Early Trifari displaying the KTF mark for Krussman, Trifari and Fishel presents a spectacular Art Deco bracelet, circa 1925-1937 designed by famed Alfred Philippe. Formerly employed at Cartier, much of Philippe's introductory work at Trifari shows strong ties to the French house. With the look of far more expensive jewelry his Deco pieces broke barriers between fine and faux. Gemstones were glass; diamonds, rhinestones. Costume jewelry was off and running.

The fully articulated seventeen link bracelet in rich rhodium plate showcases eight emerald cut, faceted art glass stones imitating fine emeralds. Each stone is unfoiled and open back set. Silvery boxes are soldered to each of the sides, housing a sparkling chaton rhinestone. These connections join pave set rhinestone oval / oblong links. A baguette accented fold over clasp secures.

The bracelet measures approximately 6 3/4 inches x nearly 1/2 inch wide (7/16 inch) with a 1/4 inch profile of height. Emerald cut stones are about 10 millimeters x 8 millimeters; baguette rhinestone, 6 millimeters x 3 millimeters. Weight of the bracelet is 18.1 grams.

Condition is excellent vintage. All components intact. All emerald colored glass stones free from cracks or breaks. All secure within heavy tab prongs. All connector links aligned and secure. No improper bends or pulls. All rhinestones intact, retaining sparkle. Some may have dimmed a bit, common on pieces of this age but presentation remains awesome. Rhodium plate intact, front and back. Fold over clasp strong and secure. Extremely clean. No damage / no repairs. Excellent vintage.

Reverse of center pave rhinestone link is signed "KTF" This mark was used from about 1925-1937. We believe the bracelet dates to around the late '20s-early '30s. Reverse of the pave rhinestone link closest to male end is stamped: "27" -- perhaps the stone setter's mark or even the year it was produced.

Philippe's Trifari. From Cartier to costume. Fine faux. At Cody's.
