2016: Year In Review

To our clients and friends,

Ada Diamonds officially launched in 2016 and what a year it was! We could never have imagined the road ahead of us when we decided to create the world's first fully bespoke fine jeweler utilizing exclusively laboratory grown diamonds.

It's been our honor to assist our clients with creating some truly spectacular pieces of diamond jewelry this year. We’ve put together a mesmerizing video showcasing some of our favorites.

Ada Diamonds was also honored to participate in several events with Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, including the NYC launch of Black Badge in March, and to serve as an Affinity Partner at the Concours D'Elegance Pebble Beach this past August 2016. Ada Diamonds ran a pop up jewelry boutique in the Rolls-Royce Motor Cars villa, sold Rolls-Royce Motor Cars monogram jewelry pieces commissioned by customers, and styled product specialists and executives in fine jewelry. Ada is proud to work with other luxury brands to enhance their high-end events.

Coming out of our amazing experience at Pebble Beach, we were thrilled to be a part of the unveiling of Koenigsegg’s Agera RS Naraya, a custom super car featuring an 18-carat gold ‘Naraya’ nameplate with 155 diamonds (proudly furnished by Ada) , which won the top honor at this year’s Salon Privé Supercar Show held at Blenheim Palace.

In September, Ada Diamonds was the focus of an article in Fortune Magazine entitled “Man-Made Diamonds Are Now Better Than Mined. Here’s Why.” Our founders were also the focus of September cover story on laboratory grown diamonds and technology in the diamond business in trade publication Rapaport Magazine.

In October, Ada's stunning lab grown diamond jewelry was featured in a photo shoot for Nobleman Magazine and the Rolls-Royce Motor Cars 103EX Vision Autonomous Concept Car.

In November, our founders were pleased to appear on The Wall Street Journal’s Lunch Break segment to answer the question “Are Diamonds Made in a Lab a Girl’s Best Friend?” (spoiler: yes!)

Also in November, we launched the Delicate and Strong Collections: our first two Ready-to-Wear collections featuring sustainable, conflict free lab grown diamonds available for immediate gifting.  Just in time for the holidays, Ada was also pleased to announce a new partnership with Affirm, a transparent and modern financing company to offer our customers another option for financing their fine jewelry purchases.

To wrap up an incredible first year, Ada Co-Founder Lindsay Reinsmith appeared on Varney & Co. to chat with host Stuart Varney about man-made diamonds and the future of fine jewelry.

This past year has been a whirlwind of exciting developments for Ada as we’ve established our company as a leader in the lab grown diamond business.  If you’re ready to inquire about building your own piece of lab grown diamond jewelry, inquire today with an Ada Concierge.

And to our loyal clients and friends, thank you!
