Jam + Rico to Bring Summer-Inspired Collection to Claire’s
The 20-piece collection channels designer Lisette Scott’s childhood summers in California.
The jeweler was a member of the inaugural class of the Emerging Designers Diamond Initiative.
Created by designer Lorraine Schwartz and the Natural Diamond Council, the initiative launched in 2021, offering a total of $1 million of diamond credit to BIPOC designers.
Scott’s grandparents were immigrants from Jamaica and Puerto Rico and imparted onto her a love for the countries’ traditions, especially the food and music.
Her Caribbean heritage coupled with her bi-coastal upbringing is reflected in her jewels.
This 20-piece collection for Claire’s was inspired by her childhood summers in California and features seashells, palm trees, and touches of ocean blue.
Though Scott does work in the fine jewelry space, this collection will offer demi-fine, 18-karat gold-plated styles.

“I grew up shopping at Claire's, so this collaboration holds a special meaning,” said Scott.
“It combines the nostalgia and familiarity of Claire's with the fresh and contemporary designs of Jam + Rico, blending past memories and present trends, to create unique jewelry that reflects the carefree and sunny spirit of California summers.”
The designs can be worn layered or alone, said Scott, who wants to encourage young shoppers to feel empowered and express themselves through jewelry.
The jewels range in price from $20 to $55.
The new collection, launching Aug. 15, will be found at Claire’s stores and online.
