    This is the Trifari shell brooch from 1947. Crafted in sterling, it is a stunning brooch that looks to be inspired by the Courtland Thomson shell brooch owned by the Queen, and inherited from the Queen Mother. The Queen wore her Courtland Thomson Shell brooch for her 2020 Christmas broadcast. You can read more about it on my blog, The Costume Jewelry Historian. http://jewelryhistorian.blogspot.com/

    Merry Christmas!

      RichmondLori, thanks for your comments. Love the pieces you post, also, I just commented on your 'Blue Mist' Sherman.

      six-o-one. Thanks! And best to you for a wonderful holiday.

      Just gorgeous!

      Beautiful Trifari Fur Clip, does it convert to a brooch - I have several pieces that are interchangeable also
    6. Ms.CrystalShip Ms.CrystalShip, 9 months ago
      The quality of your Trifari collection is second to none. This incredible fur clip is 73 years old, and is in amazing condition! The pearl still glows, showing Trifari quality. ( Maureen, how I wish I had the matching earrings, they would be coming your way. Here’s hoping you will find them some day!)

      I was doing some responses on some of my posts, but I don’t like the fact this piece as “going down”. Belongs on top! Though it’s kind to respond, I just wish it didn’t bring the post back to the top burying new posts. I just love this piece Maureen and the history behind it!

      Ms CrystalShip, no worries on the earrings. I have them. Thanks for the love and compliments, too. Always a kind word.

      Jenni, If you mean does it have a clasp on it, it does. Thanks for the love and comment.
      RichmondLori, Thanks for giving this piece the comments and love. I think this piece calls for velvet ( or these days velour) don't you?
      six-o-one So glad you have the earrings, They are gorgeous. I hope the clip comes your way, too. Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!

      And thanks for the love and best wishes for a Happy New Year with fabulous additions to your collections to (I know I'm repeating names here, but why not?)

      Maureen, I think it would do excellent on any fabric. but velvet would really set it off. Lori

      Next time, post as a set! It is wonderful to see “sets” as they are so hard to come by, especially at this age! Earrings tend to get lost, and having them to match a 70+ year old brooch is not typical..can we see them please? ( I saw them on your blog, didn’t know they were yours, so glad!)

      Eileen, Posted for you. - Best Maureen

      nutsabotas6 - Thank you so much for the comment and love. Yes, Trifari had some very high quality pieces. I see I'm missing a stone on the brooch, though! Got to get that replaced.:)
    13. Ms.CrystalShip Ms.CrystalShip, 8 months ago
      Maureen, the earrings are superb! As is this incredible brooch!
      These wonderful antique fur clips are few and far between, I am so glad this set found the right home :)
      Wonderful Trifari jewelry as always!

      ho2cultcha, Thanks for the compliment on the photography and the love click, too.

      Is it a brooch or fur clip? It sure is pretty! Never saw that shape!
    17. plein-air-painter plein-air-painter, 4 months ago
      Celiene, You're right of course, it is a fur clip.
