This magnificent brooch and earring set from Crown Trifari is a must-have for any collector of costume jewelry. The brooch is reminiscent of a fleur-de-lis in design. The silvertone setting features blue aurora borealis navettes intermingled with unique iridescent nuggets and tiny round aurora borealis rhinestones. The clip earrings, also a silvertone setting, have a round cluster of the iridescent nuggets with a spray of blue aurora borealis navettes and round rhinestones. As indicated by the pictured ad from Trifari, this set is called Etoile. The Etoile line was produced in 1961. The brooch and earrings are signed Trifari with the crown and trademark symbol.
The condition of this set is excellent with some minor surface scratches to the navettes. The silvertone finish on the back shows no wear except for some nicks to the pin itself.
The brooch is 2 ½ inches wide and 2 1/8 inches long. The clip earrings are 1 ¼ inches long and 1 inch wide.
