Monique Péan


Monique Péan is an award-winning American fine jewellery designer, based in SoHo in New York City. Her route into fine jewellery was an emotional one. Raised in the Washington D.C. area, she worked in finance before launching her eponymous fine jewellery collection in 2006.


“While I was working in finance, my younger sister Vanessa Péan unexpectedly passed away in a car accident at the age of 16. At that moment, I realised it was necessary for me to re-evaluate what I wanted to do with my life and I decided that I wanted to find a career that allowed me to combine my passions for design, art, travel and philanthropy. Starting Monique Péan seemed like a natural next step.”


Most of all, the designer has become best known for bold, one-of-a-kind, Art Deco-influenced designs that take on abstract, geometric shapes. She also works with intriguing, rare materials that include sustainable fossilised walrus ivory, dinosaur bone and woolly mammoth, even meteorite.
