"TRIFARI" (with crown)

This fruit salads brooch by Trifari features a line of teardrop-shaped ruby, emerald, and sapphire-glass stones topped with and surrounded by diamantés. The molded glass was used by costume jewelry makers to imitate the Indian-carved gemstones – known as fruit salads or tutti frutti – which were so popular in the Art Deco era. Trifari made their first fruit salad pieces in the late-1930s, typically using acorn-shaped stones. This jewel has the popular trio of colors but in a different shape with an added gem: the company called cabochons with a diamanté center shoe-buttons. The design of this rhodium-plated setting is similar to pieces from the company’s Ming series in the 1930s. The pin closes with a roll-over safety clasp. This elegant and timeless brooch goes with just about everything!
