Often overlooked and underestimated, vintage Monet produced some top notch designs with excellent quality materials and workmanship. Offered is an example of one of it's higher end three piece parures, circa 1950s-1960s, constructed in a heavy gold tone plated metal. Finely textured plumes adorn the link bracelet and necklace and domed and fan dangled clip earrings. The set, together since it's creation, is further enhanced by it's excellent / near pristine vintage condition.
The parure includes the necklace, adjustable to about 16 inches x 1 inch with charmed extension chain and hook style closure; the bracelet, at approximately 7 inches x 1 inch with fold over clasp and detachable safety chain and the tension control dangle clip earrings, at about 1 1/2 inches x 1 inch at their widest. (These are the clips with the patented "press shut" closure rather than snap shut mechanism that helps alleviate the pinch.) Weight of the three piece parure is a substantial 174 grams.
Condition is excellent / near pristine vintage. All components intact. All gold tone finish intact, front and back. (The reverse has a smooth, burnished gold tone finish -- similar to what Trifari used on some of it's 1940s-1950s "Pat. Pend." era pieces. No rubs or wear through. All links aligned and secure. All clasps and closures secure. Bracelet safety chain strong and secure. Earring clips retain tight rivet hinge construction, ensuring secure closure without the pressure of a traditional clip. All hardware / embellishments -- hangtags, extension charm, jump rings, hook, etc., are original and intact. Extremely clean. No damage / no repairs.
All pieces are signed. The necklace on it's metal hangtag: "Monet" with reverse bearing the copyright symbol. The bracelet on it's fold over clasp: "MONET" and hangtag: "Monet" with copyright symbol on it's reverse. Each clip earring on reverse of domed top: "MONET" with it's clip also stamped: "PAT'D." Design, material, construction and overall presentation, in conjunction with it's identifying marks, date this set circa 1956-early 1960s.
