Vintage Kramer Jewels
Kramer Jewelry Creations was in business in New York from 1943 to the late 1970's. It was founded by Louis Kramer and did some of the designs himself in the beginning. They manufactured a wide range of jewelry, from the simple to the extravagant. They used Austrian rhinestones to plastic inserts. Kramer of New York was located 393 5th Avenue, New York, New York
Recently I have been contacted by a granddaughter of a designer for Kramer, Deanne. Her grandfather's name was Karnig Moomjian and designed for Kramer through the 70's. She is going to try finding more information and send photos of some of his designs!
Kramer jewels can be marked:
Kramer of NY Kramer of New York Kramer Amourelle (these pieces are rare from 1963 and were designed by Frank Hess, former head designer of Haskell Jewelry) Christian Dior by Kramer (Yes, they produced for Christian Dior)
Some had paper hang tags from 1948 "Diamond Look" and 1950 the "Golden Look".
Kramer is one of my favorite designers and if you are lucky enough to have or find some of their earlier rhinestone pieces, you would understand why. They are collected by few and greatly under appreciated, in my humble opinion. Here are pictures of Kramer Jewels that I would love to share with you!
This page is a work in progress (under construction) so please check back soon! There will be more info and pictures of marks and ads added.
