Trifari was founded in the 1910s by Gustavo Trifari, the son of an Italian goldsmith. He partnered in 1925 with sales managers Leo Krussman and Carl Fishel forming the Trifari, Krussman, and Fishel company. Trifari becomes a major costume jewelry company under the leadership of French designer Alfred Philippe, the company’s chief designer from 1930 until 1968. Phillippe brought with his design and manufacturing processes used in fine jewelry that elevated Trifari’s pieces above the rest. Most Trifari patents of the era include his name even if he wasn’t the principal designer of those pieces.
His Trifari Crown brooches from the late 1930s to the 1950s led the company to stamp pieces with the crown logo leading to the name Crown Trifari. In 1953 Mamie Eisenhower wore a Crown Trifari necklace, bracelet, and earrings set to the inaugural in 1953 and again in 1957. Like many other storied costume jewelry houses, sales were affected by cheap imports starting in the 1970s. The company was purchased by the Monet Group in 1994 which in turn was itself purchased by Liz Claiborne in 2000. Trifari still makes jewelry today but of much lesser quality.
