I found this old vintage signed Trifari bracelet for a bargain in a local trinket shop and I love it’s chunky links and layered texture which is very much in vogue at the moment.
The company quickly became the queen bee of the costume gems in the 1930′s and began marking each piece. This protected each piece each piece in this era from copy cats.
Despite their success right up until the 1970′s, the company finally sold to Hallmark and Trifari jewellery is still made today, although vintage enthusiasts find the quality disappointing.
It has been snowing here in London for the past few days and it certainly makes a pretty picture. Thankfully it hasn’t affected travel plans of family and friends who have come to visit Archie from Ireland.
