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 monogram 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. Through Monocraft, the Chernows capitalized on the popularity of monogramming—the late-1920s were the height of monogram mania. They specialized in monogramming of car doors. It wasn’t until the second half of the 1930s that Monocraft expanded its product line to include jewelry monograms, including dangle pins, bracelets, name chains, fobs, and watch chains. As was the brothers’ practice, they researched the costume jewelry industry extensively after their success with monogrammed jewelry pieces. They concluded there was a large number of “women of discriminating taste” in the market for affordable fashion jewelry that looked like the real thing. Thus, Monet was launched in 1937. 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. In addition, most vintage Monet jewelry is marked with its name, like a fine jewelry manufacturer would do, which is unusual in the costume jewelry trade.

Locking C-Clasp Closure
This is in very good condition. The pin is a bit bent but sturdy on the back and the locking c-clasp works. The clear and red rhinestones are all intact and very bright and shiny. The gold tone is clean and in excellent condition.
This would be a great gift idea for holidays, as a hostess gift, or for someone who loves snowmen.
