Do-it-Yourself Costume Jewelry Repairs
by: Valerie

I do not believe this vintage costume bracelet can be repaired. The base ( pot metal ) of which it is made will simply melt if a hot solder is applied to it. I would suggest that before risking it, to check around your best arts and crafts stores and see if they have a good jewellery adhesive. A local jeweler may even have one.

Failing that you can get metal epoxy adhesives which, when mixed can fill the cracks and reinforce the piece without compromising the bracelet. Any hardware store or car repair dept of a major retailer should carry epoxy for metal repairs.

Vintage Costume Jewelry Repair
by: Yvonne

Veronika just thought i would let you know that we have sourced a jeweler in Kitchener which is in Ontario who may be ale to help. The problem is customs with jewellery coming in to the country. There are such high tariffs and customs duties it would most likely cost more than the piece is worth.

I have a few more enquires to make and will inform you if I find a jeweler closer to New York who can help you.

Repairing a Trifari Bracelet
by: Yvonne

Hi Veronika I just thought you might like to know a bit of background info about Trifari while we research your question and also seeing you enjoy wearing Trifari - so many vintage costume collectors agree that Trifari costume jools are a dream come true for the new vintage costume jewelry collector.

In the 1950s Trifari excelled at making choker sets of pearl and gold tone metal. Keep an eye on sets and parures

  • Trifari Jewels with molded or carved stones are becoming more collectible and increasing in value.
  • Look for Trifari pieces that feature both gold and silver tone metal. This was expensive to process.

    In 1975 Trifari was purchased by Hallmark. In 1988 Crystal Brands Jewelry purchased the company. In 1994, Trifari was purchased by Chase Capital Partners, Lattice Holding, a division of the Monet group, which was purchased by Liz Claiborne in 2000.
    Trifari remains a part of the Liz Claiborne group today and the jewelry is no longer manufactured in the United States.

    Stayed tuned Veronika as we endeavor to locate a jeweler in New York who can advise on repairing your Trifari Bracelet.

    best regards
