Stunning signed Kramer of New York pale yellow rhinestone set in an antiqued goldtone metal. The centerpiece of the necklace forms a V and is studded with pale yellow pear and oval-shaped graduated rhinestones on either side of the large center stone. Antiqued goldtone setting with metal beadwork along the rhinestones and outer edge of the necklace. One of my favorite Kramer designs, I have seen this in yellow, purple and clear but not very often in my 35 years of collecting. It is an exceptionally made piece. Box not included, for photo purposes only.
The necklace measures 14.5 inches with a 3 inch front drop. The matching climber clip earrings are 1.5 inches long. Excellent condition; Circa: 1950s
