Sapphire, Diamanté & Sterling 1940s Bouquet Brooch by Trifari

Floral bouquets were a popular theme for Trifari and other costume jewelry makers during WWII. This design is horizontal in format, with faceted, oval sapphire-glass flowers, diamanté leaves, and silver stems. The setting is rhodium-plated sterling silver. The roll-over safety clasp has been replaced by my expert jeweler. Pieces like this one are easy to wear with modern jewelry – just add simple diamond (faux or real) studs or hoops to complete your jeweled accessories.
