About

Fabulous Trifari 'tutti frutti' blue chrysoprase and moonstone moulded glass and rhodium plated 'fan' brooch , of the highest quality and craftsmanship that came from Trifari, the exquisite and timeless design of Alfred Philippe.

This has a softer and more subtle effect.The brooch has a 'fur clip' fitting, giving greater security when worn. Outstanding and magnetic when worn!
