Jewelry Find of the Week - Trifari Full Parure

One of my favorite designers of Vintage Jewelry is Trifari. The pieces are gorgeous, well made and truly pass the test of time.

The Trifari Jewelry Company dates back to 1910 when Gustavo Trifari, an Italian immigrant formed a company called Trifari & Trifari with his uncle, Ludovico Trifari. The firm's name changed over the next few years as different designers joined the company. The 1930s - 1950s was a period of high quality design when Alfred Phillipe was the lead designer.

Trifari grew into the second largest manufacturer of costume jewelry, with only Coro exceeding its production. Trifari pieces are marked with several hallmarks: a crown above T, the letters TKF, or simply Trifari. Early marks can also be found with the words "Trifari, Krussman & Fishel."

I have recently aquired a full set from Trifari jewelry which is just lovely. The set consists of a necklace, a matching pendant necklace and a pair of pierced earrings - all set with a stunning combination of purple, pink, blue and green lucite cabochons in a goldtone setting.

And if you read my blog a few days ago about the colors for spring being forecast, just compare these colors to my chart. Even though the pieces are vintage, they are perfectly in style - as far as the colors go.

This lovely Trifari full parure is available from the Trifari Vintage Jewelry Line on my Vintage Jewelry Lane Site. Priced at only $75.99, it can be yours today!
