The color of these mint and carded Kramer creations is an electric peridot green. The foilback green rhinestones are in excellent condition. Each pin has 6 pear shape rhinestones in two sizes and one round rhinestone. All rhinestones are prong set. These are book pieces and described as scatter pins in the reference I saw them in.
The larger pin measures about 1 1/4" and the smaller one about 1". Each is marked Kramer. The smaller pin has some discoloration on the back, no cleaning attempt has been made on this.This pin also has one stone set at a slight angle, down and off to the side a little. I am not sure if this is original to the piece, or if it has been bent slightly over the years in storage. The last photo tries to catch the downward bend. This does not detract from the wearability of the piece and shows not signs of a condition problem which would keep you from wearing and enjoying these classic 1960's creations.
The original card announce them as having The Diamond Look by Kramer.
I recently uncovered a box of costume beads which had been stored about 25 to 30 years ago, and was pleased to find about 30 mint and unused Kramer pieces. Many were carded, and the majority seem to be 1960’s production, when Kramer was promoting their Diamond Look line. Kramer produced pieces from 1943 to 1980 and were well known for their mimicry of fine diamond jewelry using quality rhinestones. Marks included Kramer of NY, Kramer of NY City, and Kramer, sometimes on an oval plaque. They also appear to have made a number of unmarked pieces.
Item will be shipped insured first class, for domestic customers, in a padded envelope, packed in a cotton filled nest box, which will have a layer of bubble wrap around it. I will gladly combine shipping and have a number of other Kramer pieces listed, for a coordinated look.
