Vintage Crown Trifari Amethyst Purple Rhinestone Abstract Floral Leaf Brooch
This Trifari pin or brooch is so lovely with its high quality design and execution. It is a medium size brooch in a stylized leaf or floral design with clear invisibly channel set rhinestones for the stem and a combination of lavender and clear prong set rhinestones for the leaves or flower petals. The metal is silver tone rhodium plated. The design is very elegant; the lavender rhinestones give a slight mauve cast to the larger clear stones and the whole thing sparkles beautifully in the light. It has the Crown Trifari Patent Pending mark that was in use from the late 1930s or so through 1955 but I’m quite sure this is an early 1950s design. It is in excellent condition with hardly any sign of wear, clasp works great, no finish loss or degradation, no missing or darkened rhinestones, pin stem has a very slight bump in it (see photo). It measures approximately 2 ¾” long and ¾” wide and weighs approximately 12 grams.
