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.
