Label
Spring 2014 Historic New England Magazine: "Designers intended early twentieth-century costume jewelry to resemble precious gems. 'The look of real' was best exemplified by the work of designers like Henri Boucher and Alfred Philippe. Philippe, who trained in Paris, worked at several fine jewelry firms before moving to Trifari. Trifari's work, such as this bracelet, is expertly constructed to resemble its precious stone counterpart."
