Trifari Pendants Review: Lucite, Gold&Silver Plate, Tone

Updated on January 15, 2015

Trifari Pendants

Trifari pendants rarely appear as standalone jewelry pieces, but when they do, they're impossible to ignore. One of the reasons for that is the sheer size – it's as if they “decided” to go it alone only after “growing” big enough. As a result, these large pendants become among Trifari's most characteristic and expressive pieces. Others combine in one way or another with the necklaces and the earrings, and some pins can be employed a hanging jewels as well.

In general terms, Trifari offer three types of pendants: rhinestones and gemstones rich, luscious centerpieces that accord with many other brand creations from all eras; purely alloy models, gold-tone in particular, that condense familiar design ideas and convey a strong sense of classic, traditional aesthetic; different materials – faux moonstones, corals, and other inclusions that usually cannot be found in the other jewelry.

Lucite joins a list of artificially created gemstones and beads that Trifari consistently use in their jewelry. It's a glass-like translucent material that needs to be carefully attended in order to keep its soft sheen, it can be colored, and it was especially popular during the sixties, when it was used in various fashion and art objects (from shoes and guitars to furniture and picture frames).


The really big pendants link with necklaces that play only a supporting role: all the weight shifts to the main jewel at the center. The pendant can be the only colored part of that particular piece, and will exhibit a range of themes, from familiar abstract motifs, to less familiar florals – which sometimes add an exotic touch.

Necklaces and Earrings

Some necklaces and earrings include small pendants, one or many, which leads to the jewelry turning into luxurious cascade or chandelier-like variations.

These supporting additions, though usually following Trifari's solid classic framework, occasionally deviate, injecting asymmetry and other modernist ideas that became much more common in 21 century jewelry.
