Perhaps less known than the Choir of the most abundant, Trifari Napier clothing or jewelry, costume jewelry Kramer often used rare and unique stones in your jewelry. First Instead, a brief history: Between 1943 and 1980, Kramer Jewelry Creations was a family business that produces some of the best high-end costume jewelry. In the decade 1950, 60, made Kramer Designs Christian Dior, so finding a piece of Christian Dior by Kramer is a rare treat, but rewarding. Dior parts often used good quality clear rhinestones with larger center stones of blue or green. Christian Dior's designs can be higher prices due to the name of Dior, but the quality Kramer and designs are as wonderful as those without the name.

Unfortunately for collectors, jewelry Kramer much of the 50s and 60s was not marked and had only a paper tag attached to identify it. If you see a signature, it is likely that "Kramer", "Kramer of New York" or Kramer "New York. Look for the signature on the clip of a slope, or the closure of a necklace or bracelet. Other brands include the rare" Amourelle "from 1963, and Kramer Sterling "which may or may not date from the years of World War II, when sterling silver jewelry was used instead of other metals that were needed for war. Kramer jewelry is famous for its quality, and for the use of rhinestones vibrant colors, with creative settings. Radiant red and orange, dark blue, surprising, topaz bright, and elegant black rhinestones, along with plastic decoration, Kramer gave a variety of jewelry and style.

Review Craigslist his diary and weekly listings of property sales in your area, and subscribe to the mailing list email future sales agent. Often sales in neighborhoods older have vintage costume jewelry for sale. Tip: On the last day of the sale of real points can be marked 50% off. The selection is the best at the beginning of the sale, of course, but the best prices can be found at the end.

As with any costume jewelry collection, is important to be prepared: Bring a magnifying glass or jeweler's glass with you to check the status of the piece. If you are buying for your own collection, and not for investment purposes, can be more flexible with condition defects. If for investment, must be impeccable. Do you like the piece? Take it or the screen or just store it away from be admired from time to time? If the piece is signed by the designer, which increases its value. It is the original box or tag include? Again, increasing the value is there.
