The Monet line includes a variety of typical jewelry styles, including necklaces, bracelets, brooches, and both traditional and clip-on earrings. Pieces from the line often feature large, colorful stones in metal settings. The stones may be faceted or smooth. Some pieces feature faceted glass or epoxy stones, while others include real gemstones. The line's extensive selection of drop earrings often feature these focal stones.
The Monet line includes vivid hints of season-appropriate colors such as black, amber, coral, turquoise and deep blue. The collection features both gold- and silver-tone settings.
In addition to drop earrings, Monet specializes in fashion-forward statement necklaces. These substantial pieces often feature numerous stones which hang from large-link chain or dangle to create a collar or bib effect. As of fall 2015, examples of Monet statement necklaces include the Gold-Tone Topaz-Colored Y Necklace, the Aqua and Marcasite Shower Necklace and the Purple Passion Drop Collar Necklace.
Prices for the Monet jewelry line range from $18 to $48.Learn more about Jewelry & Watches
