Vintage Trifari Jewelry

I love vintage Trifari jewelry! I have a few pieces in my personal collection that I can't part with and others that I truly love but do have for sale in my eCrater Store.

One thing to keep in mind if you're interested in purchasing vintage Trifari jewelry...it WILL be signed! There are no unsigned vintage Trifari pieces. Through the years all of their pieces were signed with one of several Trifari signatures. Trifari was very diligent when it came to protecting their designs and advertised the fact to let their customers know to look on the back to be certain they were getting the real thing. Some Trifari pieces were copied by smaller manufacturers so it's always wise to check and look for that signature.

The Trifari company was sold to Liz Claiborne in 2000...along with Napier an Monet. Sad on many levels...the production was moved outside the USA and quality took a hit. Some pieces were sold on Trifari cards but they are not signed...and of course, are not vintage.

All the pieces pictured above are for sale at beachcats bargains eCrater Store.
