    I bought the brooch separately. The brooch is right. Signed as such. Bought necklace and earrings when I was a very novice collector thinking they were Trifari Gems of India. BUT
    , on close inspection, there are no rhinestones on the stalks of the flowers as there are on the brooch. So are these look alike fakes or did Trifari actually make these and just omit the rhinestones. The pieces are not signed. Does anyone have any info to share with me on these please.?

      We have a Trifari expert here, who has authored books on Trifari jewelry. I know she will stop by to help! And WELCOME TO CW!

      Also you are allowed 4 photos. Are the pieces in question signed? Certainly look authentic to me!

      Sorry, I see where you say they are not signed. Still, they are very pretty, and match the brooch very nicely!

      Hi there, There is the necklace from the design series on ebay. See it here.
      https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Trifari-Alfred-Philippe-Jewel-of-India-Rhinestone-Necklace-Book-Piece/254744001164?hash=item3b4fecfa8c:g:na0AAOSwLAlfgK70
      Your piece I'm sorry to say looks like a great copy. While sometimes the lack of a signature isn't conclusive, it is that ring at the clasp, lack of stones. Also it is surprising the earrings aren't signed.
      Still a lovely set and this is just my opinion.

      Actually, I see the one on eBay does have a ring at the clasp. I guess it is just the lack of the baguette stones that make me think it isn't Trifari.
      Love the brooch!

      What do the earring backs look like? Trifari had distinctive earring clips. That would be another clue that it was a scaled back design or the real deal.

      This is a beautiful set. Maureen - thank you for your expertise. Eileen, yes it does bother me when experts aren't acknowledged.
