Monica Rich Kosann Jewelry Review + Giveaway


Monica Rich Kosann is a professional photographer, who has extended her passion for preserving memories from photographs to jewelry that she describes as "irreplaceable pieces that record personal stories and mark important milestones." The jewelry (she also has a gift collection including frames, photo cases and accessories) stemmed from her love of vintage period pieces, like old cigarette cases, lockets, and powder cases that she adapted to hold pictures.
I received this gorgeous Mini Love Fob Necklace in sterling silver for review. Besides my wedding set, I have never owned a piece of jewelry this expensive. The pendant, inspired by vintage pocket watch fobs, measure 1/2 inch and hangs on a 16 inch chain. The entire necklace is so delicate and just plain pretty. It's a "special occasion" jewelry for me, just because I am scared of breaking and/or losing it, especially with a (almost) one-year-old. Now, honestly, the entire Monica Rich Kosann jewelry line is way too expensive for my bank account. But the jewelry isn't about being affordable, it's about becoming family heirlooms for generations. It's definitely something that would be worth the investment, if you had the money, in my opinion.

One very lucky Mommy Loves Giveaways reader is going to win a Mini Love Fob Necklace as well! Aren't you excited?!

    The piece I love most is the pocket watch locket. I saw it in person at a trunk show. The picture doesn't do it justice. It is exquisite. I want it for me, then to pass down to my daughter.

  127. I like the Vine Pattern Five Image Case. Frankly I can't afford this kind of beutiful things. Because of my age and health, all my things like this I have already given to my family. Sometimes things like this just are not important anymore. I do love this "love" necklace in silver. I know it's not as expensive as the gold one but I love the silver. So does my granddaughter and I would pass it to her if I won it after I wore it a while. I do love this beautiful piece. Thanks for the chance to win it. ybutler@oppcatv.com
