Influential jewelry brand Jennifer Fisher is officially dabbling in lab-grown diamonds.
Yesterday, the New York–based company debuted a collaborative collection of stud earrings created in partnership with lab-grown diamond firm Diamond Foundry. The eight mismatched diamond studs are currently available exclusively on the brand’s website.
The collection’s diamonds—which are cut into trendy trillion, emerald, and keystone shapes—are anchored by handmade 18k yellow gold settings.
Interestingly, the prices and diamond weights for the earrings aren’t revealed on the site. Instead, shoppers are given an email and phone number to inquire into those details and to make a purchase.

Nina Stuart, global communication director for the brand, says the reason for this is because each earring is one-of-a-kind and “varies based on carat weight and quality.” She adds, “The inventory list is ever-changing, and so it made more sense for us to manage sales via phone and email inquiries.”
Prices for earrings (which I was given by phone this morning) hover around those set by De Beers’ new lab-grown collection, Lightbox Jewelry, which many jewelry and gem professionals believe has effectively set the market price for lab-grown diamonds at around $800 per carat.
Single emerald-cut earrings in Jennifer Fisher’s new collection are priced at $900; a trillion-cut earring retails for $1,900; and a chic keystone-cut diamond stud can be had for $2,875.
The shapes and stripped-down settings of the earrings feel fresh and edgy and true to Fisher’s much-copied signature style.
“To align with Diamond Foundry’s unique production methods, I wanted to make something nontraditional,” the designer said in a prepared statement. “I see these studs as a bit more modern, intended to be worn mismatched.”
