Vintage silver tone necklace, with a beautiful black lucite and diamanté pendant, circa 1970s. Stamped Trifari on the reverse of the pendant and the clasp.
The Art Deco style pendant measures 4.8cm / 1.9 inches, graduating to 2.8cm / 1.1 inches. The diamanté chain is length 61cm / 24 inches.
Overall condition is very good, though the pendant reverse shows a few marks of age. This is a quality Trifari statement necklace.
Trifari was born in Naples, Italy, but emigrated to New York in 1902. Gustavo Trifari began his own jewellery business in 1918 when he met Leo Kraussman. They were joined by Carl Fishel, in 1925. In 1975 the company was bought by Hallmark, and since then has been taken over by several companies. In 2000 production was finally moved overseas which brought an end to high quality signed Trifari jewellery.
