Vintage 1965 TRIFARI StarBurst “Topaz” Gold Tone Brooch
With the quality look of fine jewelry, this vintage Trifari brooch is really striking, like fireworks in the night sky. Golden rays shoot from a big Topaz emerald cut rhinestone in the center. That alone would be dramatic but what makes this brooch is the layered construction: The brown stone surmounts those rays which, in turn, surmount a thicket of spiked rays, all of different lengths and slightly angled, maximizing the explosive effect and the interesting outline the brooch makes against fabric.
It measures just over 2-1/2" tall by about 2-1/8" wide by just under 1/2" deep. The stone itself is about 13/16" by 5/8".
It is signed "Trifari" with a crown over the "T" and a "c" in a circle on a plaque on the back.
It was featured in a Christmas 1965 magazine ad for Trifari (in a different color with matching earrings).
It is in Very Good / Excellent vintage condition. The gold tone finish is shiny and bright and the brooch is dazzlingly sparkly.
This brooch will go with everything and is appropriate year round, from summer days to holidays, day or night, casual or dressy. It would make a terrific gift, although I doubt you will want to part with it. A big, beautiful vintage Trifari starburst brooch for your collection!
