A Short History...

From the 1950s, Trifari produced jewellery in brushed metals and neutral coloured plastics as a means of meeting a demand for costume jewellery that could be worn in the day time. The pieces were a great contrast to the rhinestone encrusted cocktail jewellery intended for wear after the sun had set. Trifari had observed a gap in the market and filled it. Their jewellery for daywear sold in huge numbers. Trifari's pared down, no-flash designs could be worn by working women - imagine a typing pool adorned in gold tone - and housewives alike - think of Betty Draper serving Don his steak in her faux pearls. 

Wear it With...

Embrace Trifari's pioneering asthetic of costume jewellery for day time and pair this brooch with a white t-shirt, black blazer, grey skinny jeans and a pair of glow white trainers.
