Vintage Trifari 'Diamonds' for April!

http://www.arabellabianco.co.uk/necklaces/vintage-april-birthday-ribbon-necklace-Trifari.html
The birthstone for April is the diamond!
This beautiful brushed gold plated necklace by Trifari is from Trifari's Birthday Collection, rhinestones for April.
A gorgeous necklace for a wedding or special occasion!  £165.

Trifari was born in Naples but emigrated to New York in 1902. Gustavo Trifari began his own business in 1918 when he met Leo Kraussman. They were joined by Carl Fishel, in 1925. In 1975 the company was bought by Hallmark, and since then has been taken over by several companies. In 2000 production was finally moved overseas which brought an end to high quality signed Trifari jewellery.

Fashion Deja Vu — Marilyn Monroe Edition

                     Marilyn's Sister, Berniece Baker Miracle
"Nowadays, two big stars wearing the same outfit is a major fashion faux pas, but back in Hollywood’s heyday it was common practice to recycle clothes so the studios could save a few bucks. While many of Marilyn’s dresses and costumes are considered to be style icons, she often wasn’t the first (or the last!) to wear them". By Marijane Gray for Immortal Marilyn
