Jewelry Designer Monique Pean is Today’s Honoree

As the premier sustainable fine jewelry collection, MONIQUE PÉAN raises awareness of art, culture and global environmental issues through design. MONIQUE PÉAN is known for its sculptural and structural one-of-a-kind pieces and unique materials and is committed to partnering with artisans around the world to support traditional craftsmanship. MONIQUE PÉAN pieces are handmade by master artisans in New York City using sustainable materials sourced globally through fair trade initiatives. Proceeds from MONIQUE PÉAN sales contribute to global philanthropic organizations which provide clean drinking water and basic sanitation to people in developing countries.

Monique PÉAN launched her eponymous socially responsible and sustainable fine jewelry company in 2006. In 2009, Péan was one of the recipients of the prestigious CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Award and received Tiffany & Co.’s former CEO Michael Kowalski as her mentor. Most recently, Péan was a recipient of the 2015 Wallpaper* magazine design award for “Best Jewellery.” Péan was raised in the Washington D.C. area and received her B.A. in Philosophy, Political Science and Economics from the University of Pennsylvania.
