UK jewellery brand Lark & Berry, whose Supernova diamond necklace featured prominently at this year’s Academy Awards, has reworked the piece into a new collection.

The 64.5ct Supernova necklace was one of three pieces in a suite created for the 2020 Oscars in February, worn by actor and singer Billy Porter who performed in the ceremony’s opening musical number.

It was created with gemstones provided by American lab-grown diamond specialist Diamond Foundry.

“In brainstorming the Supernova necklace design, we definitely had the Big Bang in mind,” said Lark & Berry founder, Laura Chavez. “For the lines of diamonds shining out from the piece’s center, we drew inspiration from the natural wonder of a celestial supernova which is, of course, where its name comes from.

“For the diamond cuts, we went with exquisite trillion and baguette stones in delicate sizes. We remain proud of it – set with over 500 stunning cultured diamonds, it’s a real show-stopper, as Billy Porter proved at the Oscars!”

Now, the necklace is being recrafted into a special, limited-edition collection of 39 smaller, new pieces all set in glorious 18ct white gold.

Lark & Berry hopes fans of film and sustainable jewellery will jump at the chance to own a part of the Supernova necklace.
