Monica Rich Kosann’s collection of 18-karat gold and sterling silver lockets, charm necklaces, bracelets, and a broad collection of other fine jewelry is rooted in the idea that every woman has a story to tell. Monica’s lifelong love of art, design and photography led her first to become a fine art black & white portrait photographer. The personal nature and heirloom quality of her portraits informed her interest in jewelry design and led to the brand’s singular creation and re-invention of lockets and charm oriented styles as modern heirlooms for a new generation.For the Monica Rich Kosann brand, the jewelry design process is driven by one question: “Is the style both contemporary and timeless… can a woman treasure it in 20 years as much as she does today?" Monica says, “Living and cherishing stories is universal to us all. My lockets capture a moment unique to the wearer. The poesy and charm collections celebrate the story of each woman’s life—in a way, they are like a fingerprint, totally unique to that woman.” Monica is a member of the CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America) and has published three books The Fine Art of Family, Living With What You Love, and her newest A Possession Obsession published by Glitterati Inc.
