This week's Haute Tramp {Vintage Costume Jewelry Love} is a Vintage Trifari Fur Clip with Emerald Green and Frosted Moonglow Fruit Salad Glass Stones (a mouthful, I know). There is something about fur clips and dress clips that I find utterly enchanting. I think they should come back into fashion in full force.

I'll give you 3 reasons why Dress Clips and Fur Clips should make a comeback 80 years after they were a staple in every woman's jewelry wardrobe:

  1. Dress Clips are Sexy, Sophisticated, and Very Flattering. This is due to the “ever so popular never should go out of style sweetheart neckline” combined with how they were worn. One could wear just one (usually put right between “the girls” or one on either side of your dress) They are the epitome of femininity.
  2. Fur Clips were not JUST for fur, a woman wore them with her coats and thicker materials.
  3. Adorn your evening bag with a vintage dress clip. Clutches look fantastic with dress or fur clips attached to the front of them.

Incorporating vintage pieces into your jewelry wardrobe is a definite do! Everyone needs at least a few fantastic vintage pieces in their jewelry arsenal. Vintage jewelry is smart, unique, made insanely well, and usually comes with many years of wisdom not too mention a life of fun filled adventures!

Sometimes it just takes a little dash of inspiration and before you know it you fall in love with a piece of old vintage jewelry that can be new again.

Vintage Crown Trifari Fur Clip, Circa 1930's

This is a collectors dream pin. I always admired it in the jewelry books, but never owned one. This 1930's vintage signed Trifari fur clip-pin features green and moonstone color fruit salad stones with clear rhinestone accents in a silver-tone setting. In excellent condition, this piece measures 3 ½x 2 and is signed with the Crown Trifari. via Jeweldiva on 1stdibs
