Trifari traded as one of America's premier costume jewelry companies from around 1910 and so their earlier pieces are rare and hard to find.
This much sought after 1930s Trifari dress clip is beautifully constructed with hand set crystals, all hand set in rhodium plated silver tone metal. This clip would have adorned a ladies dress, fur or jacket embodying the glamour and chic of the well heeled in the 1930s.
