'Palazzo' from 1968: a huge three inches! The whole line is reminiscent of South Asian 24 carat gold jewellery, although it was also produced in silvertone. Matching bracelet is a book piece in 'Monet the Master Jewelers' by Alice Vega, two statement necklaces and two earring designs are shown in a catalogue page. There is also a smaller two inch brooch.
Vintage Monet seems so undervalued - especially the brooches - given many of their modernist designs were ahead of their time and the quality was high. I was interested to read this Wall Street Journal article 'Bring Back the Brooch'
