Trifari Mid-1940s Sterling Vermeil, Turquoise Glass and Ruby Paste Vintage Fur Clip


    This rare and beautiful fur clip was created in the mid-1940s by Trifari. 

    Condition Report:

    Very Good - A little rubbing to the vermeil plating at the edges of the clip. This is consistent with age and use and does not detract from the appeal of the piece.

    A Short History...

    This piece can be dated to the mid-1940s, as a patent for a necklace in the same design line was granted in September 1946. A similar fur clip was advertised in the New York Herald Tribune in August 1946.   

    Wear it With...

    This clip is perfect for evening wear or a special occasion. It would look beautiful with a little black dress, but equally chic with a bridal gown. Alternatively, wear it in the day - pinned to the collar of a crisp white shirt.

    The jewellery within the Gemma Redmond Vintage collection has survived to this day because it has been well cared for throughout its lifetime. It is important to continue to care for the jewellery that you buy from us to ensure its continued preservation. Here are some suggestions:

    - Be sure to store your jewellery within the boxes that we provide to ensure that it is protected. This is especially important when travelling with your pieces.

    - Try not to get perfume or hairspray on your items. These liquids can damage the materials that our jewellery is made from.

    - Try not to drop your jewellery or catch your jewellery against hard surfaces. If this happens over time, the findings and fixings can loosen and wear.

    - Try not to get your jewellery wet. Some costume jewellery manufacturers utilised water soluble glue in the making of their pieces. Getting your jewellery wet could cause rhinestones and other details to fall away over time.

    - If you wish to clean your jewellery, use a soft polishing cloth or a soft brush.
