About Monica Rich Kosann
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.
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 bracelet celebrates the story of that woman's lifein a way, it is like a fingerprint, totally unique to the wearer."
Like her lockets and charm designs, all of Monica's collectionsbe they Pocketwatch Keys, Planets or Poesy Ringsfuse a timeless heritage of design with a contemporary and modern sensibility.
Monica is a member of the CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America).
