    Hi,

    I have several pieces of Trifari that have white beads and or stones. How do I tell if they are lucite/plastic or the milkglass. I hope this is not a silly question but the set in the above pictures feels very heavy but I do think the flowers are plastic. The necklace is so cool with beads that are round square and oval!

      You can tap them on your teeth glass has a distinct sound & feel. the weight is also a good way to tell, heavy likely glass. I would guess that the brooch is glass. The set looks like it is Lucite. Good luck.
