Diane Love for Trifari jewelry is highly sought-after, due to the fact that her designs were revolutionary and very different than what Trifari was used to. Unfortunately for collectors of her work, most of her designs were only signed "Trifari"; her name was only on a paper tag that are usually thrown away. Luckily, Diane Love is still around to help us identify her work, and some of her Trifari masterpieces are still in her archives. This necklace is a replica of a Greek reliquary crucifix, set with baroque pearls on small, twisted round links in antique silver finish. The necklace opens just as the original did. I have never seen another, besides the designer's own, so I am definitely very fortunate to be able to own two of this! I have two versions; there is the longer version which I sold, and this is the shorter version I'm keeping. Signed "TRIFARI" twice; once behind the cross and another behind the fold-over clasp.
