This beautiful, classic and elegant brooch by Trifari is in excellent condition and features both round and baguette clear crystal rhinestones in a gold tone setting as well as faux pearls. This piece measures 2" tall. A simply marvelous vintage treasure! This elegantly stylized heart pin was designed by Alfred Philippe; Trifari’s best known designer, and is pictured with the patent, #169209, dated 3/31/53, (also on page 203 of Julia Carroll's book "Costume Jewelry 202."). The clasp functions properly and this marvel is in remarkable condition for its age, still looks new. The baguette rhinestones are clear, and amazingly brilliant, the pearls all lustrous and unblemished. A wonderful treasure from one of the most famous costume manufacturers, the Trifari company was founded in 1925 by Gustavo Trifari, Leo F Krussman and Carl M Fishel, in New York, 377 Fifth Avenue. Their fabulous items are still very much sought after due to the high quality.
