Monet jewellery has been made since the 1930s and it is still being made today. It is a high quality costume jewellery most normally it is gold or silver toned metal in bold shaped or with lots of chains. The aim of the Monet company was to produce pieces with a high quality fine jewellery finish and design at an affordable price The Monet jewellery company was originally American and the production of their jewellery was all in the USA until about 2000.
Whilst Monet jewellery is normally gold or silver tone metal in bold shapes occasionally you can find pieces with coloured enamel, pearls or glass stones set into it. Vintage Monet jewellery is still quite affordable compared with some other vintage designer jewellery
All Monet jewellery made ofter 1955 is stamped with the Monet trade mark.

Does any one have information on Jewellery made by Askew London? I believe that this was made by Sue Askew and was made during circa 1980s. The jewellery appears to be vintage in style, there are some wonderful 1920s revival pieces of Egyptian style brooches and necklaces and I also detect Haskel style influences. Other than that her Jewellery appears to be quite collectable fetching high prices on eBay.
Here is a super special Teddy vintage brooch made by Askew London :
Here is a very sweet Teddy Bear brooch which has an articulated head, arms and legs. This teddy brooch is such high quality that you can sit him down like an ornament if you like. Teddy measures almost 4 cms high
Recently I came across a designer who is re-cycling old brooches into wonderful and wearable new pieces.
Tayler Claudio is a jewelry designer who takes pride in reburbishing vintage items and making them anew. Her inspirations range from broken jewelry to things others consider trash. Often, she will find old brooches that people throw out and revamp them so that others can fall in love with them again. The picures show photos of her work with brooches.
