Rodium over gold plated metal
MEASURES 2~1/2" long x 1~1/8" across
Very good vintage condition; noted are faint areas on the Rhodium finish which look like very slight spots of wear. In certain light looks like intermittent speckles.This is typical to Trifari pieces from this era, I believe the gold areas were also coated with something which wore off over time giving the finish this distinct look in areas. This is very faint and seen when looking very closely and in a very small area. Rhinestones are clear and brilliant.
Please keep in mind though we may rate vintage jewelry as in very good to excellent vintage condition, these pieces are pre-owned and may show very gentle wear. This is only pertaining to normal wear as in very slight loss of brilliance in stones, faint, barely visible scratches on metal, and patina on certain metals such as brass and silver / silver plated metal
Please see all photos for best description.
