"Nuggets of pure light" as Trifari would extol in a print ad from 1961. It's magnificent Etoile collection is pictured in part in Julia C. Carroll's "Collecting Costume Jewelry 202". In the brooch and earrings set presented, spectacular high rise, textured lava rock / nugget cabochons in a lemon-lime shade appear to glow from within. The free form stones are paired with aurora borealis marquise, pear and chaton rhinestones, amplifying the rocks' radiance. Reverses are plated in lustrous gold tone, akin to luxurious rhodium plate. Truly some of Trifari's most revered specialty stones, coveted by collectors and aficionados of the company's Etoile line, circa late 1950s-early 1960s.

Largest marquise rhinestones are 10 millimeters x 5 millimeters. Matching clip earrings are about 7/8 inch across with a 1/4 inch profile or height.
