  1. “Il metallo semplice” non era cosi semplice e banale – nel 1940, Trifari brevettò un processo di placcatura con Trifanium che dà alla bigiotteria la parvenza di oro o argento vero che in frattempo aiuta a mantenere la bellezza dei singoli pezzi per anni.
    Nel vostro blog ci sono pezzi in trifanium: “Spilla di Trifari con muso di leone” e “Spilla con perle finte”

    En el año 1995 más o menos adquirí un juego de collar y aretes y están como nuevos, en verdad hasta ahora me pongo a averiguar qué marca son porque di calidad es excelente y me doy cuenta que son bisutería de muy buena calidad? Deseara saber de qué material están elaborados y como podría adquirirlos? Ya que este juego se lo compre a un excompañero de universidad.
