Trifari Pin - Detailed Butterfly on LilyTrifari Pin - Detailed Butterfly on Lily

Marked well with the name Trifari copyright mark on the reverse, this oval shaped pin is most likely from the 1960s. In a bold, detailed three dimensional design, the butterfly rests on a lily. The pin is a composite material of lily and the butterfly are in ivory, while the ground is a beautifully rich pink.

Trifari has always been know for it's fine materials. In 1952 First Lady Mamie Eisenhower asked Trifari to create special jewelry that she would wear to her husband's inauguration; Trifari met her request with the classic three-strand pearl necklace, and duplicates were made for the Smithsonian Institution and for Trifari's archives. Mamie again requested Trifari produce her jewelry for her husband's re-election in 1956.

Sadly, the Trifari brand was discontinued in 2000. But we can still find wonderful pieces of fine quality Trifari, and this lovely pin is no exception. It's 1 inch by 1-1/4 inches in size, and is in beautiful condition. The gold setting is simple yet very bright, and the catch works well. Such a lovely pin!
