In terms of capturing the zeitgeist, Lark & Berry – the world’s first designer jewellery brand to offer only cultured diamonds and gemstones – appears to be riding the crest of a wave. Its proposition is that cultured diamonds are equal to mined diamonds – often superior, in fact – yet the way they are produced is sustainable, less environmentally damaging and guaranteed 100 per cent conflict-free, making them a crucial new choice in the marketplace. In other words, if you, as a consumer, care about planet Earth, then this update to the age-old ‘girl’s best friend’ is an exciting no-brainer.
With a flagship store in London’s Marylebone, other stockists in London, New York, Los Angeles and Hong Kong, and an active and engaging presence on social media inviting us to #ShineDifferent, Lark & Berry has only been open for a year, yet its jewellery has already won design awards and been paraded by celebrities at AMFAR, the Met Gala, the Tonys and the BFAs. It also featured in ‘Our Royal Baby’, a book to commemorate Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s relationship and the birth of their first baby, Archie.
