1960's Crown Trifari Signed Necklace 1960's Crown Trifari Signed Necklace

£30.00

Mid Century 1960's Crown Trifari gold chain necklace that has the most elegant drape and looks particularly fetching against a black top.

A true vintage piece that has the hang tag associated with this very sought after costume jewellery brand.

Features double strands on either side connected to a further five strands via single large links. Closes with a sprung ring catch.

Despite being decades old this beautiful necklace still has a fresh contemporary look.

History snippet:

Founded in 1910 by Gustavo Trifari, the son of an Italian goldsmith, the company went onto create jewels worn by Hollywood stars and famous names such as Mamie Eisenhower (34th First Lady) who wore a specially commissioned pearl necklace for the Inaugural Ball 1953.

Between 1930 and 1968, Trifari's chief designer was Alfred Philippe, who had expertly crafted fine jewellery for Van Cleef and Arpels and devised a technique for setting stones in 'invisible' mounts that are often seen (or rather, not seen) on Trifari pieces.

During the 1950s / 60s, the Crown Trifari hang tag was often used on necklaces rather than engraving the actual pieces with the Trifari logo.

In the competitive world of 20th Century costume jewellery, Trifari even created its own non-tarnishing, gold tone alloy named Trifanium. Over the years the firm created series of designs that would tap into the zeitgeist, including jewellery inspired by the coronation of HM Queen Elizabeth II.

Trifari became part of the Monet Group in the 90s, itself acquired by Liz Claiborne in 2000, but has a fascinating history overall, too much to list here, and is well worth checking out.

Delivery: U.K. mainland, delivery included. International, please see the shipping calculator in your shopping cart.

All vintage items have been pre-used, unless stated otherwise, and may have gentle signs of wear.
