MONIQUE PÉAN and Liya Kebede are pleased to present a unique capsule collection of fine jewelry created to benefit the Liya Kebede Foundation, which supports maternal, newborn and child healthcare globally with a focus in Ethiopia.
Designed in Iceland while Liya Kebede was being photographed for the latest MONIQUE PÉAN campaign, the pieces are inspired by geometric interpretations of the shape of the African continent. Lines, mirroring the ancient technique of scrimshaw, are used to highlight the continent’s different regions.
“Liya Kebede, with her focus on philanthropy and global awareness, is the perfect embodiment of the MONIQUE PÉAN woman. It has been an honor to collaborate with her while raising awareness of maternal health issues.” – Monique Péan.
The collection is comprised of 18 carat recycled gold, fossilized walrus ivory, conflict and devastation free diamonds and a one-of-a-kind sustainable blue sapphire. 100% of the proceeds will benefit the Liya Kebede Foundation.
