2019’s Best Actress Oscar winner (If Beale Street Could Talk) Regina King, styled by Wayman + Micah, proudly graced the red carpet decked out in ten Lark & Berry grown diamond pieces, including the brand’s Veto, Nocturnal and Dune Collections. King wore an Oscar de la Renta dress inspired by Nina Mae McKinney, an early African-American movie star.
If you’re a true Lark & Berry fan, you’ve heard us talk up this beautiful Bow suite. We debuted Bow in early 2019—it has become our signature collection of cultured diamonds. The three pieces in Bow use only the most precious and glittering lab diamonds. The Bow Collection consists of: an 11.6 carat lab diamonds necklace, 2.5 carat grown diamond earrings and a 2.4 carat man made diamonds engagement ring/wedding band pairing—all pieces are set in the finest platinum.
“Our new Bow suite has a special place in the Lark & Berry cultured diamonds collection, and we are so proud to have it be part of the prestigious Met Gala this year,” says Lark & Berry founder Laura Chavez.
You might remember our precious Bow Collection being a subject of some controversy earlier this year, when it won its craftsman the British “Oscars of Jewelry,” judged by 21 industry-leading diamond experts.
That prize, in quite the shake-up, was short lived due to what we believe was failure on the judges’ part to identify the Bow Collection’s diamonds as cultured diamonds.
…Well, how’s this Met Gala showing, featuring two of Hollywood’s brightest wearing our stunning lab diamonds for a “that’’ll teach them to mess with Lark & Berry moment?” Mark this as a big win for sustainability in luxury, cultured diamonds fans!
