VINTAGE 1980s MONET *signed* Bib Style Triple Silver Plated Eight Strand Necklace
This exquisite, eight strand necklace is decadent, glistens bright silver like something from King Tut's tomb!
This piece has 3.5" of chain graduation and has a secure fold over clasp. It has been signed MONET on the back of the clasp and measures 18"L x 1/8"W. There is a tiny piece of plating missing on one strand which goes completely unnoticed because there are so many strands. Otherwise the piece is in next to new condition. As with all our jewelry, it has been professional cleaned. Please let us know if you have any questions or would like to see additional photographs.
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.
