With just a day before New York Fashion Week (NYFW), MONTSERRAT New York, a New York City-based line of womenswear, announced the launch of lab-grown diamond jewelry for Autumn/Winter 2021.
By producing unique yet timeless lab-grown diamond jewelry with designs that amplify the brand’s aesthetic, MONTSERRAT New York aims to fill a void in the lab-grown diamond market. The Autumn/Winter 2021 collection, titled Our Love Letter to New York, is the team’s ode to the city’s infectious energy, wild nights, and resilient hustle.
Inspired by Elsa Peretti’s life, MONTSERRAT New York’s collection emulates Peretti’s captivating socialite existence in Manhattan and draws from her treasured time spent in Costa Brava. The line proudly features lab-grown diamonds expanding MONTSERRAT New York’s commitment to sustainability.
The Autumn/Winter 2021 collection will be the first to launch with fifteen lab-grown diamond SKUs with price points ranging from $180 – $595 USD followed by the Spring/Summer 2022 collection. Each piece is made using 18k gold plated sterling silver, and will be offered in both white gold and yellow gold.
In an effort to decrease MONTSERRAT New York’s carbon footprint the brand has teamed up with Terrapass to purchase carbon offsets by funding renewable energy and methane capture projects in communities across the country that work in diminishing the impact of their own greenhouse gas emissions.
MONTSERRAT New York’s lab-grown diamonds collection will be exclusively available DTC on Montserrat-nyc.com starting on September 7, 2021.
ABOUT MONTSERRAT NEW YORK:
Montserrat New York fuses the two worlds of founder and designer Carolina Cordón-Bouzán: New York City and Barcelona. Every design is created not only to evoke the unique spirit of each location, but also to transition effortlessly between the events that come with bustling city life and weekend escapes. Cordón-Bouzán was surrounded by the industry from childhood through her jeweler grandfather who hand-made fine jewelry for Tiffany & Co. and Harry Winston as well as her grandmother’s garment factory in Montserrat’s Costa Brava.
After a formative experience with CFDA/Vogue Incubator-supported brand, WHIT, where she learned the industry’s ins and outs firsthand, Cordón-Bouzán further developed her skills before striking out on her own. She partnered with her trusted friend, Gayle Yelon, to make her vision for Montserrat New York a reality. Together, they forge a brand that embodies the strength, sensuality, and style of women that stomp the streets of Manhattan and soak in the rays of the Mediterranean beaches.
