MRK: Home Style

12th March, 2013

Considering how richly elegant as I find Monica Rich Kosann’s jewelry collection, photographs, and studio to be, I knew I had to weasel a peek at her more personal world. She’d invited me to collaborate on a story for the relaunch of MRK Style, and I saw it as the perfect excuse to snag an invite to her home! I suggested we bring over a trove of her beautiful jewelry, then shoot the pieces amongst her everyday treasures. I hope you enjoy the results:|ABOVE| Monica’s signature image cases mix with the vintage cigarette boxes that inspired them, alongside her recently-launched line of minaudières|ABOVE + TOP| a bevy of pretty lockets and rings ~ my favorite piece being the 12-sided secret message charm, which cleverly conceals any sort of mementos you’d like to keep inside its hidden chamber. I like to imagine that it holds love notes from a forbidden flame!|ABOVE + BELOW| Art Deco-inspired sterling silver locket necklaces|ABOVE + BELOW| a smoky quartz + yellow sapphire locket, paired with two chunky silver chain bracelets, a blue topaz triple-row bracelet, and a duo of new exotic skin evening bags |ABOVE| Saturn charm necklace (to symbolize commitment), an onyx + diamond locket, and an onyx toggle bracelet |BELOW LEFT| a vintage French carousel rabbit wears my very favorite lapis teardrop locket, alongside the Saturn charm necklace (also seen above) and a new necklace from Monica’s bespoke collection|ABOVE| a few more bespoke lockets, including one very special turquoise stunner|BELOW| the world is your oyster|JEWELRY| by Monica Rich Kosann |PHOTOS| by Mark Iantosca |STYLED| by Kelly Framel
