About

At Mignonne Gavigan, accessories are the perfect finishing touch. Our philosophy is that sophistication and playfulness can coexist, with thoughtfully designed one-of-a-kind pieces that tell a story of handmade craftmanship and faraway travels. Founded in 2014, our approach stems from Mignonne’s love of art, nature, architecture, and textiles bringing them all together in accessories that bring joy and happiness.

With partners in India and Asia, we create modern designs, informed by 100-year-old heritage techniques. Signature styles include embroidered and beaded scarf necklaces, meaningful charms, decadent statement earrings, and intricately detailed brooches, and bracelets.

Wear, love and elevate your everyday!

Founding Story

Based in New York City, Mignonne Gavigan founded her namesake brand in 2014. After graduating from Parsons Paris and working in the apparel industry, while experimenting with a beaded couture vintage gown an embellished piece of fabric fell to the floor, she picked it up and fastened it around her neck. On her walk home through Soho a handful of compliments and questions on where she had gotten her necklace came about and the first Mignonne Gavigan design idea was born. She launched the Mignonne Gavigan collection with truly unique scarf necklaces and has since expanded the collection. With partners all over the world, Mignonne’s design approach stems from her love of art, nature, architecture, and textiles and creates modern designs, informed by 100-year-old heritage techniques. Signature styles include embroidered and beaded scarf necklaces, meaningful charms, decadent statement earrings, intricately detailed brooches, and bracelets.

Ultimately what she discovered is that women develop a significant amount of confidence when wearing an MG piece. Her ultimate goal in developing Mignonne Gavigan was to build a community of kind, confident women which is cultivated through her cult following of loyal MG customers and the all women-run team at MG Headquarters. Each piece created is meant to bring joy and happiness to the wearer.
