Trifari's ubiquitous rhinestone and simulated pearl brooches, in their own Trifanium finishes reigned supreme mid century. Virtually every combination of lustrous faux pearls and sparkling rhinestones was conceived, often in botanical themes. Here, Trifari incorporates finely striated Florentine leaves arranged in wreath like fashion, shiny stems winding aloft. Three sizes of imitation pearls dot as tiny clear rhinestones accent throughout.
The brooch measures approximately 2 1/4 inches x 2 inches with a 1/2 inch profile or dome. Pearls are 3,4 and 5 millimeters; accent rhinestones, 1 millimeter. Weight of the brooch is 22.3 grams.
