New York-based Monique Péan creates stunning jewelry using sustainable materials such as recycled gold and platinum, and conflict free gemstones. Monique is renowned for her philanthropy, including her support for Charity: Water, which provides clean drinking water in developing countries. The Mineraux Collection of engagement rings - each piece handmade by skilled artisans - was inspired by the designer’s own search for the perfect ring for her upcoming nuptials. Named after the French word for Minerals, the collection features rare diamond cuts such as the trillion, waterfall and rose cut, which lend each piece an aesthetic that is both avant-garde and timeless. This one-of-a-kind engagement ring is crafted from recycled oxidized platinum and set with 0.93ct champagne colored octagonal diamond as well as white diamond pavé.
