VINTAGE LARIAT FAUX PEARL NECKLACE & TRIFARI EARRINGS SET
Price: S$30.00 (US$25.00)


Earrings: 18mm
Necklace: 7.5mm beads, 30" length excluding dangle, 18mm largest bead, 2" dangle
Earrings are signed 'TRIFARI' with a crown logo above the 'T'. They are in fine condition with scratches on the surface and some nicks. There is a small peeling of the coat at the edge of one of them, cannot be seen when worn. They are clip earrings, the plating on the clips are in good condition. The necklace is not signed so I cannot tell if they are Trifari, matches the earrings, in fine-good condition, mostly because of wear and aging on the faux pearls on the neck area, where there is slight dulling. The pearls toward the ends and the dangling details are in very good condition. The necklace has no clasp and is meant to be worn knotted on the front or wrapped around your neck, the pearls have a satin sheen in off-white. It is restrung on silk cords. Probably 1960s.
