Exquisite bracelet with blue moonstone and deep ruby red glass cabochons, accented with green enamel work and diamante crystal rhinestones. KTF stands for Krussman, Trifari and Fishel and is an early mark for jewelry done by Trifari in 1925 to the early 1930s, when the chief designer Alfred Phillipe first came to Trifari. Highly collectible and a gorgeous piece to wear, this is a special bracelet. Measures just over 7 inches long and in very good condition.
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.
