Monique Pean: for the Sustainable Gentleman

Haitian American jewelry designer and tour de force, Monique Péan is a remarkable woman and a remarkable designer.

Through an unexpected close family passing, Monique transitioned from her life as an analyst to seek to change the world through artistic and philanthropic initiatives. This led to The Vanessa Pean Foundation and Monique Pean Jewelry.

Her pieces are clean, bold, vivid, refreshing and classic- pieces for an iconic gentleman.

Monique fantastically and thoughtfully selects perfect central stones for her pieces, which are often simply and elegantly outlined by solid clean lines. No two stones are alike, as each stone has its own characteristics and distribution, allowing the piece to be infinitely unique.

Her work is bold, eye catching and inviting.

In addition to her remarkable designs, which boldly and elegantly feature fossilized woolly mammoth and walrus ivory, Monique is an all around ‘citizen of the world’.  Her brand, Monique Pean is committed sustainability and has established itself  as the premier eco-friendly fine jewelry collection available. Her in-house production team oversees all aspects of production – from sourcing to stone setting to ensure high quality and standards are met. Her work is composed of 100% recycled metals and the brand is a member of the No Dirty Gold Campaign. All of her stones are conflict and devastation free. Her materials are sourced globally through partnerships and collaborations with local artisans and communities, in an effort to promote and practice fair global trade. Also, Monique Pean‘s philanthropic works reach many as she works with organization in Malawi, Haiti, Mozambique and all around the world.

Her designs are truly wearable art.

  1. This collection looks like modern art! Again, the stone is the show piece and is elegantly captured in metal, framing edges to the cut stone. Its as it were dipped in metal and a ring was created. Really clean collection.

  2. New Rules
    Great balance , as in the women’s collection clean geometry and material selection producing powerful work.
