Welcome…to my blog on Monet Jewelers!
After nearly four years of research I accumulated a lot of information about Monet Jewelers. All of it of course is in my book Monet the Master Jewelers. There were however, tidbits here and there, as well as a great deal of old advertisements and old pictures that just couldn’t be included in the book. With 6oo photos already in the book, adding more would have really taken it over the top. So, many of those extra photos as well as some “fun facts” will be frequently posted here for all Monet fans to enjoy.
Researching this book was a lot of fun for me; I had the opportunity of meeting so many interesting people, and a lot of former “Monettes”. The one thing that truly stands out for me about all those interviews and long conversations was how much people really LOVED talking about Monet, you could hear in their voices and just see it on their faces,…it must have been an amazing company to be a part of.
I look forward to your comments or any special “Monet Moments” you may want to share with all of us, so feel free to write or friend us on facebook…and of course enjoy the book!
The long anticipated book on the history of Monet costume jewelry, Monet…the Master Jewelers is now available for ordering through Amazon.com.
In this the first and only book to date on this hugely successful and enduring company, all of the facts and “behind the scenes” stories are based on interviews with family members, friends and former employees as well as long lost interviews with the Chernow brothers themselves.
Filled with 600 photographs and lots of vintage newspaper and magazine advertisements this book is a real “must have” for anyone who loves vintage jewelry.
