    Here's a few pieces I've picked up over the last week or so, all from my usual haunts. Three of them have marks and one does not. All are beautiful in their own way marked or not. One is marked on the pin and almost invisible to the naked eye. Two have clear stamped marks. I'm being vague on purpose. Just a little guessing game :) -Mike-

      Giving up so soon Ken...lol I thought you might at least get one . OK so how about a clue. The light green brooch on the bottom is the unmarked one. Here's the clue:
      "Using the title will let you know the first one looks like a silver bow. Right to left they both are green the prettiest costume jewelry I've ever seen. :)"

      I say the one to the right with the green stones is Krementz

      The oval jade stone pin.......You're right jewels :) It's marked on the pin itself and nearly invisible without magnification.

      That top one has to be Trifari (she said with no knowledge at all to back it up...).
      All great Mike but the Krementz (new name to me) is my fave.

      Thanks Karen :) Here's a bit of Krementz history.

      Krementz is a well-known name to anyone with an interest in costume and historical jewelry. Collectors prize Krementz jewelry pieces for their beauty and for the incredible quality the company put into creating costume jewelry that looks authentic. The company has a long history and continues to produce jewelry today.
      The Krementz jewelry story began in the 1860’s, when George Krementz founded his company in Newark, New Jersey. Their original intent was to create men’s jewelry, such as collar buttons and cuff links. In 1886, they turned to the use of gold overlay to create their jewelry. They used rolled gold plate to create a high quality jewelry that was, although technically costume jewelry, by no means cheap.
      Another interesting note regarding the history of the company is the belief that a large collection of Krementz jewelry was on board the Titanic when it sunk. It is believed to have gone down with the ship and has yet to be located by underwater search teams.
      For well over 140 years Krementz jewelry has been prized by those with an eye for quality, and there is no sign that their position will ever change. With both old and new pieces still selling worldwide, the Krementz name is one that will likely be among the top in fine jewelry one day. Krementz jewelry has become a part of American history as well as part of the jewelry collections of American women. It is a name that is likely to stand the test of time, just as its products have done.
