Crown Trifari Gilded Starburst Mid Century Modern Earrings, Signed, circa 1950s

About

Gorgeous gold-plated clip-on earrings by Trifari, circa 1950s. Trifari is a highly collected costume jewelry brand, noted for its quality and intricate details. These mid-century modern examples were produced during the Crown Trifari period of 1955 to 1969, which is 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: - Gold-plated - Signed Crown Trifari on back of each earring - Clip-on earring backs - Each earring measures approx 1.1" x 1" - Circa 1950s CONDITION: Excellent vintage condition, ready to be worn and enjoyed immediately.
