Trifari 'Alfred Philippe' Giant Square Cut Sapphire Starburst Brooch & Earrings Set
This magnificent early 1950's set was designed by Trifari's premiere designer of all time, Alfred Philippe, formerly a fine jeweler trained by Cartier of France. This book piece set is shown on page 198 of Angie Gordon's book, "20th Century Costume Jewelry". The large-than-life starburst brooch boasts a massive sapphire blue stone (29mm X 23mm), bezel set in shiny, rhodium plated silver tone, surrounded by rays of clear baguettes. The earrings mirror the same design in miniature.
Brooch measures 2.25" X 1.75" inches and the each earring measures 7/8" X 3/4" of an inch. Back of clip earrings are hallmarked "Trifari" and "DESIGN PAT. PEND.". Back of brooch is hallmarked "Trifari" with the crown over the letter "T" without the copyright symbol, dating these to before 1955. Excellent condition. Pretty pristine!!
Gender: Female, Age Group: Adult, Color: sapphire blue, clear, silver, Size: L
