This gorgeous, sparkling pair of earrings is from the highly collectible, sought after 1949 Trifari Snowflake line. I have never seen this design in silvertone before, only in gold tone., rare indeed. This patented design is a Trifari classic, made as part of a series which included 2 necklace styles, a bracelet, earrings, and a larger and smaller brooch. Signed Trifari Pat. Pend. with the crown over the T. The snowflake design is so very pretty and brilliant, with both clear round faceted chatons and baguette rhinestones in the shiny silver tone setting. This fabulous pair of clip earrings is very sturdy and wonderfully lustrous, made to last. They measure 7/8 of an inch across. A very feminine design, in beautiful condition for its age, with just the slightest hint of vintage patina. All the stones are brilliant and clear, and the clips are in proper working order. Designed by Alfred Philippe; Trifari’s best known designer, the design patent is from September 12, 1949, number 155214. This marvelous design has been featured in Ann Pittman's book, INSIDE THE JEWELRY BOX, as well as Julia Carroll's COLLECTING COSTUME JEWELRY 202 BOOK, page 178. I have also included an ad I came across from a 1949 Christmas ad campaign that includes the snowflake design. A classic and very collectible beauty that has withstood the test of time, so very lovely!
