In excellent condition, the bracelet measures 2.5 inches across the opening and almost 1 inch in width.
It has a safety catch for added security. Easily fits 6-7 inch wrist size. Marked with the Crown Trifari C on the back. The Jewels of India line was introduced in 1965, two years before Alfred Philippe retired as head designer at Trifari. Considered a "founding father" of costume jewelry, the Trifari jewelry brand was created by Gustavo Trifari Sr.Krussman in 1918 and later added a third partner, Carl Fishel. In 1930 Trifari hired Alfred Philippe as head designer, and that is when the company really began to take off. Philippes background designing very high-end fine jewelry for firms like Cartier and Van Cleef and Arpels brought a wonderful sense of luxury and style to the company. Pieces by Philippe are highly sought after and have recently increased in price. Trifari ceased production in 1999. I live in a smoke free home. Tab in the item description.
