When you're looking for the epitome of mid century glamour turn to Kramer of New York. Rhinestones reigned supreme during their golden age in the '50s and '60s and Kramer provided the guiltless glitter customers coveted. The company supplied quality costume jewelry from 1943-1979 and is considered one the major houses of the day.
The earrings presented, circa 1950s, show us why Kramer excelled. Wonderfully full, layered rhinestone dangle earrings feature myriad stone cuts that include chaton, oval, pear, and pie slice or wedge, the center rounds with dentelle faceting. Center cluster begins with a circle of rhinestone ovals surrounding a dentelle faceted chaton. Tiny accent rhinestones separate each oval. Double half moon rows of chaton rhinestones underline. Top cluster is suspended with five tear drop (pear shaped) rhinestone dangles while bottom dangles with six tear drop rhinestones and a center medallion drop comprised of chaton, pear shaped and wedge or pie shaped rhinestones. The clip earrings are plated in luxurious platinum toned rhodium.
