Avon was created by David H. McConnell in 1886 in the United States, it was the first brand to develop the door-to-door concept, allowing thousands of women to leave their homes to work and emancipate themselves by supporting their own needs.
Specialized in perfumes, she began in 1963 to offer jewelry to the best customers and released her first collection of costume jewelry in 1970.
Having survived several takeovers, the brand has gone global and is still in business.

Created in 1929 byJay Brothers & Michael Chernow, Monet began by producing handbags, it was in 1935 that the brand launched into the quality costume jewelery sector by offering vermeil or gold-plated jewelery at low prices between 4 and 20 $.
But it is thanks to the invention of the CLIP with friction (the most modern and widespread version) in 1947 then to that of the "nail" for pierced ears that Monet revolutionized the jewelry industry.
The brand enjoyed great success in the years it was sold under license to YSL and in the 1980s the two brands joined forces to produce the fashion house's jewelry.
It is also the first brand to sign all its pieces.
The Monet brand continues to produce jewelry today.
