Louis Kramer exquisite costume jewelry (1943-1980)
Founded by designer Louis Kramer and his two brothers Morris and Harry in 1943 in New York, Kramer Jewellery Creations continued production until the late 1970s. From the very beginning the brand’s jewelry enjoyed a great success among buyers due to original designs and excellent performance.
Kramer jewelry was a high class, with scrupulous performance and often very interesting design. In addition, the high quality products had limited circulation. Also, traditional materials included gilded metal with black enamel, faux pearls, imitation of rubies, emeralds, lapis lazuli, jade, turquoise and pearls.
Noteworthy, in the early 1950s the company produced ornaments for Christian Dior. Accordingly, they labeled these products “Kramer for Christian Dior” and “Dior by Kramer”. A distinctive feature of these decorations are large blue or green stones, usually located in the middle of the jewelry piece, framed by clear rhinestones. Due to Dior name, these pieces were more expensive than the rest of Kramer products.
