Vintage Monet Jewellery
Monocraft, the Monet parent company, was founded by two brothers in Brooklyn in 1927. They started off creating monograms and began producing costume jewellery under the Monet name in 1937. Due to their high production quality, they eventually began producing pieces for Yves St. Laurent. In later years they also produced jewellery for Christian Lacroix. Because their metal pieces were triple-plated Monet's vintage jewellery tends to maintain its original finish better than most. Read more about Monet.
