My latest addition to my Trifari collection. The rose center piece is from a 1939 necklace but was placed on a later design which was patented in the late 1940s. Patent number: 151,707 ( Nov. 9, 1948). Original patent design: 116,575 (Sept. 12, 1939). The patent drawing shows a necklace encrusted with pave rhinestones. When actually manufactured, they limited the number of rhinestones as the setting of them was probably too expensive at that time. It is marked at the back of the necklace near the clasp. Last photo is quite washed out, but the plating is thankfully in good shape all over. You're always a bit nervous buying online as you can't see everything, but this piece turned out to be in excellent condition.
Thanks for stopping by and taking a look.
