Vintage KRAMER Parure Caribbean Fruit Salad Rhinestones Leaves Dangle Beads is the most over the top Kramer Set I've ever seen or had the pleasure of owning. The stone makeup is mesmerizing with Oval Lava Givre Cabochons, Opalescent Givre Pears, Frosted Glowing Givre Molded Leaves, Icy Blues, Opalescent Peridot and Peacock AB navettes, Aqua Blue Pears & Dangle Glass Beads, Peridot Chatons. The blues and greens make your head dance with visions of the Caribbean.
All stones in this 4 piece suite are prong set in silver tone settings. The Necklace construction is called Skip Chain and a curved support wire secures the front focal drop. The sides going to the back of the neck are not a simple run of rhinestone chaining, but rather alternating settings of Peridot Chatons, the Frosted Givre Leaves and Opalescent Light Green Navettes. The large brooch uses the same support wire design and is large and loaded. The Bracelet also has Skip Chain construction with soldered stones and a wide push tongue clasp with safety chain. The stones hiding the push tongue are a variety of Peridot & AB Chatons and an Aqua Pear. The ear climber earrings have a definite right and left fit repeating the stones and Aqua Dangle Beads.
Rarely do we find Kramer jewelry of this caliber, and this production uses some of the most elegant rhinestones manufactured during their hay day of the 50's and 60's. This phenomenal creation dots every "T" and crosses every "I" for magnificence. Like most of the Design houses of this era, Kramer ceased operations in the 70's.
