For the celebration of the Diamond Jubilee I have chosen a Trifari Crown as this month’s brooch. Trifari was a prolific designer, Gustavo Trifari emigrated from Naples to New York in 1904. In the 1930s Trifari was the second largest costume jewellery producer in the US and by the 1950s the status of the firm had reached a peak with endorsement by the First Lady Mamie Eisenhower.

Though I bought this pretty brooch especially for the Diamond Jubilee I will wear it again when I want to create a regal splash.
