This LOVE heart unsigned Crown Trifari piece is listed in "Signed Beauties of Costume Jewelry" by Marcia Brown on page 191. It is valued at $150. The only difference this one is unsigned and probably had a hang tag. This beautiful little heart pin has a base of gold tone leaves, accented in the center with tiny faux pearls, and on the outer base seven colored stones. It is a very delicate piece, measuring 1¼ by 1 inch. It is in excellent condition, with all stones intact and a strong clasp. Starting from the stone the represents a Diamond, move around the heart to the next one Emerald, Amethyst, Ruby, Emerald, Sapphire, and finally Topaz..from the first letter of each stone..spells the word DEAREST. Will make a great addition to any fine costume jewelry collection.
Vintage, Costume and Modern Jewelry -- Great pieces at Great prices!
