This is so lovely on! A multi-chain gold-tone Trifari necklace. 5 rows each with 5 chains of varying link sizes. The clasp has the Trifari T hang tag with a crown probably dating to 1960s.
Trifari jewellery is at the high-end in the world of costume jewellery. Established in 1910 in America by an Italian, Gustavo Trifari and his uncle. Superb craftsmanship set it apart and in 1930 Alfred Philippe, who had previously worked for a company that produced jewellery for Cartier, became the chief designer – it became overwhelmingly popular and is highly collectable.
