Jennifer McCurry, the Jewelry Buyer for Marissa Collections, told Only Natural Diamonds, “Marissa Collections is excited to showcase new jewelry collections by Casey Perez, Gaudy Atelier, Heart the Stones, Ruben Manuel, Mckenzie Liautaud and Sabre Jewelry.” She continued, “We are proud to support these talented, emerging BIPOC jewelry designers and look forward to sharing their stories and collections with our clients!”
This is the second class of EDDI designers for the Natural Diamond Council in partnership with Lorraine Schwartz to provide Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) jewelry designers with access to resources, mentorship and media opportunities as they grow their businesses. Since launching the program, designers have had incredible opportunities to partner with retail brands, such as Malyia McNaughton of Made by Malyia in partnership with customizable jewelry site, GEMIST. The EDDI program has just welcomed its third and most recent class.
Casey Perez, Gaudy Atelier, Heart the Stones, Ruben Manuel, Mckenzie Liautaud and Sabre Jewelry full collections are now available to shop online through Marissa Collections.
