Swarovski Trimlite Acorns and Pineapples


The Swarovski Trimlite Acorns were issued in the “Pineapples and Acorns” grouping.  There were two different sizes.  The small Trimlite Acorn has a clear nut with gold-tone trim on the leaves, measuring approximately 1.25 inches in length.  The original retail price was $25.

The Large Trimlite Acorn is about 2.5 inches in length.  It also has a clear nut with gold-tone trim for the leaves. The original retail price was $50. There are more gold-tone layers on the large acorn cap than on the small one.

Both Acorns were introduced in 1980 and retired in 1988 and both have the Trimlite T logo imprinted on the gold leaves, but it can be difficult to find.

Swarovski issued 3 Trimlite Pineapples in Small, Medium and Large; all 3 were issued in 1985 and retired in 1988.

The small pineapple has a single crystal 1″ (25mm) in diameter serving as the fruit. The leaves on top and the base on the bottom are in gold-tone. It measures 2-1/4 inches High x 1-1/2 inches Wide (58mm x 40mm), and is marked with the Logo: T.  It retailed for $30.

The medium pineapple has a single crystal 1-1/2″ (35mm) in diameter serving as the fruit. The leaves on top and the base on the bottom are in gold-tone, marked with the T logo, measuring  2-7/8 inches High x 1-1/2 inches Wide (73mm x 35mm). It retailed for $50.

The large Pineapple is 3-1/4 inches & 82mm high, & marked with the T logo. It retailed for $70.

    I really like the Trimlite pieces, despite the fact that they come unglued easily. They are unique and much scarcer than the pieces that are being mass produced these days. OK, they are not as sophisticated, but they are beautiful in their simplicity.

  2. Nan: Trimlite easily comes apart. Hard to glue crystal to metal, especially after 30+ years have passed since they were issued.

    Robert: I was in Salzburg in the late 90’s and a shop there was full of Trimlite; I didn’t know what the hell I was looking at then…, no knowledge of Trimlite, what a missed opportunity! 😦

    Trimlite.? Does not sound like my cup of tea.
    Other items Swarovski have produced with Gold and Crystal seem to have a problem of coming apart.
    Did Trimlite have this problem also?
    I must admit I have never seen any Trimlite.

  4. Robert says:

    No one seem to have any Trimlite over this side of the Atlantic
    seems to be a USA thing.
