Monies

Among the noble metals, gold is especially coveted, its natural attributes allowing it to withstand the passage of time without tarnishing. The craft of goldsmithing involves multiple ways of working precious metals, including the fusion of gold or silver with other materials to create more resilient alloys. Embodying the ethos of their practice, classically trained goldsmiths Gerda and Nikolai Monies founded their now decade-spanning jewelry label, Monies, on another kind of union: marriage. Establishing their women’s jewelry line on the Copenhagen waterfront in 1973, the husband-and-wife duo broaden the scope of workable elements and indulge in their love of unconventional materials, from gold foil and silver leaf to acacia, horn, coconut, and ebony. Structure and volume are skillfully considered in the making of bracelets, earrings, and necklaces that range from subtle elegance to artful statement. A history of binding disparate entities together lead Monies to collaborations with prestigious brands such as Chanel, Christian Lacroix, and Donna Karan. The Danish jewelry label proves that bringing things together opens the door for something greater because even the most precious gold is stronger in marriage.
