Trifari 'Alfred Philippe' Enamel and Pearls Double Peas in the Pod Pin

This lovely Greyhound Rhinestone Pin by Trifari, most likely 1940's-50's and designed by Alfred Phillipe (who had previously designed at Cartier and Van Cleef & Arpels) would achieve at auction near $1000 despite being 'costume' jewellery.

A significant factor in the popularization of costume jewelry was the Hollywood movie. Description from I searched for this on

Pearls, Page 3. This is a whole collection of beautiful pierced/carved iridescent white pearls called "Bethlehem" and "Jordan" pearls. Found in the Holy Land in the 1940's and 1950's and very highly collected and treasured today for their artistry. Thanks so much to Ada Nell McComas for providing the scans of her collection!
