Monica Rich Kosann
Monica Rich Kosann’s collection of 18k gold and sterling silver lockets, charm bracelets and other fine jewelry is rooted in the idea that every woman has a story to tell.
Monica is a fine art portrait photographer using black and white film and darkroom techniques that are wholly unique in our digital age. The personal nature and heirloom quality of her portraits informed her interest in jewelry design. She started creating lockets and charm bracelets, which she launched at Bergdorf Goodman and select group of fine jewelers. Today her collections are offered in her lifestyle shop at Bergdorf Goodman and over 100 fine jewelry and specialty shops.
For Monica, the jewelry design process is driven by one question: Can a woman give this piece of jewelry to her daughter in 20 years? Monica says, “I hope that my collection creates heirlooms for our generation while maintaining an enduring sense of fashion and timeless style. Living and cherishing memories is universal to us all. A locket depicts a moment unique to the wearer. A charm bracelet celebrates a story of that woman’s life; in a way, it is like a fingerprint, totally unique to that woman.”
Monica received Fashion Group Internationalâ€™s 2010 Rising Star Award for Fine Jewelry, and was currently inducted as a member of the CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America).
