'Royal Laurel' from 1951, an advertising piece. The necklace and bracelet are signed MONET, the earrings are signed MONET PAT'D. Although there are no patents covering the stylised laurel leaf design, shown are patents for a similar adjustable slide from 1951 and the rollover bracelet clasp from 1948. The adjustable bracelet is a book piece in 'Collecting Costume Jewelry 202' by Julia Carroll.

According to the advert the pieces would have cost $15, $10 and $5 respectively which is equivalent to $130, $85 and $45 today [Coin News Inflation Calculator]! In this series there are two sizes of earrings and two different brooch designs, and was available in silver and gold plate finish.
