MONA ASSEMI
Mona Assemi’s Iranian-inspired designs frequently feature homages to her Persian heritage. Her current collection of gold earrings utilizes turquoise stones and mobarak bad coins she imports from Iran to help bring awareness to the recent women-led protests in the nation. The coins symbolize joy, prosperity and light, and have traditionally been tossed at weddings for centuries to congratulate and uplift new couples. Assemi follows a zero-waste model to create all of her elegant pieces, subtly inspiring hope and positivity for — and from — this ancient region. From $388.
