Considered a "founding father" of costume jewelry, the Trifari jewelry brand goes back all the way to 1918, and was created by Gustavo Trifari Sr. and Leo F. Krussman in 1918. They eventually 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.
This beautiful set features montana blue sapphire and aqua rhinestones accented with pavè set crystal ribbons. All pieces are set in a shiny rhodium-plated metal finish. They are signed and in excellent condition.
