Gustavo Trifari emigrated from Italy to the U.S. in 1904 and founded Trifari NYC in 1910. Trifari was considered one of the largest and best known producers of costume jewelry. It started producing hair ornaments, buckles, and bar pins in silver and base metals set with rhinestones and later manufactured, a broad range of costume jewelry creating superb designs and workmanship at different price levels. The Trifari jewelry produced had a distinctive look, resembling fine jewelry, which can easily be recognized by collectors. Much of this is due to the work of a great designer, Alfred Philippe, who used high quality imported Swarovski rhinestones that were hand-set in the jewelry piece. Philippe worked as a designer of fine jewelry for Cartier and Van Cleef & Arpels, and brought to Trifari many imaginative ideas. He is largely responsible for the creation and development of Trifari’s distinctive and classic look. Here we present Trifari’s beautiful faux seed pearl stretch bracelet which is light and would travel well or make an excellent gift. It is made with elastic so that it slips over the wrist and wears very comfortably while looking absolutely amazing!
