We created mazi + zo for sorority women who rise to the challenge and shake things up. 

(It rhymes with Fozzie and Ho.)

In the Greek language, mazi (pronounced mah-zee) means together and zoë (zoh-ee) means life. Native Greek speakers: please forgive our creative license.

Our Mission

 

 

 

Don't underestimate us!

Movies and television too often portray sorority women as shallow, callow, and materialistic, and mazi + zo puts that stereotype to bed.

We channel the energy of Ruth Bader Ginsberg (AEPhi) Kamala Harris (AKA) Sara Blakely (TriDelt) and Lucy Liu (ChiO). Proud, letters-for-life women who embody the spirit of sorority: leadership, philanthropy, academic rigor, and strength in belonging.

We celebrate the power of community to encourage individual achievement.

Our Jewelry

14k gold Letter A earring stud

We handcraft each piece to last with the highest quality sustainable 14k gold and sterling silver and we say "no way" to the industry-standard crazy markups.

Affinity Licensing officially blessed us to make and sell jewelry featuring each featured sorority's symbols and trademarks; they review every licensed piece to ensure we comply with each sorority's guidelines. Licensing also means a portion of every sale goes back to your sorority's HQ by way of royalty payments. 

Proudly made in USA

Our Team

Founder Lizzy Klein is an NYC-based digital entrepreneur who caught the startup bug as a charter sister of Alpha Omicron Pi at Cornell University.

She loves all things bright and colorful (seriously, check out her IG feed!) Launching mazi + zo tickled her shiny bone so hard she braved 5 more ear piercings to up her ear game. 

Design Director Daniel Kennedy Martin is an award-winning bespoke luxury jeweler in London (and way out of our price range,) so we’re psyched AF he’s agreed to apply his giant talent to our world.
