This incredible Crown Trifari vintage parure is sensationally sparkly with glittering gold-tones and luscious ice-blues. The set comes in its original "Trifari" case and remains in near-mint condition.
Since its founding in 1910, the Trifari Jewelry Company has represented the utmost in quality and elegance. The company acquired Alfred Philippe in 1930, as their head designer.
This dazzling set consists of a necklace, bracelet and perfectly matching earrings.
The necklace is characterized by three strands of stylized acrylic ice-blue beads paired with fantastically textural and shiny gold-tone "nugget" beads.
Each strand is slightly longer than the last, giving the necklace a sensuous bib-style affect.
Each strand in the necklace is held by a "knotted" gold-tone component which fastens with a simple hook and loop clasp.
One end of the necklace features an extender chain accented with more of the shimmering ice-blue beads.
You will find the "Trifari" hallmark stamped on the reverse of the gold-tone hook.
The bracelet is the ideal match to the necklace, featuring three strands of ice-blue beads paired with the wonderfully tactile shimmering gold-colored beads.
It features the same gold-tone components as the necklace and joins with a classic fold-over clasp.
The fold-over clasp features the "Crown Trifari" stamp which dates from the 1940s.
Finally, each earring is characterized by a round cluster of 7 ice-blue beads punctuated by gold-tone nuggets.
They feature comfortable hinge-clips on the reverse, both of which exhibit the "Crown Trifari" stamp.
The original box has a dark-blue exterior and features the crowned Trifari "T" embossed on the lower right-hand corner of the lid in brilliant gold.
The interior is lined with divine white satin and features clips and a bracelet mold to keep the parure stored perfectly. Two original "Crown Trifari" black and gold paper tags are included inside the box.
There is a printed inscription on the underside of the lid that reads "Jewels by Trifari". The box shows some wear on the interior and exterior, but remains in good condition overall.
With almost no visible wear, this set remains in spectacular, near-mint condition.
The avid collector of vintage Crown Trifari will recognize this dazzling set as a must-have!
