  1. Fabulous provenance. Very special! So glad they are in your collection!
  2. What an amazing collection. A real little time capsule. Happy Thanksgiving!
  3. Hi Lori, Plein is Maureen. Happy Thanksgiving.
  4. Wonderful early Hollycraft. Look how the stones are prong set. Superb example. Thanks for sharing it.
  5. Kudos to your wonderful daughter. So loving to listen and find it for you! Beautiful addition to your fabulous collection!
  6. What do the earring backs look like? Trifari had distinctive earring clips. That would be another clue that it was a scaled back design or the real deal.
  7. Actually, I see the one on eBay does have a ring at the clasp. I guess it is just the lack of the baguette stones that make me think it isn't Trifari. Love the brooch!
  8. Hi there, There is the necklace from the design series on ebay. See it here.
  9. Beautiful. so gorgeous. Love it all.
  10. Eileen, Thank you for your kind comments. Love collecting old costume jewelry and sharing it here. Thank Manikin for your Exclamation point comment. Also kwqd thanks for the love, too.
  11. I think Valentino's idea is a great one. I have several ideas. I'll post one or two. Love the conversation and the enthusiastic appreciation for this piece. Thanks to posters Valentino97, RichomondL...
  12. Hi Eileen, I'm the queen of typos, misspellings and grammatical errors, so worries. I saw this design on the 'gems of the sea' catalog page, but I don't know it has a specific name for this design.
  13. Thank you Eileen, It is so fun to find something! Thank you Maria,
  14. There were also a least two necklaces, and three earring styles that I know of.
  15. That could be. They released several lines a season, so they needed a lot of designs. I have never seen the fox either. super rare.
  16. Hi Jenni, I hadn't initially thought I was. I'm an accidental collector. But I have two now, so maybe:)
  17. Eileen, Thanks again! I redid the photos. I think these are better. I hope you can see more of the detail. I do love this set and love Haskell. Looking forward to wearing it next year.
  18. Richmond Lori - White cashmere coat ! Elegance personified. Love the imagery you conjure. Hi Eileen, I'd love to find the drop earrings that Polcini made for this line.,,,Another pipe dream. So go...
  19. Hi Eileen, All good with me. I'm working on a new book, as well having my 'day job' so haven't been looking on line for Trifari. I usually confine my hunting to thrifts, estate sales (which have prett...
  20. Thank you CW for all the love for this piece!
  21. Elisabethan, Thank you again. I love the bird motif. Boucher birds are a whole collecting category, but so rare. I was thrilled to find this one. Thanks for the love! Karen, Thanks for the love!
  22. Mary, Eileen, and Elisabethan, Thanks for your loving the workmanship on this piece. While costume, the filigree back is so pretty, too. Thanks for the love and comment. I'd be remiss if I didn't ...
  23. Mary- I love the amethyst glass, too. Well worth a tardy return to work!
  24. Elisabethan, Thanks for the love and admiration for this piece. You seem to have recently check many of submissions. I thank you for all the clicks of love.
  25. Elisabethan, Thank you! So glad you love this brooch, too. Haskell was brilliant!
  26. Jenni, My mistake! You have the cute tiger! I don't why I thought I saw the zebra on CW, too. Oh well, my apologies.
  27. LaurenRedmond- Thank you I agree about the pose. Zebras are a rare image. Thanks for the love, too. Eileen, Thank you!. The Ark series did include originals, like that adorable tiger. I haven't fou...
  28. Love the design on this piece. Wonderful variety of stone shapes, too. Great find!!!
  29. Gorgeous!
  30. Hi Eileen sent me. I agree with the experts who have spoken, shoe clips. There are places you can send them to have the stones professionally replaced if you are anxious about taking on the task. W...
  31. Hi salome000! Eileen said to stop by so here I am. I suggest you look at the book Schreiner Masters of Twentieth-Century Costume Jewelry by Carole Tenenbaum and Eve Townsend. Carole Tanenbaum is the u...
  32. Awesome! I believe that is an Australian black opal. Impressive and fabulous. I'm sure a rel expert will identify it.
  33. There are companies that will authenticate the handbag for you. Looks like a beautiful bag. Good luck
  34. Love that you have the original ad, too! Beautiful pair.
  35. Mary I can't love a post a second time, although when I see one I have loved I reflexively try to. I think you have to comment, that's what does it. So thank you! six-o-one Thank you for the comme...

  37. Mary - So true! I have a bracelet here and a brooch there, but not many matching sets. six-o-one Malkey Eileen Aura fortapache Mary Jenni and Hel1 Thanks for the love! I added better photos...
  38. Eileen, Another appreciative comment! Thank you. I thought the stone unusual and of course, red!! Thanks for pushing this to the top again. Mary-I can't either when I see them online! Thanks to MA...

  42. Hi Eileen, Thanks again. I love early Trifari, as you well know!
  43. I'm voting for the Coro trembler! Gorgeous design!
  44. Beautiful bird in flight. Love the textural look that the different rhinestone shapes give.
  45. Eileen, Thank you, I think he's pretty cool, too. Don't know how rare, but I haven't seen more than a few of these. His eyes are his charm:) Thanks for the love! Thanks Jenni for the admiration and ...
  46. Thanks six-o-one, I love Trifari! But I know you do, too. Thanks for the love. Thanks to kwqd vetraio50 for the love, most appreciated!
  47. That is just adorable! Love it! I didn't know Boucher did dogs. Your collection is just awesome.
  48. Yes, Coro had unsigned pieces. Not many were unsigned, but when you can find a patent, that's the strong evidence of the design's pedigree.
  49. The color is just awesome. D&E could really create a stunning palette of color. Beautiful and justly in a fabulous D&E collection.
  50. Hi Eileen, I tried to love this again ad I couldn't:) Superb piece! Love it and love it again!
