The jewels of the American designer Monica Rich Kosann reflect all the modernity of New York ♦ ︎
There are women who become jewelry designers after long studies in goldsmithing or gemology schools. Others who leave professions like finance or marketing to dive into the world of rings, necklaces and bracelets. But, perhaps, there is only one woman who has established herself in the jewelry world after being a portrait photographer: the American Monica Rich Kosann. A passion, that for photography, which perhaps helped her to better understand what a woman really wants when she chooses a jewel.
To photography, the designer has joined the creation of her brand, Monica Rich Kosann.
The collection of 18 karat gold and sterling silver jewelery by Monica Rich Kosann starded from in the idea that every woman has a story to tell, she argues. Today its collections are offered in its boutiques in New York and Los Angeles, its lifestyle store in Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus and over 100 high-end jewelry stores and specialties. The designer is also part of the Cfda (Council of Fashion Designers of America).
Her jewelry have a very modern, very New York style, very light. It is fine jewelry to wear without problems every day and, in fact, it is offered at very different prices, since it also includes silver jewelry. The latest collection is called Slim Locket and includes a series of pendants that can be opened and in which to insert a photograph. A very modern line for a jewel that recalls the lockets of nineteenth century. Alessia Mongrando
