lark and berry ela webLuxury fine jewellery brand, Lark & Berry is pleased to announce a partnership with the Leonardo DiCaprio-backed diamond growing company, Diamond Foundry. The 64.5ct Necklace from the collaborative collection was unveiled on singer, actor, activist and style icon Billy Porter during the opening ceremony performance at this year’s Academy Awards, held on February 9th, 2020.

Founder of Lark & Berry, Laura Chavez said “Having the opportunity for Billy to wear our jewellery is an incredible honour. He is such an inspiring icon; not only for his larger than life looks we all wish we could pull off, but also for his talent in pushing current issues forward faster than they would normally progress. This makes him the perfect Lark & Berry visionary. We are ecstatic to finally be able to say that he's the icon debuting our amazing necklace made specifically for this occasion.”

The pairing of Lark & Berry’s award-winning design flair and Diamond Foundry’s zero carbon footprint USA-made created diamonds has also yielded a set of long earrings, stud options of a similar design and a dazzling collar necklace—all set in 18k White Gold. The specs of Lark & Berry’s new 3-piece range are as follows: Necklace - 64.5ct / Long Earrings 4.8ct / Studs 2.18ct – all for a total suite carat weight of 71.48.

“In brainstorming these designs, I was ultimately drawn to exquisite trillion and baguette stones in delicate sizes,” said Lark & Berry designer Emily Newman of the new Lark & Berry x Diamond Foundry collection. “These cuts of Diamond Foundry created diamonds allowed me to create a graphic piece with the clean aesthetic that Lark & Berry is known for. The lines of diamonds shining out from the centre of this stunning new necklace drew inspiration from the natural wonder of a celestial supernova. We’re very proud of it; it’s set with over 500 stunning cultured diamonds.”
