Vintage 1960s Trifari L’Orient Snakeskin and Turquoise Brooch
Rare and highly collectible Trifari L’Oriente white snakeskin enamel brooch on brushed gold with turquoise opaque cabochons. The L’Oriente series came out in the 1960s and was featured on the cover of Vogue magazine.
The Trifari jewelry produced had a distinctive look, resembling fine jewelry, which can easily be recognized by collectors. Much of this is due to the work of a great designer, Alfred Philippe, who worked and designed jewelry for Trifari, for approximately 38 years, from 1930 to 1968, using high quality imported Swarovski rhinestones that were hand-set in the jewelry piece. Philippe worked as a designer of fine jewelry for Cartier and Van Cleef & Arpels, and brought to Trifari many imaginative ideas. He is largely responsible for the creation and development of Trifari's distinctive and class.
