A perfect example of why Trifari stands out in the crowd. Intricate golden mesh coil work interfaces beautifully with both brushed or Florentine finished outer rings and tassel tips (finials) as well as highly polished inner rings in this '60s vintage fleur de lis fixed lariat style necklace and earrings set. Bilateral mesh coil necklace ropes lace under and oval the fleur de lis medallion culminating in finial style tipped tassels. Matching clip earrings mimic the fleur de lis medallion motif san the mesh roping. Finish work is top notch Trifari from the expert coil work to high quality metal plating and precise construction. The Trifari family's highly regarded reputation in jewelry making followed them from Italy to the United States in the early 1900s where they remained on the "Who's Who" list of top costume jewelers in the country for generations.
The set presented includes the necklace with a wearable length of about 24 inches with spring ring clasp. The pendant portion provides an additional approximate 5 1/2 inches for a total length of about 29 1/2 inches. Maximum width is about 1 3/4 inches. Door knocker style clip earrings are approximately 1 1/2 inches x 1 1/8 inches. Weight of the necklace and earrings set is about 68 grams. A note about photos: The tassels on the necklace suspend straight -- they are arranged curled to better fit photo formatting.
