Monet was founded in 1927 as Monocraft by brothers Michael and Joseph Chernow to capitalize on the popularity of monogramming. They developed a process for metal monogramming first for autos and later for handbags. Late in the 30s they began to produce jewelry monograms such as watch fobs. The true Monet that we know today came from their hiring of Edmond Mario Granville. Coming Monocraft with a background in fine jewelry from Cartier, Granville remained the company’s sole designer until the late 1950s and was executive designer until his death in 1969. His leadership would span the company’s humble beginnings as Monocraft to its eventual acclaim as Monet. The company passed through several owners and was purchased by Liz Claiborne in 2000. Monet Group, which includes Trifari and Marvella like so many other grand names in CJ was moved out of the country and produces much lesser quality.
Condition: Very minor wear on metal commensurate with age. Enamel is intact.

Pierre Cardin was at the height of his powers in the 1960s & 1970s, designing some of the most futuristic jewelry, clothing & hats of the era. He was known for using geometric and bubble shapes that often looked more like art than practical fasion. Born in Italy in 1922, Cardin grew up in France and starting apprenticing as a tailor's apprentice at age 14. Cardin moved to Paris in 1945. There, he studied architecture and worked with fashion designer Paquin after World War II. The then worked with Elsa Schiaparelli until he became head of design at Christian Dior. Cardin founded his own haute couture house in 1950. His career was launched when he designed about 30 of the costumes for "the party of the century", a masquerade ball in Venice on 3 September 1951. He was one of the first couture designers to create a ready-to-wear line. He also was a trailblazer in licensing his name for products such as perfume, automobiles and using his logo on accessories and furniture. Cardin eventually overexposed his brand through that licensing and it fell out of favor in the 1990s. He has retaken control of his branding and has reemerged with new designs plus a renovation of the ruins of the castle in Lacoste, Vaucluse that was once inhabited by the Marquis de Sade.

Millefiori is a glasswork technique which produces distinctive decorative patterns on glassware. The term is a combination of the Italian words "mille" (thousand) and "fiori" (flowers). The millefiori technique involves the production of glass canes or rods, known as murrine, with multicolored patterns which are viewable only from the cut ends of the cane. A murrine rod is heated in a furnace and pulled until thin while still maintaining the cross section's design. It is then cut into beads or discs when cooled.
