Monica Rich Kosann

Jewelry Designer

New York jewelry designer Monica Rich Kosann creates modern day heirlooms, available on 1stdibs, meant to evoke a sense of timelessness. Kosann began her career as a photographer, an endeavor she still pursues, after completing art and design studies at RISD, FIT and the Sorbonne. Kosann's daughters, Laura (left) and Danielle (right), are tastemakers in their own right: the duo are founders of the popular food and lifestyle site, The New Potato. In honor of Mother’s Day, we asked these talented ladies to handpick their favorite items from 1stdibs, which include Arthur Elgort photographs, Chanel frocks and Art Deco collectibles. For more from this inspiring trio, head to The Study and read our interview where they discuss family, food and — of course — jewelry.
