Gold plated set signed TRIFARI© with crown over the “T”.
This set dates from the 50’s to 60’s and is in absolute wonderful condition. Set features a most unusual and pretty rare design – Orbs that are not perfectly round, having large smooth bumps and incised etchings done in a very fine pebble finish, contrasting ,yet blending in with the smooth lines of each orb. Beads are in graduated sizes ranging from about 1/4" up to 3/4" in diameter. This is a long necklace –measuring 25-1/2”. Each end is very finely detailed and deeply etched where the fold over clasp is attached.
Completing this stunning set is a pair of dangling large orb earrings. Orbs are suspended from a slightly domed deeply etched flower like pinwheel. They are the same size as the largest center orb in the necklace and measure 1-1/2” in total length.
All three pieces are signed TRIFARI with the signature crown above the ‘T’ and the copyright symbol dating his set from 1955 on. This fabulous set makes quite a statement – and yes, it looks even better and more luscious than my photos show. It will never go out of style. It a true classy classic beauty. Would look fabulous on Black! The gold plating done by Trifari was eight times thicker than industries standards.
