When we decided to get married in 2011, we were fundamentally against including mined diamonds in the engagement ring that would symbolize our love forever. We instead created a custom ring that utilized laboratory-grown diamonds. The process was confusing and access to the stones was limited. You can read about our personal journey to build our engagement ring on Ada's blog.
We founded Ada Diamonds as a luxury jeweler that helps others build beautiful, meaningful diamond jewelry that represents our clients' love in a kind and compassionate way. We have three core values at Ada Diamonds:
Quality, Artistry, & Integrity
We believe that our diamonds represent the pinnacle of human achievement: producing a beautiful symbol of pure love from pure chemistry, as opposed to the stone age process of digging diamonds out of a massive hole in the ground. We believe our diamonds are poetic science, a term coined by our namesake, Lady Ada Lovelace. We refuse to sell cubic zirconia, moissanite or any other inferior material. We only sell diamonds and ethically sourced precious metals.
Today, Ada Diamonds offers made-to-order jewelry with only the best human-created diamonds in the world. We invite you to read why it matters where it comes from, explore Ada's collection of designs, learn about our custom design process, and schedule a consultation with a member of our friendly Diamond Concierge Team.

Ada Diamonds is Named in Honor of Lady Ada Lovelace
We are named in honor of August Ada King, Countess of Lovelace, an audacious and brilliant 19th century mathematician, mother, musician, socialite, and computer scientist who was affectionately known as the Enchantress of Numbers. Lady Lovelace was a preeminent scholar in London, who regularly collaborated with and challenged other luminaries such at Charles Babbage, Michael Faraday, Charles Dickens, and Charles Darwin.
She is widely credited as the world's first computer programmer for her work to calculate Fibonacci Numbers on Babbage's Analytical Engine. In Babbage's computer, Ada saw the future. She saw the potential to not only improve mathematics and manufacturing, but to also create art, music, and advanced symbolic logic with the revolutionary technology.
Ada Diamonds is honored to have such a powerful scholar, mother, and visionary as our namesake. Her vision of "poetic science" inspires us to create pure science, pure diamonds, and pure poetry every day. We are proud to support initiatives in her honor to advance computing and women in STEM such as the Lovelace Medal and Ada Lovelace Day as part of our Sixth Element Program.
