Carpe Diem. Seize the day. It's a mantra we have embraced since we first launched our charm collections. It made its first appearance in our jewelry collection as a Carpe Diem necklace available in both sterling silver and 18k gold. That first carpe diem necklace, with a faceted rock crystal ball that spins easily within a cage engraved with the words “CARPE DIEM” is still a signature piece in the Monica Rich Kosann fine jewelry collection. It is the ultimate piece to empower and inspire, whether bought for one self or as a gift. What better gift to celebrate a journey of achievement than a Carpe Diem necklace. Graduation, new jobs, or just a decision to embark on a new life journey are all occasions where Carpe Diem are words that inspire us. The success of that necklace led us to create a Carpe Diem ring (the first of a few) as part of our Poesy Ring and necklace collection. The rings are pre-inscribed with the words CARPE DIEM and they can be slipped onto a finger or worn with other inscribed Poesy Rings on a necklace chain to create one of our Poesy Ring Necklaces. To complete the Carpe Diem jewelry collection we also introduced Carpe Diem bracelets as part of our Poesy Bracelet collections. The bracelets come in a variety of designs where CARPE DIEM is engraved on the underside of the bracelet so it rests quietly against the skin as a source of quiet (and secret) empowerment. All the Carpe Diem designs in the Poesy collections come in sterling silver and 18k gold with a variety of designs that include diamonds and other stones. We find it empowering to be able to offer a full range of Carpe Diem jewelry styles, and we can't help but remember that they all evolved from that first Monica Rich Kosann Carpe Diem necklace. What better reminder than this collection that jewelry should not just be beautiful.
