Kramer of New York, one of the most prolific makers of costume jewelry, was founded by Louis Kramer, later to be joined by brothers Morris and Harry. The family run business prospered from circa 1943-1979. Kramer, along with powerhouses Trifari, Coro and Weiss dominated the trade during costume jewelry's heydays. It, along with many other firms, succumbed to the changing tastes of consumers in the 1970s.

Atop the rhinestones, crystal clear glass beads dangle. Spectacular sparkle and shimmer from Kramer's high end line.
