There's so much history to Trifari Jewellery. In early 1930, Alfred Philippe joined as head designer. He's considered a top master craftsman in fine jewellery for Cartier and Van Cleef and Arpels.
His designs became very popular, especially the well-known designs known as fruit salad (also known as Tutti Frutti) jewellery. The company was run from 1910 to 1975 by the originating founders and sons of those founders. Early Trifari Jewellery is very collectable, and some pieces are now very rare to find.
Mint - presents as brand new. Good - moderate evident wear, visible scratches and marks.You have the opportunity to make this vintage treasure yours. Unless the item is listed as a'new' item, evidence of normal age/use should be expected. The photos on our listings are never stock photos as we take all of our own photos, so what you see is what you get. Please look over your desired item closely before purchasing. Now, we mostly sell vintage jewellery and "new old stock" that has never been worn, that come out of various estates. This means that it has been pre-owned. That means that it could have some light wear, and possibly some tarnish. IF there are any flaws, such as missing stones, or damaged stones, we will definitely make that clear in the listing description. We just need our customers to understand that we generally do not sell brand new items. Our shop has a good working knowledge of vintage jewellery, as most of what we sell has been pre-owned and will thus have some form of wear. We cannot possibly cover every detail in a listing, and will thus describe the listings as best as we can. For example, shades of blue are subjective and so are concepts of what looks "too good" to be vintage, or what is "too worn" to be acceptable to a collector, as everyone has their own tastes. If you have specific needs, do your part, and contact me.
We do not normally clean many of our vintage items as most antique jewellery collectors and enthusiasts prefer that they are kept with the integrity of the piece and patina that occurs naturally over time.
