Crown Trifari Gilded Brutalist Statement Earrings, Signed, circa 1960

About

These stylish Brutalist-style clip-on statement earrings by Trifari (circa 1960) are a must-have for costume jewelry collectors. Truly a statement piece, these earrings are domed and gilded with an antiqued finish. Two Amber-colored glass cabochons sit atop each dome. Truly unique and on-trend with today's fashions! Trifari is a highly coveted costume jewelry brand, noted for high quality of construction and intricate details. This piece is signed Trifari on the back of each earring with a crown symbol over the "T" to signify the "Crown Trifari" era. This Mid-Century Modern example was produced during the Crown Trifari period of 1955 to 1969, regarded as their best years demonstrated through cutting edge design, craftsmanship and market dominance. Trifari Jewelry, established in 1910, is the namesake of its Naples Italy native founder, Gustavo Trifari who was born into a family of goldsmiths. Trifari's vision was in contrast to the period designs of Coco Chanel and others who were making big, bold statement pieces of costume jewelry. Trifari used an array of materials like rhinestones, coral, enamel, jade, and colored stones. Other costume jewelry designers like Kenneth Jay Lane, Renoir and Matisse, and Miriam Haskell designed jewelry with similarity to Trifari but the Trifari pieces stood out for their fine craftsmanship, unique designs, and overall understated beauty. Trifari designers were trained and worked for high-end and elite fine jewelry firms, as demonstrated by Alfred Philippe, their lead designer from 1930 to 1968. During this period of Trifari market dominance, Philippe introduced high level craftsmanship and invisible settings. Alfred Philippe taught other Trifari designers the same fine jewelry making techniques he learned at prestigious jewelry firms of Cartier and Van Cleef and Arpels. DETAILS: - Each earring is 1" in diameter - Each earring's depth measures 1" - Signed Trifari on each clip-on earring back - Circa 1960 CONDITION: This item is in excellent vintage condition and ready to be worn immediately.
