Unsure about what path to take after graduating from FIT, Katie tested the waters in three very different fields. She quickly learned that pre-med at Fordham wasn’t for her - but it was clear that both yoga instruction training and metal-working spoke to her soul. Marrying into the Diamond family (as fate would have it) put endless opportunity at her fingertips to pursue a passion in jewelry design.Katie launched her first collection in 2007 out of love for all things sparkling & her obsession with the notion that jewelry is one of the few things in our lives that can become heirlooms when intentionally passed down from one generation to the next.
In May of 2015, Katie opened her first shop in one of the oldest standing buildings in Ridgewood, NJ. Built in 1790, her retail space includes charming architecture and luminous natural light. The space doubles as a studio & storefront, welcoming shoppers from the surrounding area to browse the lifestyle store. The Katie Diamond Store located at 570 N Maple Ave. focuses on elevated gift, jewelry & apothecary items at accessible price points.
