Sumptuous coiled goldtone cylinder beads with faceted aurora borealis opalescent milk glass beads pair in this wonderful semi flexible triple strand necklace and matching domed earrings set from Trifari, circa 1950s-1960s. Tightly fine coiled golden metal cylinder beads impart a Byzantine flavor, each separated with a faceted round white opalescent bead. The aurora borealis finish reflects unusual shades of green, yellow and pink. End bars are three finely textured fluted horns. The rose cut rhinestones in the earrings compliment bead color and finish and are wrapped with finely roped golden coils. All beads and rhinestones are glass. The necklace does not drape in the traditional manner. It is semi flexible. It's components are tightly strung so that the necklace strands can almost be "bent" or shaped to the wearer's discretion. Zigzag it, crumple it, kink it, twist it, smooth it out. Trifari lets you be the designer. A totally modern edge to vintage jewelry.
The set includes the three row necklace, top strand adjustable to about 16 inches with glass bead extension chain and hook style closure. The cylinder beads are approximately 10 millimeters x 4 millimeters. The necklace beads are about 5 millimeters. Clip earrings compliment at about 3/4 inch across with a 3/8 inch dome. Weight of the demi is approximately 94 grams.
Condition is excellent / pristine vintage. All components original and intact. All beads and rhinestones retain ab finish with wonderful opalescence, color and sheen. All cylinder beads and hardware retain goldtone finish. Strands appear to be secure and tight. ( Please be aware that if you like your necklaces to drape traditionally, this necklace is not for you. It is a "modern" vintage design that lets you decide how to display it.) Earring clips strong and secure. No damage / no repairs. As fresh and fashionable as when created. Pristine.
The necklace is signed on it's original hook: "TRIFARI" no copyright symbol. The necklace also retains it's original crowned "T" metal hangtag. Each original earring clip is signed: "TRIFARI" no copyright symbol. Please note that Trifari sometimes used "old stock" hardware (clips, hooks, etc.) without the copyright symbol on jewelry that was produced after 1954/55. Design, materials and construction suggest this set was created 1950s-mid 1960s.
