Monet Signed Silver Raindrop Earrings 1950s Vintage Jewelry
These signed Monet earrings are a very hard to find Mid Century Modern design from the early 1950s.
For just a few years, between 1952 and 1954, Monet made just a few Modern designs in necklaces, bracelets and earrings and these designs are very hard to find today. Not only do I strongly admire these futuristic designs, that were way ahead of their time, but the quality of the metals and craftsmanship is unlike anything Monet has made since.
Don't confuse the Modern designs from the late 1960s and early 1970s with these. The quality in later years is nothing like these from the early 1950s.
These earrings don't have a bonafide design name but I call them Silver Rain Drops. The earrings are paisley shaped and the small round circles look like a collection of water droplets. If you want this metal to look silver, it will look silver. If you want it to look gold, it will look gold. This heavy silver-gold chromium plating is extremely durable and has a high mirror finish. This particular finish was only used on Monet jewelry between 1952-1954.
The earrings are clips and they have Monet's patented pressure sensitive lever backs that can be adjusted for perfect tension. The earrings are not big or overwhelming. They are a medium size at 1 1/2" long x 1 1/8" wide. Both earrings are in pristine like new condition with no scratches, scuffs, or wear. The pair is perfectly clean as well. Both are signed Monet.
