The brand announced the new WCC store is now open on its website, under the banner of "stories told here."

The Connecticut-based designer is known for her lockets and storytelling pieces of fine jewelry. To that end, the new WCC store will feature a Locket Bar where customers can resize and edit photos they will put in lockets. The Locket Bar is accessible to both customers who are currently buying lockets in store as well as ones who have older lockets.

Her celebrity jewelry following includes Sarah Jessica Parker, Lupita Nyong’o and Carrie Underwood among others, making LA a natural choice for the brand's second boutique. The Century City store joins the brand's other U.S. store in New York's The Shops at Columbus Circle.

The new space in Century City is decorated with portrait photographs taken by Kosann herself: Kosann began her career as a black and white portrait photographer which helped develop her jewelry brand identity, focusing on the concept that every woman has a story to tell. Her photography clients include Usher and Jennifer Lopez. Kosann studied at RISD, the Sorbonne, the  International Center of Photography, and Austria’s International Academy of Art. She is a member of the CFDA and a published author.

Monica Rich Kosann is also sold at Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus and over 100 fine jewelry locations in the U.S. This is her first store on the West Coast and second free standing boutique in the country. It is now open on the first floor of the newly renovated WCC.
