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, to immediate great successes. 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.
The advertisement in the last picture is of the "Fascination" line of jewelry from 1958. It came in red and in a blue. This lovely dangle bracelet and earring set ifs from that line. So fun, colorful and well made! Excellent condition all around.
