TRIFARI
CATALOGUE ~

Fall and Winter of
1966


It was 1966
the Mamas and the Papas were singing "You Were On My Mind"; Lyndon Johnson
was President,; Billie Jean King won at Wimbledon; the first "Star Trek" TV show was broadcast; Truman Capote wrote
"In Cold Blood"; "Alfie" was on at the movies; and women were on the
new "Pill".

Fashions
varied from "Mad" to "Mod." It would be one more year before the first
Super Bowl (1967 Greenbay ,NFL, and Kansas City, AFL); Frank Sinatra
sang "Strangers in the Night"; while we were fighting and protesting
Vietnam, nearly a million young students from all parts of China protested
in Tien An Men Square; Walt Disney died, ending an era; and everyone was
humming the theme to "Born Free.


And in the jewelry
world, here is what

Trifari

was showing in their winter jewelry catalogue…
