Monet Glass Pearl with Gold Flower Wedding Parure ~ Perfect for Prom!
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. The 1970s saw the arrival of pierced earrings (until then, all Monet earrings were all clip-ons). 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 stunning Monet parure features detailed gold flowers with three perfect glass pearls in the center. The bracelet has two rows of perfect, realistic looking, simulated pearls. This precious, collectible bracelet and matching earring set would make an awesome gift for a young lady going to the prom, an excellent bridal gift or something for Monet collectors who love exquisite vintage jewelry! The bracelet alone is absolutely classic!!!
The earrings measure approx. 1.25″L x .5″W and have surgical steel posts.
The bracelet measures 7.75″L x .875″W and has a secure clasp.
Note to collectors: This set is not signed however it is sold with the original tag for the earrings.
All pieces are highly polished, the bracelet a good weight and feel on the wrist, and all are in excellent vintage condition.
