The name Trifari has been famous in the costume jewellery world for about 100 years. Unfortunately it lost its independence at the end of the last century and was acquired by Liz Claiborne in 2000. This pair of gold tone clip earrings with black glass stones in the shape of a cross has the mark TM next to the Trifari mark on the clip fitting. De Marc Treasures says this about the mark - "TRIFARI" on a raised rectangular cartouche with the 'trademark' "TM" symbol. I believe the pieces with the date (I have seen 1995, 1996 and 1997) are the limited edition pieces (production usually limited to 350 to 500 pieces) that were sold on QVC. Many of these pieces were reproductions of some of Trifari's popular mid-century brooches so they were dated to distinguish them from the original patented pieces." Thanks to De Marc Treasures for this! This pair do not have the date but just have the TM mark and De Marc Treasures thinks TM pieces are likely to be between the late 1980s and 1995. I have therefore including them in vintage. I think this is the last of the original Trifari marks. They are in very good condition and measure approx 1 1/2 x 1 1/4 inches. The clip fitting on the back is quite unusual. Please see all pictures. Ref: 3314 D38/27
