Chalcedony & Moonstone Fruit Salad Trifari Dress Clip
2 1/2" x 2"
"TRIFARI" (with crown); "DES. PAT 125841"
Design patent # 125,841 issued to Alfred Philippe in 1941
This Trifari dress clip is a 1941 Alfred Philippe design. It features fruit salads in translucent chalcedony and moonstone, surrounded by diamanté in a rhodium-plated setting. This graceful, beautifully-detailed piece is shaped like a maple leaf. You can wear it as a brooch – the hinged, double-prong fastener works well with weighty fabrics. Or wear the clip as a pendant. The third photo shows this piece attached to a sterling chain (which is not included with the clip) – I wanted you to see how lovely this combination looks.
