, high-end stores worldwide including Bergdorf Goodman, Shopbop, Holt Renfrew, Lane Crawford, Harvey Nichols and Liberty.
