Vintage Late 1970's Kunio Matsumoto for Trifari Faux Pearls and Leaves Necklace Earrings Set.
This is a gorgeous demi designed by Kunio Matsumoto for Trifari. The necklace is comprised of large faux pearls and faux black onyx beads strung along both sides of the neck chain.....ending in two leaf bracelets that suspend a center pendant piece..... set with a large oval faux mabe pearl wrapped in a vine or branch motif and two black enamel leaves....finished with two bezel set rhinestones. Matching earrings are pierced post style. Gold tone finish setting.
Earrings are both signed Trifari and Kunio Matsumoto on the backs. Necklace is signed Trifari on the back of one of the leaf brackets. There is a tiny hole on the back of the necklace in the center of the faux mabe pearl (possibly where a signature plaque was once in place?).
Necklace measures 19 inches long. Pendant piece measures 1-1/2 inches high by 2 inches wide. Large faux pearls measure 11 millimeters in size. Earrings measure 1 inch high by 7/8 inch wide.
Earrings are currently without backs. Earrings would probably be best paired with the disc type backs for stabilization but could be paired with any earring back or clutch of your choice. Very good vintage condition. Great!
