In 1910, he partnered with his uncle and founded his first firm Trifari & Trifari to produce high quality costume jewelry. Two year later Gustavo went on his own and formed Trifari which he operated as owner and designer until 1917 when Leo Krussman joined the company as sales manager. The company Trifari and Krussman was incorporated in 1918, and after top salesman Carl Fishel joins the company in 1923 the name is changed to Trifari, Krussman, and Fishel.
The 1930s were a period of outstanding production for Trifari with Alfred Phillipe as their lead designer, formerly of Cartier and Van Cleef & Arpels. Under his imaginative leadership and with runaway successes such as the 1941 "crown" pin, Trifari grew to become the second largest U. Alfred Phillipe stayed with the company until 1968. With these diverse design contributions, Trifari produced an incredibly wide array of styles at all different price levels, but they all enjoy the excellent craftsmanship which Gustavo learned from his grandfather. Most Trifari pieces are marked with a crown above the "T", or in variations "TKF" or "Trifari, Krussman & Fishel".NECKLACE MEASURES 24 LONG WITH A LOVELY TEXTURED CLASP. By 1 WIDE AT CENTER.
