Opulent yet understated, classic yet contemporary, Delhi-based jewellery brand, Atelier Mon, is an ode to elegance and each perfectly crafted piece is a beauty to behold. Launched in 2012 by the inherently stylish mother-daughter duo Monica Sharma and Meher Rohatgi, what sets this chic jewellery brand apart is its effortless ability to infuse easy wearability into unique, statement designs. A fascinating juxtaposition of western inspiration and eastern elements, makes the label a perfect fit for the contemporary woman of today, one who has the inimitability to marry tradition with modernity.
From delicate, unassuming baubles to ones that stand out, each piece has been handcrafted and adorned with hand picked precious and semi-precious stones—think perfectly faceted and imperfectly natural, custom-cut gemstones. In a bid to allow the wearer to make a head-turning impact, each design aims to spotlight the utter uniqueness of the natural stones; be it raw or polished, faceted or uncut. The result is a versatile range of neckpieces, earrings, rings, hand harnesses, palm cuffs, body jewellery that can seamlessly transform from AM to PM.
As a fast-growing luxury brand, apart from Harvey Nichols, Anthropologie-BHLDN, Saks, Lou and Grey, Atelier Mon retails all over the globe and now has 150 stockists worldwide.
With its unmistakable authenticity and striking designs, it comes as no surprise that Atelier Mon has been the choice of Bollywood’s most stylish women including Priyanka Chopra, Deepika Padukone, Sonam Kapoor, and many more. As a fashion fraternity favourite, the label has also made it to the pages of magazines like Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Cosmopolitan, Grazia and Elle among others.
Its no wonder that Cosmopolitan Magazine earmarked Atelier Mon in their article ‘The ultimate guide to India’s Best Jewelry Designers’.
Chief Designer and Founder
Founder and Chief Designer, Monica Sharma is the prima donna of Atelier Mon. Despite being exposed to international fashion from a young age, it was only after her graduation that Monica discovered her innate flair for designing and decided to launch her own business of designing, manufacturing and exporting luxury jewellery. Gifted with an appreciation of all things beautiful, she derives inspiration from indigenous artisans and her extensive travel experiences. Post designing for a host of private labels, global stores and boutiques, she decided to channel her creativity into her own brand. Monica’s ability to naturally assimilate the design language from different corners of the world is what transports her and her creations into a different league.
Head Of Marketing and Co-Founder
As the Head of Marketing and Co-Founder of Atelier Mon, Meher Rohatgi’s role allows her to tap into her business and creative acumen equally. Apart from holding an Economic honours degree from Hindu College, University of Delhi and a design degree from Chelsea College Of Art and Design, University of Arts, London, Meher is also a theatre enthusiast. Her diverse interests are a perfect testimony to her skill set (a classic case of ‘like mother, like daughter’!) and she ensures that the brand’s business development, branding and marketing strategies always remain inventive and dynamic.
