Growing up—long before she married into a family of jewelers with the last name Diamond (yes, for real!)—Katie knew she had a knack for design. “When I was little, my favorite thing to do was make clothes for my sister,” she says. “Even before I knew how to sew, I would make things out of paper and tape them onto her.” READ MORE


Growing up—long before she married into a family of jewelers with the last name Diamond (yes, for real!)—Katie knew she had a knack for design. “When I was little, my favorite thing to do was make clothes for my sister,” she says. “Even before I knew how to sew, I would make things out of paper and tape them onto her.”
After graduating from FIT with a degree in fashion merchandising management, Katie decided to try her hand at the jewelry industry, studying under goldsmith Cecilia Bauer in 2001. A year later, with the basics under her belt and a ring on her finger, Katie, officially a Diamond, took the opportunity to learn the family biz from the inside. “I had access to these people who’ve been working in the business for years and years and were willing to help me learn,” she says.
Her husband sold his family’s nearly 40-year-old company a few years later, and, hard as it was, the timing was kind of perfect: Katie was now poised to carry on the tradition. She took her experience, built out her collection of dainty-yet-edgy pieces (a vibe she likes to call “wearable punk”), and launched Katie Diamond Jewelry in 2008. And she hasn’t looked back. –olivia seely
