Parisian jewelry Louis Rousselet (1892-1980) was known for his glass and Galalith beadwork and pearls.  His business grew into one of the largest bead suppliers in the world and workers trained for years to learn his techniques.  Rousselet was a true artist creating new types and innovative designs for glass beads and pearls.  His work appeared in the boutiques of Coco Chanel as well as Jaques Fath and Piere Balmain.  His jewelry was worn by many celebrities including movie and theater stars.  His daughter continued on with the business which eventually closed in the 1970s.   Most of his jewelry was unsigned and came with a paper tag.  His components and findings are unique and recognizable. Signed pieces are very rare.

    This 1970s Egyptian-style necklace is an absolute stunner.  14 bright gold snake chains with a large center rectangle of gold.  Inset is a large oval of faux amber. The center section is thick adding some very interesting dimension to this chocker.  Extender chain with hook closure. 

    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 to Monocraft with a background in fine jewelry from Cartier, Granville remained the company’s sole designer until the late 1950s and was an 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 brand names in CJ was moved out of the country and produces much lesser quality.
