It was only natural that Monica Rich Kosann's career would evolve into making beautiful keepsake jewelry. Her first career, as a portrait photographer, enabled her to see that people had stories - special moments in time - that begged to be captured. She chose to portray their stories, rather than ask them to pose. She says, "My brand is really an evolution of that idea - capturing the special moment, the empowering story." It was easy to transition to a jewelry designer, as she loved jewelry and had an affinity for vintage pieces, especially antique lockets. Monica loved the mystery behind them - she wondered who wore them and what stories did they have? Her offering today includes contemporary lockets, in sterling silver and 18KT gold, as well as empowering and inspiring charm necklaces.
