Trifari Etoile pin and earring demi parure is designed with, iridescent topaz lava art glass stones and topaz chatons and navettes. The spectacular nuggets of light Trifari used in their Etoile series made it wildly popular when introduced and accounts for its desirability among collectors today. The colors that radiate from these nuggets are stunning and, depending on the type and angle of light, they glow from a soft lemony yellow to a deep honey amber with flashes of pinks, blues, and purples, a dazzling display of rainbow hues. Visual effects are hard to describe, so please be sure to enlarge the photos for a close-up look. This design was patented for the name "Etoile" in 1961. This set is in excellent, near pristine, vintage condition, the nuggets, rhinestones and gold Trifanium plating look great. The brooch measures 2 1/4 x 1 3/4 inches, the earrings measure 1 1/8 x 1 inch and are clip style and each piece is signed "Trifari" with the Crown and "C". Trifari featured Etoile in their 1961 "obviously by Trifari" ad campaign and the ad reads: "Etoile...breath-taking magnificence in a startling beautiful jewel series by Trifari. Nuggets of pure light caught amidst the rainbow facets of fabulous fake gems! Sheer wizardry for fashion's elegant simplicity.".
