Alfred Philippe is recognized as one of the forces behind Trifari's success. First as a designer and later as head designer, he was employed with the company from the 1930s to the 1960s. The bracelet pictured, circa late 1940s to early 1950s was produced during some of his most productive years. It, as much of the jewelry created during this period, is beautifully designed and crafted and bears the unmistakable Philippe touch. Plated in luxurious rhodium, set with marquise, baguette and chaton rhinestones, even the foldover clasp is intricately paved with tiny chatons and a baguette tongue. The bracelet's center gracefully arches above the double row of baguettes, lending depth and dimension to this brilliant beauty.
The bracelet measures about 7 inches long with foldover clasp x 1 1/16 inches at it's widest point. Double rows of band are approximately 1/4 inch wide, combined. The center portion profiles to about 5/16 inch. The bracelet weighs approximately 20 grams.
Condition is excellent vintage. All components intact. All rhinestones intact and brilliant. All rhodium plate intact, front and back. All soldering secure. Foldover clasp strong and secure. No damage / no repairs. Please keep in mind that although in excellent vintage condition, the bracelet is from the 1940s-1950s and will not appear brand new.
The bracelet is signed on the reverse of the center section "TRIFARI". Clasp portion is signed "PAT. PEND.".
