In it's newly minted golden Trifanium finish, Trifari's '60s vintage buckle brooch and huggy style clip earrings showcase the metal's ability to display a variety of the highest quality finishes. Florentine, satin, brushed, burnished and lustrous were a few of the treatments used in either Platinum or gold toned Trifanium. The set presented utilizes etched line, finely stippled and smooth golden finishes. Truly a testament to Trifari's expertise in the metal plating process.
The set includes the stylize oval belt and buckle brooch complete with hasp and pointed excess. Matching huggy style clip earrings' buckle fits over the front of the ear while belt excess hugs lobe back. Who but Trifari could take the utilitarian belt and transform it into a smart, sophisticated jewelry set. Quality of design, materials, and construction are typical high caliber. Indeed, Trifari's premium "daytime" or bridge jewelry was ever bit as carefully planned and executed as it's glittery evening accessories. Quite simply, Trifari always seemed one step ahead of the competition.
