John Prip was craftsman-in-residence at the Reed & Barton plant from 1957-1960, and afterwards served as a design consultant until 1970. In 1958, he was asked to design a tea and coffee set to compliment the Diamond pattern flatware designed by Gio Ponti in 1954.

The set was well received and was advertised as late as 1976 with the headline "The Diamond is Forever.
