Egyptian Revival, Trifari style. An immensely popular line, inspired by Elizabeth Taylor's recently released movie, Trifari's "Cleopatra" allowed all to be queen for a day. Circa 1960s, the four piece grand parure or suite is comprised of brushed / satin finish golden Trifanium. White pearlescent beads / cabochons add that royal touch. Necklace, bracelet and brooch / pendant have links / castings of matte goldtone ribbed domes with golden roped connections / accents throughout. Necklace and brooch have pineapple or pear shaped dangles / castings. Bracelet center links are marquise shaped. Earrings compliment with cabochon beads and roping. While a single piece of Trifari's "Cleopatra" line is sought after, locating a four piece set, together since birth, in this pristine condition is an especially rare treat.
The suite includes the collar style link necklace, adjustable to about 15 1/2 inches x 13/16 inch with charmed extension chain and hook style closure. Faux pearl beads are approximately 7 millimeters; the link bracelet at about 7 inches x 1 1/8 inches with foldover clasp; the combination brooch / pendant at about 3 inches x 1 3/4 inches at it's widest point with a 3/8 inch profile. The dangling brooch has a concealed hook on reverse so it may also be used as a pendant on your favorite chain or complimenting bead strand. Clip earring complete the suite, at about 7/8 inch across. Weight of the four piece parure is a generous approximate 152 grams.
Condition is excellent / pristine vintage. The set appears unworn / unused. All components original and intact. All golden Trifanium finish intact, front and back of all pieces. All beads / cabs intact with no chips, nicks, cracks, or breaks. All white pearlescent bead finish intact. No stains or discoloration.
