The brand has developed a celebrity following with the likes of Lisa Snowdon, Michelle Williams, the cast of Gossip Girl, Ankie Beilke and Vivian Chow wearing the jewellery brand.

Carat* is positioning itself as an ethical alternative to diamonds as the jewellery gives a diamond look without the ethical complications of a mining process. Carat* sets its synthetic diamonds in precious metals only. Each piece is hand assembled by craftsmen specialising in skills such as micro setting pave, burnishing and simple prong work.
