Happy Ada Lovelace Day!
Ada Diamonds is delighted to celebrate Ada Lovelace Day, an international day of celebration of the achievements of women in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). Ada Lovelace Day aims to increase the profile of women in STEM and, in doing so, create new role models who will encourage more girls into STEM careers and support women already working in STEM.
Lady Ada Lovelace believed in Poetic Science, and that is exactly what we are doing at Ada Diamonds: combining cutting edge technology and bespoke design to create the best jewelry on Earth.
At Ada Diamonds, innovation and science is at the heart of all we do. Just as Ada Diamonds is revolutionizing the fine jewelry industry with laboratory grown diamonds, our staunch support of audacious, brilliant women is bucking trends in the Silicon Valley. Unlike so many start-ups, the majority of Ada Diamonds’ core team are women.
Ada Diamonds exists because of decades of tireless work from talented engineers, physicists, and material scientists who painstakingly perfected the technology to grow diamonds. We are proud to honor the legacies of Lady Lovelace as well as these engineers by supporting non-profits that expand access to Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) education around the world, especially to underserved populations through our Sixth Element Program.
Ada Diamonds is named in honor of August Ada King, Countess of Lovelace, a 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.
