I have collected vintage costume jewelry for over 25 years, and have some fabulous pieces/sets. I will be listing most of them in the next months/years (however long it takes to pare down my extensive collection).Please keep an eye on my listings, as some wonderful items will be for sale. This is a rare bracelet that is one of my most treasured pieces.
It is signed on the back of one end, "Trifari" (with the crown over the T), and below it Pat. It is an Alfred Philippe bracelet, which means the best of the best. Trifari jewelry pieces have historically been highly coveted by collectors worldwide, especially the Philippe designs.The patent was dated October 22, 1940, and the patent number is Des. It is called "Pave' Red Enamel and Rubies Floral Bracelet". These old, rare pieces are becoming harder and harder to find.
Crown Trifari "Alfred Philippe" Bracelet. "Trifari" and "Pat Pend" on back of the bracelet's clasp I just couldn't seem to photograph it clearly in my pictures, but it IS there. Please enlarge Pic #4 for the signature. STONES/COLORS: Brilliant ruby red open-backed oval rhinestones in 2 different sizes, surrounded by scrolled dark red enamel accents, and a myriad of tiny clear pave'-set rounds in more than one size.
All of this glitter is set in a beautiful floral design, in very shiny rhodium plated metal. S a sturdy clasp and a working safety chain. METAL COLOR: Shiny rhodium plating.CONDITION/FLAWS: Beautiful condition with very little to either stones or metal. I have scoured this piece with magnification, and can find only 2 of the tiniest clear round stones. It is extremely hard to notice them, and It just looks amazing, like it was never worn. There is a little wear on each clasp end, on the backs, from activity, I suppose. Just an amazing bracelet in remarkable condition. I will definitely miss this one!
