The Fine Art of Family

***WINNER PICKED 7/10 WITH RANDOM.ORG***


***CONGRATULATIONS, Kathleen!!!***
her comment... I really like the Silver Rectangle Gate Locket. It reminds me of a piece of Victorian architecture. I'd love to put my little one's picture in it and wear it all the time. I can't see ever getting tired of it.



The Fine Art of Family is a line of jewelry and accessories created by renowned portrait photographer Monica Rich Kosann. Her pieces evoke vintage flea market treasures and are meant to keep your most precious mementos– photographs of your loved ones– close at hand. Delicate hand engraving is combined with a purely modern aesthetic to create contemporary heirlooms that your family will pass down from generation to generation.

Most The Fine Art of Family pieces are available in both sterling silver and 18K gold. Some are also available in white gold versions. Photos are easily interchanged through a slot at the top of each "image case" so you will be more likely to actually update your photos once in a while! Prices range from $170- $12,000. They are beautiful enough to save up for and will be treasured for more than one lifetime.

The Round Signature Floral Half Locket features the elegant floral scrollwork that is The Fine Art of Family hallmark.



The Three Coins Charm Bracelet would also be a great starting piece.



The Fine Art of Family has a wide selection, including some stunning pieces in the Charmed Life collection. I really love the engraved picture frames and folding photo albums. They look like sleek vintage cigarette cases. The Customized Silver Envelope is a bit extravagant but would be a fantastic way to memorialize a special date, like a wedding or graduation. The engraved postmark cracks me up.



To enter and win a silver Round Signature Floral Half Locket (a $190 value), please comment on this post with your favorite piece from The Fine Art of Family.
