    I bought this awhile ago preparing for Spring. Evidently my kick has been on flowers and rhinestones for the season! I have never heard of Dafri before...ever. After doing some research, I found there is not much information out there about the company, nor are there many vintage Dafri pieces available. The ones I did see were quite lovely and appeared well made

    I contacted the Toronto Costume Jewelry Club on Facebook. They confirmed the company was only in business in Toronto in the 40’s and 50’s. It is difficult to identify their pieces unless there is a complete set as not all pieces were signed. Sounds familiar. I read they sold exclusively in North America and had a following with the New York socialites. Who knows?

    Anyway, it’s a fun piece and will go well on my lime or peachy days!

      Great research, as I have never heard of this maker before. That is what makes CW so great, we all learn from one another.
      Considering it's age, it's in fabulous condition...lucky you!
      Great find!
