    Great Rare Early Trifari Piece! The TK in a Circle is the earliest known mark for the Trifari Brand, representing the partnership of Gustavo Trifari & Leo Kraussman, which began in 1918. This mark would date your piece to at least prior to 1925. In 1925, Carl Fishel joined Trifari and Kraussman and the "KTF" Trifari Mark was used.
    A nice piece of costume jewelry history!
