    Hi again,

    Is there any reference database I could look at for Trifari pieces?

    I recently bought this necklace and the only hits I have online are previous sold ones.

    This has been listed as glass. No clue about what type of metal. I can find no markings apart from the Trifari. I did find one set of earrings recently sold which gives me hope they made other items in this design.

    Can anyone add anything? I’d appreciate any comments you could add.

    I'd be thinking late 70s to mid 1980s. The only patent database I know of for Trifari designs only goes up into the 50s.

    I’ll show my ignorance: Whats the difference between crown or regular Trifari?

    Usually a digit on the price tag. The crown pieces cost more originally and sell for more now apparently.
