This beautiful Trifari bracelet was patented in 1953 by Alfred Philippe, and the patent is shown in one of the photos. It is as mint as anything that vintage can be. The red rhinestones are bright and sparkling as are the clear baguettes and tiny rhinestones in the band. The gold-tone plating shows no wear, and any dark spots are reflections from the camera, as the photos were taken in my office in the evening under lights. The bracelet is curved as is shown in the photos, so the measurements are as close as I can come. The width at the center is 1 and 1/2", and the length is approximately 7". It is curved to fit the wrist comfortably. I see no issues with this lovely piece. It is from a Maine estate and has been cared for carefully over the years. If you like the look of mid-century modern, this bracelet will make a lovely addition to your vintage jewelry collection and a wonderful bracelet to wear during the Christmas season!
