Can you say 'wow'?! We are very pleased to be offering this 1953 Alfred Philippe Crown Trifari necklace from the outstanding Comet series the company produced with their trademark 'Trifanium' metal and baguette rhinestones. Alfred Philippe was known as an innovator and ahead of his time. His pieces remain highly sought after by collectors worldwide. See the original advertisement in the photos attached -- timeless, glamorous, and tres, tres chic!
The necklace measures 14 1/2 inches and can be extended to 16 1/2 inches with the J hook closure. The pendant is signed 'TRIFARI' with the crown over the 'T', indicating this is among the finest and most collectible pieces Trifari produced. The piece says 'PAT PEND', and research indicates the patent was since issued August 19, 1953.
This piece is near mint, showing just minor wear to the Trifanium -- incredible after 60 years, which is a testament to the quality craftsmanship and enduring style of Trifari. It will be an heirloom to pass on to future generations, and will no doubt be just as stylish and elegant in another 60 years. Amazing, fashion-forward design and beauty!
