Today I would like to introduce you to the New York based premier environmentally friendly fine jewelry line MONIQUE PÉAN that is known for its one-of-a-kind designs, avant-garde style and unique materials, including sustainable fossilized woolly mammoth and walrus ivory as well as dinosaur bones.
Partnering with artisans around the world to support traditional craftsmanship and cultural heritage, MONIQUE PÉAN, founded in 2006, strives to raise awareness of art, culture and global environmental issues through design. Proceeds from the sales contribute to global philanthropic organizations such as charity: water, which provides clean drinking water and basic sanitation to people in developing nations.
In 2009, Péan was one of the recipients of the prestigious CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Award, and won the Ecco Domani Fashion Foundation Award for Accessories that same year. Péan was raised in the Washington D.C. area and holds a B.A. in Philosophy, Political Science and Economics.
Now, you have the chance to pre-order her exclusive Resort 2015 line until August 26, 2014 for which she embarks on an archeological expedition with these most rare gems featuring prehistoric fossils. Conflict-free diamonds shine bright in the sleek settings that bring new meaning to modern relicts.
