VINTAGE 1980s MONET Adjustable Dreamcatcher Wedding Necklace
Michael and Joseph Chernow, the founders of the costume jewelry business we know today as Monet, had $4 to their name when they first considered entering the business in 1919. The young brothers were meticulous and methodical as they laid their plans, so much so that it took them eight years to found Monocraft in New York. In 1934, the Chernows hired designer Edmond Mario Granville. He came to Monocraft with a background in fine jewelry from Cartier. Granville’s leadership would span a major transition in the company’s history, from its humble beginnings as Monocraft to its eventual acclaim as Monet. Today, vintage Monet jewelry is particularly prized by collectors for its quality. Thanks to triple-plating, it’s not unusual for Monet pieces to last for decades without showing signs of wear on the finish. This exquisite, simulated pearl dreamcatcher necklace is delicate, glistens bright gold with delicate pearls that resemble genuine pearls so closely no one will ever know the difference! This piece is very feminine, would be excellent for gift for a bride, vintage jewelry lovers or the perfect addition to your heirloom jewelry collection.
This piece is in excellent vintage condition and has knotted simulated pearls measuring 17.5″L with a 2″ adjustable chain. There is a signature Monet lobster claw clasp and the pendant measures 3″L x 1.25″W.
