      This was a gift that my mother received from the family of a young man that was suffering from ALS that she privately cared for to the end. We are currently searching for contact information for one of his children to pass it on to them. I am not aware of it's value but I have been told it is one of the better pieces.

      It is gorgeous!

      Beautiful & uncommon Trifari set, lovely gift to your mother. I'm sure the family meant for her to keep it

      Gorgeous !

      I am really just curious as to if it as rare a piece as some have said.
    6. Ms.CrystalShip Ms.CrystalShip, 3 years ago
      If you have read Brunialti, then that's your answer. Scores 1-5 on rarity, right?
      Did this piece have a number?
      Trifari made thousands of pieces....
      We do have a Trifari expert, we shall see what he says :)
    7. Ms.CrystalShip Ms.CrystalShip, 3 years ago
      And Newfld is right. Gifts are not to be returned :)

      Thank you all for the "loves" & comments. As far as retrning a gift, I just thought that since my Mother is no longer in the position of using (wearing) the item(s) that maybe the daughter would like to have something that meant so much to the Daddy she lost when she was just a young girl.
      And I don't know what "Brunialti" is but would love for you to enlighten me in regards as well as put me in touch with a Trifari expert. I am new to this & would welcome any & all education. Such as where to locate said number mentioned by Ms.CrystalShip. Again, thank you all very much.
