Trifari's winter whites morph into summer with ease. Gorgeous faceted cone shaped cracked ice givre glass beads pair with egg shell white free forms to compose this delightful duet. Add Trifari's expertise at balance and arrangement and you have one harmonious hit.
Trifari's access to the best materials, designs, and workmanship shows big time in this three piece glass bead necklace, bracelet and earrings parure. In the necklace and bracelet the expensive, graduated givre (think marbled) faceted clear glass cones are infused with white swirls. They are interspersed with graduated free form beads in a glossy egg shell finish. At various intervals, tiny gold tone metal beads space. Leafy matte gold tone end bars tie it all together. Clip earrings complete the set with a mix of the complementing beads affixed to gold tone filigree backs.
The parure includes the double row necklace, it's top strand adjustable to about 15 inches with beaded extension chain and hook style closure. Bottom row drapes to approximately 16 inches; the triple strand bracelet, at approximately 7 1/2 inches long with fold over clasp x 1 1/2 inches wide and the clip earrings, at about 1 1/4 inches x 1 1/8 inches with a 1/2 inch profile. Largest givre beads are approximately 11 millimeters x 9 millimeters -- largest free forms, about 12 millimeters x 8 millimeters. Weight of this all glass and metal set is a generous approximate 164 grams.
