Idunnu Tomori joins The Cool Soror Podcast. This Cool Soror of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. is the CEO/Founder of Misayo House, an Atlanta based online boutique of Fine Fashion Jewelry. She created the company with the desire to share her love of classic, timeless jewelry.
Idunnu was born in New York City to Nigerian parents and lived in London, England and Lagos, Nigeria before returning to the States at the age of 14. She obtained her Bachelors of Science in Psychology at Florida State University. She also obtained a Masters degree in Mental Health Counseling at Georgia State University.
Upon getting married a few weeks after completion of her graduate studies, Idunnu moved to Indiana where she worked as a therapist for several years. Her husband’s job subsequently moved them to South Africa, where she hosted jewelry parties with friends due to her inability to work on a spousal visa. A little over year later, her husband’s job moved them to Nigeria where she resumed her career as a therapist.
When they returned to the U.S., Idunnu established Misayo House as a registered company on the premise that luxury jewelry can be affordable and exquisite. Idunnu works closely with experienced manufacturers to create pieces that rival the look of precious metals and stones but without the hefty price tags. And that is the true meaning of “redefined jewels.”
