For years we have been trying to assemble a complete original set from this very rare mod Space Age series by Trifari. These pieces are extremely hard to come by. We consider the pieces from this seminal 1960s series a pinnacle of modernist design in the history of costume jewelry, on par with Pierre Cardin and Lanvin.
Each piece in this set is constructed of highly reflective, super shiny chrome plated metal.
The necklace features a wide metal band collar with an adjustable silver tone chain closure with a hook clasp which is signed "Trifari". From this collar hangs a monumental pendant, an amazing fifteen inches or thirty-eight centimeters long. This pendant consists of nine concave highly reflective mirror-like discs connected by silver tone rings. These discs graduate in size, getting smaller toward the middle which creates a very pleasing design, perfectly balanced and symmetrical.
The matching clip earrings are also created from concave reflective chrome discs. A medium size disc hangs on top of a larger disc by way of silver tone rings. These rings attach to a round dome shaped chrome "button" that features a clip back signed "Trifari".
The matching cuff style bracelet is also made of super reflective chrome plated metal. Any dark areas in the photos are reflections in the metal. This cuff bracelet is designed in an ultra clean modern way, reminiscent of the buildings designed by Frank Gehry.
The bracelet is comprised of two curved elements that are set at a slight angle from each other, creating a wing effect. The two metal bands are joined with three silver toned rings. The bracelet is signed "Trifari" on the reverse.
NOTE: Black scarf sarong not included.
