Monica Rich Kosann’s collection of 18-karat 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’s began her career as a fine art portrait photographer using black & 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 a select group of fine jewelers. Today her collections are offered in her lifestyle shop at Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus and over 100 fine jewelry and specialty stores.
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 stories is universal to us all. A locket depicts a moment unique to the wearer. A Charm Necklace captures a singular idea about the woman who wears it, while a charm bracelet celebrates the story of that woman’s life—in a way, it is like a fingerprint, totally unique to the wearer.” Like her lockets and charm designs, all of Monica’s collections, be they Pocketwatch Keys, Planets or Poesy Rings, fuse a timeless heritage of design with a contemporary and modern sensibility.
Monica is a member of the CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America). Her book Living With What You Love was published by the Clarkson Potter division of Random House, and her newest book A Possession Obsession will be published in the fall of 2016 by Glitterati Incorporated.
