1954, signed Monet on the hangtag. The matching 'Diana' choker features in Vogue magazine advertisements from 1954 at $15 and 1956 at $18.50. If we assume the bracelet would have cost $12 that is equivalent to $100 today [Coin News Inflation Calculator]!

The design is a transition between the smooth chunky machine age link bracelets of the forties and the intricately textured styles of the latter half of the fifties and sixties. This is a lovely quality piece: the finish is still bright due to the Monet triple plating, comfortable to wear because the links have flat backs. Patent 174,735 from 1955 so one of the last patents from Monet.
