A MUST HAVE FOR ANY COLLECTOR AND A GORGEOUS ACCENT TO THE PERFECT OUTFIT. KTF was an abbreviation for the last names (Trifari, Krussman, and Fishel) and the first substantiated use of this mark, a large T flanked by a smaller K and F, is about 1935. Later, it was decided to use just the word "Trifari" rather than the more cumbersome three names, as the owners felt it sounded elegant and European.
A crown has been used with the word Trifari in both the advertising and actually on the signature stamping, usually on the more expensive pieces, though the absence or presence of the crown itself may not be of any significance. Many collectors feel that Trifari jewelry, especially pieces from the 1930's-1960, are among the finest pieces of costume jewelry ever produced. Add SFBAYMARKET to your Favorite Sellers.
