Superb Vintage 1960’s choker necklace by famous costume designer Trifari. Gustavo Trifari, the company’s founder, came from a family of goldsmiths in Naples, Italy. Trifari came to the United States in the early 20th century and began making his beautiful Trifari jewellery in 1910.
Trifari used a special patented alloy called Trifanium which looks like gold but does not tarnish. In this piece the leaves were filed, polished and formed into a garland. It has two clasps so that the lengthy can be adjusted from 16.25″ to 15″. The necklace is stamped with the Trifari mark.
