This vintage Trifari necklace, bracelet, pin and earrings grand parure has an atomic, MCM design and the glorious electric blue marquise rhinestones are mesmerizing. This very rare suite is set with special effect Swarovski rhinestones that combine the reflective qualities of meridian blue, volcano and heliotrope aurora borealis rhinestones and they are simply magical. Kaleidoscopic flashes of turquoise, teal, blue, purple, pink, green, topaz and gold bounce off the rhinestones in a never ending explosion of color. The Mid Century Modern design is awesome, as meteoric in style as the stones are in color and the silvery rhodium Trifanium plated settings and diamante rhinestone chaton accents are the perfect compliments. The pin is huge and reminds me of a shooting star, the center a molten mass of color with a tail that glows silver with clear rhinestone points. The necklace measures 16 inches, the bracelet measures 7 inches, the brooch measures 2.50 inches by 1.75 inches and the clip earrings measure 1 inch. This wonderful suite of jewelry is in excellent vintage condition and I'm very comfortable calling it near mint. Each piece is signed Trifari with the copyright symbol. This dazzling grand parure is a treat for the senses, it's bold and showy, it defines eye candy.
