Ella Stein, a new demi-fine diamond jewelry company, needed a cohesive and awe-inspiring way to tell their robust brand story. The diamonds are affordable and sustainable, and every purchase empowers women in India by giving them a job with excellent benefits.
“Everyday diamonds that do a world of good” drove the creative, from styling models to social media content. The most important piece created for the brand was a styleguide, which includes everything from the story of how the brand started to brand colors. The styleguide was used to educate freelance creatives, vendors and sales managers, creating a strong foundation for the brand.
In the hindu culture the color blue represents immortality, bravery, and determination.
Using blue on creative materials gave a nod to the Indian culture and brand story.
4 C’s of Diamonds
Educating the consumer and wholesale accounts took precedence when creating visuals. This gif shows Ella Stein’s twist on the traditional 4C’s of diamonds: cut, color, clarity and carat.
A simple infographic shows the unique journey of the ES diamond.
Branded logo on wooden signs
Creating wooden holders with a branded logo-mark allowed wholesale accounts to recycle the holders and place new signs into the holders when needed.

This achieved two goals: making a sustainable supply chain and supporting a woman entrepreneur.
