Vintage Monet jewellery

 Vintage Monet Jewelry information and Monocraft history

Just vintage Monet jewellery or Monocraft accessories information and photographs. Part of our research on the many jewellery companies across the world. This US company started out in the 1920s and although has changed ownership several times in its long history, it is still in production today.  It is famous for its high quality, fashionable and well made finishes. Ideal to collect and wear.

First established by two brothers - Michael and Joseph Chernow under the name Monocraft. They originally produced monogrammed car emblems. Now rare to find and of course very collectible. Monocraft originally capitalized on the monogram craze by having monogrammed keyrings, bag labels and ultimately jewellery. They then continued after the great depression in the 1930s, to not only produced jewellery but other accessories that could be monogrammed. Continuing its tradition of producing good quality and classical pieces that have stood the test of time. Monet is still a brand that is ideal to wear on many occasions.

All the Monet jewellery pieces that we have showcased here are sourced here in the UK by us. Then photograph each piece of jewellery ourselves. This makes our blog post unique as many blogs we have seen just take photographs from on the web.

I preserve the past. Researching family and local history. Finding about mine and other people's ancestors, is just one of my passions. I also love vintage costume jewellery made here in the UK. I write about my finds and like to research.
