This is a Mid Century double strand faux pearl necklace by the famous American Trifari company. The beads are strung onto silk thread which is knotted in between the beads. The pearls are made of glass and covered with a champagne colored nacre with a beautiful luster. The necklace has a round box clasp made of gilded base metal and this clasp is embellished with an imitation Mabe pearl surrounded by a double twisted edge. The clasp is marked on its back side “Trifari” with a crown over the T, which dates this piece of costume jewelry previous to 1956, probably to the end of the 1940s or 1st half of the 1950s, when faux pearl necklaces were very fashionable. A Trifari ad from 1950 exists with a single strand "Gainsborough" version, but the series were sold into the 1960s in single, double and triple strand versions. Length necklace 60-63 cms /23 3/5-24 4/5" (including clasp) approx.; diameter pearls 8 mms.
Good vintage condition; under magnifier micro scratches visible on the plating of the clasp and some verdi gris on the end findings; the overall condition of the nacre is very good, except for one bead next to the clasp, of which the finish is partially worn. Sophisticated piece, high quality costume jewelry.
