Company Snapshot

Raised in East Hampton, Long Island, Foster, who now lives between New York City and Los Angeles, grew up surrounded by artists and artisans; her homes were only blocks away from Jackson Pollock’s house and the studio of Dutch American abstract impressionist, Willem de Kooning, which sparked a creative spirit and curiosity for design. She attended UCLA to study ancient art and architecture, and after formal training working as an apprentice with European goldsmiths she enrolled at the Gemology Institute of America to study diamonds, rare gemstones, and pearls. 

Her studies add up to an impressive skill set, resulting in varied fine jewelry collections where feats of engineering regularly come into play. Foster’s agenda-setting collections not only trigger trends, such as her noted organic-meets-fine milky diamond slices, but also has catapulted her name into the hearts of fashion editors and luxury retailers the world over. Her jewelry has been on the covers Elle, Marie Claire, Glamour, InStyle and countless others, and has been featured in Vogue, Town and Country, Harper’s Bazaar, Tatler, and Vanity Fair. 

Her standout pieces reflect her interest in the Art Deco period, her love of the Gold Coast of Long Island in its Thirties heyday, and the bygone glamour of Truman Capote and the swans who inspired him. It all translates into pieces such as her weighty diamond cocktail rings, as well as her glamorous Deco diamond baguette and enamel chandelier earrings; and, for the woman who simply has everything – a pair of diamond pave bobby pins and headband.

Foster’s designs reside in prestigious stores across the globe from London to Los Angeles, New York to Moscow, as well as select online luxury retailers.
