The Details...

This brushed silver tone necklace features a series of 'leaves' with open-work details. The necklace is adjustable and fastens with a 'hook' through a 'long and short link chain'. The chain ends in a 'ball' charm. The necklace is signed - 'TRIFARI' and a copyright symbol is engraved into the back of the hook. The 'Crown Trifari' charm (a signature of many of their necklaces) is also suspended from the adjustable chain. The necklace measures between 35cm and 40cm in length.

A Short History...

From the 1950s, Trifari produced jewellery in brushed metals as a means of meeting a demand for costume jewellery that could be worn in the day time. The pieces were a great contrast to the rhinestone encrusted cocktail jewellery intended for wear after the sun had set. Trifari had observed a gap in the market and filled it. Their jewellery for daywear sold in huge numbers. Trifari's pared down, no-flash designs could be worn by working women - imagine a typing pool adorned in silver tone - and housewives alike - think of Betty Draper serving Don his steak in her faux pearls. 

Wear it With...

Embrace Trifari's pioneering asthetic of costume jewellery for day time and pair this necklace with a white t-shirt, black blazer, grey skinny jeans and a pair of glow white Converse. This necklace is apt for the most special of occasions too - the silver tone makes it ideal for pairing with a bridal gown.
