During his long tenure, working uninterruptedly from 1930 to 1968, Alfred Philippe's influence at Trifari cannot be overstated. He designed nearly all of Trifari's collections. Collaborators worked under his supervision. This extraordinary necklace, circa late 1940s when the Pat. Pend. mark was often used in addition to the Trifari name, features a refined and sophisticated design integrated with superior manufacturing techniques. One of Trifari's trademarks was its style of imitating precious jewelry to the most exacting standards. The necklace boasts lustrous, undulating goldtone links of sweeping vines embellished with silvertone faced, pave set rhinestone tulip caps. Mixing the silvertone metals with the goldtone was a specialty of Trifari's. The silvertone sections were often set with rhinestones, bringing out the stones' maximum brilliance. The necklace is constructed to fit beautifully about the neck. Even the foldover clasp is part of the design without a hint of it's utilitarian purpose.
The necklace measures a fixed approximate 14 inches with foldover clasp. Width is about 1/2 inch.
Condition is excellent vintage. All components intact. All rhinestones intact and brilliant. All goldtone finishes intact, front and back. Foldover clasp strong and secure. No damage / no repairs. Top notch materials and workmanship throughout.
The necklace is signed on it's original clasp with "Trifari". The reverse of one end link is also signed "Trifari" and "Pat. Pend.".
Elegant. Refined. Sophisticated. Trifari does it best. Consider this necklace when you're ready to remember.
