Renowned fine jewelry designer, natural history fetishist and philanthropist Monique Péan’s Fall 2013 Collection features 150 million-year-old dino bones. Yes, darlings…dinosaur bones.

Who would have thought fossilized bones of extinct animals from hundreds of millions of years ago would even be considered as fashion accessories?

Péan did, with passion…and with a purpose. In 2006, she debuted her eco-friendly and sustainable fine jewelry collection inspired by Alaskan Native art and culture, featuring her signature fossilized woolly mammoth and fossilized walrus ivory. The collection is comprised of varying fine jewelry styles, from statement necklaces, earrings and bracelets to pendants, beaded bracelets, bangles and rings. In her current collections, Péan uses other ecological, natural materials such as 18 carat 100% recycled gold, sustainable buffalo horn, fair-trade precious stones and repurposed diamonds and diamond slices to name a few.

Péan also established the Vanessa Péan Foundation in honor of her younger sister who passed away at the tender age of sixteen. The foundation’s focus is to provide scholarships to underprivileged students in Haiti.
