“Diamonds are a girl’s best friend” cantaba Marilyn Monroe interpretando a Lorelei Lee, quién rechazaba a un séquito de admiradores en su actuación en "Los caballeros las prefieren rubias".

Las joyas creadas por Jessica McCormack serían las que la señorita Lee aceptaría para barajar una candidatura hacia su corazón. Firmados con el nombre de la diseñadora, las piezas creadas por ella y sus socios Rachel Slack y Michael Rosenfeld, unidos al proyecto posteriormente gracias a la misma pasión y filosofía de trabajo, son unas auténticas obras de arte. Los orígenes de Jessica son los responsables de su amor por la joyería, y en particular, por los diamantes. La casa de subastas, propiedad de su padre, despertó en ella años atrás esa inquietud por cada piedra preciosa, y ésta todavía permanece y la inspira en sus propias creaciones.

El pasado y la tradición. Cada gema cuenta la historia de una vida, una familia, un amor. El crear nuevas memorias y transmitirlas con una pieza suya es el principal propósito de Jessica. Su creatividad y la de sus compañeros es trasladada a pendientes, colgantes y sortijas de diamantes, oro, y rubíes. Una joya puede ser tres, y tres puede ser una. La integración de las piezas crea un hermoso y exclusivo puzzle que cautivará a toda mujer, incluso a una tan exigente como Lorelei.
