Where Heirlooms & Beauty Meet

Sephora.com, Inc. Last week the lovely Purplelab Cosmetics founder, Karen Robinowitz, hosted, along with designer Josie Natori and actor/director Tony Goldwyn (of the movie, Ghost fame), an intimate event to celebrate heirlooms for photographer and fine jewelry designer, Monica Rich Kosann.

I was one of the lucky 20 fashion, beauty, and lifestyle bloggers invited to join them at the Town & Country-decorated townhouse at Soho Mews.

I received a vintage postcard (mine was nearly a century old!) upon arriving. (Pictured, below).

Items, pictured from the top, clockwise: Monica Rich Kosann Charmed Necklace pendants (fineartoffamily.com), Michael Kors Very Hollywood Solid Perfume Ring, Juicy Couture Charm Bracelet, Monica Rich Kosann Charmed Bracelets, Marc Jacobs Lola Solid Perfume Ring, Kat Von D Solid Perfume Ring.)

The theme behind the postcards was Monica Rich Kosann's remembering the postcards from her family's travels as well as to the great tradition of mailing thoughtful notes to loved ones and she came up with this fun activity to write a note about our special heirloom.

Which leads me to the idea of heirlooms and beauty. Monica's beautiful jewelry combines the concept of intimate heirlooms and family memories with stunning design and attention to detail.

When I saw the Monica Rich Kosann line of bracelets, charms, necklaces and other jewelry in person at the event, and on Monica herself, it reminded me of a growing trend of perfume brands creating pieces of jewelry which are bold, distinctive and feminine - ones which not only allow for a modern and handy application of beautiful fragrances, but can certainly be kept as an heirloom to be passed down to our beauty loving friends, family and loved ones! - RLB
