Stunning may be an overused word when describing vintage jewelry, but in this case, “stunning” may not even be a strong enough word. Designed and created, in 1944, by the famous Trifari designer, Alfred Philippe, this set consists of 2 brooch pins and 1 pair of clip earrings made of sterling vermeil which is sterling silver coated with 14k gold. This set is a “Book Piece”, showing up often in vintage jewelry collector books. It is very desirable and highly collectible. The jewel tone colors in these pieces are nothing short of luscious!
The crown brooches feature 2 oval domed glass jelly belly cabochons in ruby red on either side. The crowns are accented with a line of round emerald chatons, a line of rectangular sapphire chatons, and clear pavé rhinestones. They are topped with emerald jelly belly glass cabochons with another ruby rhinestone at the very tip. Both close with a pin and locking c-clasp.
The clip on style earrings feature a domed ruby red glass jelly belly cabochon, in an oval shape, with a sapphire chaton at the top and curving sterling vermeil piece accented with clear pavé rhinestones. You may notice that the earring backs had comfort pads over the tops of them, I have since removed them.
The smaller crown brooch measures about 1 ¼ inches wide by 1 ¼ inches high, and is signed on the back with: TRIFARI with a crown symbol over the T, STERLING, DES.PAT.NO 137542.
The larger crown measures about 1 ¾ inches wide by 1 5/8 inches high, and is signed with: TRIFARI with a crown symbol over the T, STERLING, 137542.
The earrings measure about 1 inch tall by about ½ inch wide. They are stamped on the back with TRIFARI with a crown over the T, and STERLING.
This gorgeous set is in good vintage condition with no missing or dead rhinestones, and really no wear to the vermeil, other than a tiny spot on the large crown, between the 2 prongs holding in the jelly belly cab on the right side and at the bottom curve. The other 2 pieces are in such lovely condition that they practically look new. Pinbacks and earring clips all function properly.

Please keep in mind that vintage items are just that- Vintage. They've been worn and loved and all are at least 20 years old, most even older. Due to age, there may be certain areas of wear or other imperfections that are inherent to vintage items. I will always mention significant damage or wear but please do not expect things to look like “new” items as they are not new.
