Kramer ramped up the drama in this vintage 1950s necklace, bracelet, brooch and earrings set resplendent with radiant topaz rhinestones caged in black net and accented with smoke chatons in gold plated settings. Kramer's innovative use of fishnet to cover the topaz rhinestones was quite creative and the sensuous veiled look is very dramatic, enhancing rather than diminishing the warm honey glow of the rhinestones. This is a grand parure plus, in addition the the necklace, bracelet, brooch and earrings, it includes the double wide bracelet. The necklace and bracelets are in excellent condition, one bracelet still has the Kramer Golden Look hang tag. The ear climber, clip style earrings have a slight tear in the netting on a couple of the stones but the flaw is not very noticeable. The brooch has tears in the netting on three rhinestones and is being sent along as a gift. The rhinestones all sparkle and are all original and the plating looks rich and creamy. Each piece is signed "Kramer of New York" except the necklace which is signed "Kramer on the J hook. Both bracelets have safety chains and rhinestone embellished push in clasps and the necklace hook is also rhinestoned. The necklace measures 16 inches by .5 inches, the bracelets measure 7 inches, one is .5 inch wide and the other is 1 inch wide, the brooch measures 2.5 inches by 1.75 inches and the earrings measure 1.5 inches. The double wide bracelet is featured on page 374 of Julia Carroll's "Collecting Costume Jewelry 202". This is a sophisticated, striking suite of vintage Kramer jewelry that will dazzle and delight.
