Striated and marbled oblong and round beads in myriad shades of green, capped with brass tone crowns, comprise Trifari's early '50s vintage double strand necklace, triple row bracelet and button style clip earrings set. Beads are reminiscent of agates with exemplary banding, mottling and marbling throughout. Whether Trifari worked with rhinestones, enamel, Lucite, Trifanium, beads -- virtually any material -- it did so with the intention of creating a superior product. Colors were always a bit brighter, rhinestones a tad more brilliant, enamels more vibrant and beads -- well check them out for yourself. Masters at make believe, Trifari's faux often outfoxes fine.
The set includes the double strand necklace with graduated oblong beads, it's top strand adjustable to about 17 inches with charmed extension chain and hook closure. Bottom strand drapes about 2 inches longer. Largest oblong beads are about 25 millimeters x 11 millimeters Triple strand bracelet, with variously sized oblong beads, is approximately 7 1/4 inches long with fold over clasp. When beads are placed side by side, width is about 1 1/4 inches. Completing the parure are button style clip earrings, wired with complimenting round beads. They measure about 1 inch across with a 1/2 inch profile or height. Largest center round beads are about 10 millimeters. Weight of the necklace, bracelet and earrings set is approximately 98 grams.
