CROWN TRIFARI Brooch Brushed Goldtone & Deep Purple Amethyst Rhinestones
SALE Buyer never paid, so relisting this Crown Trifari Deep Purple Amethyst Bundle Brooch.
What an awesome brooch this is! I bought it tonight from a local dealer who does lots of estate sales, so she comes across some goodies. From the mark, I believe this is from the mid 1950's when a couple of the designers for Crown Trifari were Alfred Philippe and Jean Paris. There were more, but these are just two that I remembered reading about.
One side has 14 purple stones, and the other side has 12. The setting and decorative part of the brooch at the bottom are a brushed goldtone material. This is an excellently made piece of jewelry by Trifari, and it measures app. 2 1/4" across the widest part and 2 1/8" up and down. I love the way these stones are turned in different directions, almost as if the "flowers" in the bouquet could blow in the wind.....a definite motion piece.
When the dealer found it, it was missing two of these beautiful purple amethyst stones. She took it to a jeweler and left it, and he was able to order perfect matches and replace the two missing stones. I didn't see it before, and I can't find the ones he replaced. Can you?? At any rate, I wanted to be totally up front about the replaced stones, but this piece is just awesome! You won't be disappointed. The seller told me this was a book piece, except with different colored stones. I just knew I loved it!
I am always happy to combine purchases to save you on shipping, so please be sure to let me know if you are interested in other items I have listed.
Thanks so much for shopping with me, and God Bless You ! May we honor Him in all we say and do!
