Get Green: Monique Péan Fine Jewelry INTI Collection
There are two main things that set jewelry designer, Monique Péan, apart from the pack. The first is that her original career was in investment banking and while the finance world does not exactly a successful jewelry designer make, her undying love for arts and design does, thank goodness! Péan is also committed eco-friendly jewelry that doesn't sacrifice innovation or style. Not only does she strive to be environmentally conscious in her designs, she is also passionate about empowering people and raising awareness of indigenous arts and cultures. Péan was selected as one of the 2009 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund winners as well as the recipient of the Ecco Domani accessories award so clearly, it is possible to be both environmentally conscious and uber chic.
