Price: S$35.00 (US$29.17)
Size: 24.5" chain, 56 x 69mm pendant
Signed 'TRIFARI ©' on the pendant, the chain is not original to the pendant but it is also a designer piece (judging from the clasp this could be a Lisner, Coro, Goldette or even Trifari itself), I just thought it matched the plating colour and style very well. It is a twist textured chain with foldover clasp and is in very good condition. The Trifari pendant is very large and has a textured dimpled surface rectangles intersecting polished rectangles to form a sunburst style. It is in very good condition though there are some scratches and nicks on the surface. 1960s-early 1970s.
