Beautiful pastel colors accented with a red aurora borealis rhinestone, interesting and striking effect. Signed Crown Trifari copyright "©" from the late 1950s. Pastels are back in vogue and this vintage set by Trifari is sure to compliment any outfit. Likely a design by Alfred Philippe. The necklace has an adjustable "J" hook and the earrings are clip style, set in gold Trifarium plating.

Size: Necklace: 16 inches; Clip Earrings: 1 inch; Condition: Very Good; Circa: Late 1950s

Considered a "founding father" of costume jewelry, the Trifari jewelry brand was created by Gustavo Trifari Sr. and Leo F. Krussman in 1918 and later added a third partner, Carl Fishel. In 1930 Trifari hired Alfred Philippe as head designer, and that is when the company really began to take off. Philippe’s background designing very high end fine jewelry for firms like Cartier and Van Cleef and Arpels brought a wonderful sense of luxury and style to the company. Pieces by Phillipe are highly sought after and have recently increased in price. Trifari ceased production in 1999.
