1948 Alfred Philippe Trifari Clear Rhinestone Sterling Crown Pin 85.00 obo

This is the one that started it all! These sterling crowns were so popular in their day the Trifari jewelry company adopted the crown as a part of their sigil, stamp, sign and hallmark.

Original design by Alfred Phippe Trifari this one is in sterling, is signed with the earlier crown over T looking like a trident tipped crown, is stamped sterling and has a date stamp for 1948. The crown is set with cut and faceted brilliant clear rhinestone crystals and is as sparkly as can be! It is one of the smaller versions measuring an inch both ways.

The pin is in good vintage condition, the rhinestones are bright and sparkly, show minimal to no facet wear and there are none missing. There is a slight yellowing to a few of the smaller melee stones - which may well be a simple matter of a good cleaning. I do not like to be too aggressive with my cleaning as some prefer an aged patina on their vintage jewels. The pin back features a rollover clasp and is in perfect working order.

All in all, a great piece of earlier Trifari, in the design most associated to the company, designed by their master designer, Alfred Philippe and in nice vintage condition. Highly collectible and very desireable it is a great choice for any collector of vintage classics. Signed, sealed delivered - it's yours!
