He first produced designs for Cartier and Van Cleef & Arpels. Then Alfred Philippe became the head designer for Trifari. Certainly a lucky catch for the well-known jewelry company and all of its costume jewelry devotees.
This Philippe designed Trifari necklace is typical of his work in the late 1940s / early 1950s. The gold-plated necklace has a thick round snake chain and a centerpiece that curls up and over, dropping a clear 3/8 inch Austrian crystal dangle. It's very elegant in its simplicity.
The necklace measures 16 1/2 inches around and can be clasped from 14 to 16 inches with the fishhook clasp. It's marked TRIFARI inside the clasp. The width at center is 1 1/4 inches. The necklace is in excellent condition ... both the gold-tone metal and prong set crystals shine brightly.
