    When I hear the name Monet, this kind of jewelry I just posted does not come to my mind. I was surprised to see that both pieces are marked "Monet" on the back.

    I still have to gently clean the pieces but from what I can see so far, the condition is almost perfect if you disregard some light wear.

    Green is one of my favorite colours and therefore I am sure I will wear this jewelry.

    Thanks for looking:)

      Monet Jewelry, is one of tricky ones to date. From your photos it looks like the chain is very delicate, Is it ?
    2. freiheit freiheit, 3 years ago
      Yes, the chain is very delicate, nutsabotas. The necklace gives the impression of fine jewelry but, of course, it isn't. I have seen this style of necklace before but I just cannot remember what it is called:(

      I had another look on line and think that my necklace might have been inspired by Victorian choker necklaces. By the way, CW has some good information on the history of Monet posted.

      Many thanks for your nice comments, Newfld and PhilDMorris:)

      It's the light chains and what looks like a lobster closure, that makes me think it's modern.
    8. freiheit freiheit, 3 years ago
      Hi nutsabotas6, I didn't pay any attention to the closure. What a mistake! Thanks for pointing this out. I found this quote on a site by Lustig Jewelers:

      "The history of this clasp is a storied one. Most Vintage & Antique Jewelry sources agree that Cartier introduced the teardrop style clasp in the late 1950's. It was later in the 1960's, when Italian gold became so popular in the US, that Americans were introduced to the more rectangular Lobster Clasp on a wide scale. Then, after 1990 it became more widely used on all jewelry regardless of country of origin"

      It is hard to see in the photo, but the clasps on my necklace is not a typical lobster clasp but it certainly has characteristics of one. For that reason, my necklace cannot date to the 40's! That's too bad. It also means that I have to search longer to find out more about it. But that's just fine by me because it makes collecting more interesting!

      Once again many thanks for your help, nutsabotas6:)

      Pretty items. I don't know how old they are either but they are very nicely made. :-)
