"Congés was a combination and cumulation of a need, incorporated with my personal interests, beliefs, in efforts of displaying it in a fashionable way. I created Congés Fine Jewelry for someone like myself. Story telling, keeping memories alive with unique memorabilia without collecting clutter, without overspending on something you keep in a drawer. I wanted to design meaningful pieces that are unique to wear daily, collect, gift, or pass on as a keepsake. The interest of crystals; and designing/ creating something new and different is just how I have always wanted to live my life. These are the ingredients that ignited Congés Fine Jewelry."
