Kramer

Unique costume jewellery

Kramer Jewelry Creations was founded by Louis Kramer in New York City in 1943. He worked with his brothers Morris and Harry to produce costume jewellery at a range of prices that would appeal to as many customers as possible.

The best pieces are set with a generous number of high-quality Austrian rhinestones and are typical of the luxurious jewellery worn to enhance the tailored fashions of the 1950s. Designs tend to be bold and became more abstract in the 1960s. Some also feature faux pearls. The company closed in the late 1970s.

Kramer jewellery may be marked “Kramer of NY”, “Kramer of NY City”, or “Kramer” on an oval or triangular plaque.
