    I bought this off a friend for a small asking price (7.50) earlier this afternoon. She got it from a local flea market. Not her style, but definitely mine! I had been looking for a vintage Tiger Eye ring, but no luck until today.

    Thanks for stopping!

    FISCHLAND JEWELRY / GEORG KRAMER
    De real Fischland jewelry is produced by the company of Walter Kramer (a descendant of Georg Kramer). The silversmith Georg Kramer founded his company in 1771 in Ribnitz Damgarten (Germany). His descendant is the master goldsmith Walter Kramer who started in 1932 with the designs of the well-known silver "fish-jewelry" which usually were decorated with amber. Walter named this jewelry to the Fischland area near Ribnitz, the southwestern part of the peninsula Darss-Zingst. This jewelry was a great success, especially amongst the tourists and bathers from that era, and in 1939 the company was renamed Fischland GmbH with patent protection. The company then had 100 employees. In addition to the Fischland Schmuck this company also designed beautiful modernist jewelry. Very striking because of the simple strong design in which often precious or semi-precious stones were processed. This jewelry was not hallmarked with the fish but with the letters G K in a shield together with a model number.
    After the second world war in 1947 the company was 1947 expropriated under the Soviet occupation law and Walter Kramer then fled to Lübeck-Rostock to continue his company. The State-owned company went on under the name "VEB Fischland-Schmuck". In 1959 Walter won the patent dispute making the State-owned company changed its name to "VEB Ostsee-Schmuck". Walter died in 1990 in Lubeck-Travemunde. The patent rights went back to Ribnitz in 2009. The current owner is the Ribnitzer Amber Gallery E.

      I love these too! I swear I just saw some earrings like that and fell in love with them! Great post with lots of info Bonnie. I was wondering what the numbers were all about, I did know the 835. Funny thing, I recently had a jeweler I thought was decent, until he said no one stamps jewelry on the outside! What? Ok, bye!!! haha

      @shareurpassion > I can show that jeweler so many silver and gold pieces with stamps on the outside, his head would spin. Egyptian precious metal jewelry is nearly ALWAYS stamped on the outside, usually somewhere within the design.

      Nice collection Bonnie, is the ring connected in back, or sizeable? I like the earrings that look like drum sticks too! I think that they would go best with the ring! Thomas should like them too! :^D
      Nice post, good info! :^)

      Hey, you know, I was just having a conversation about the ring I have that is stamped on the outside and what that last jeweler told me. So I came right here to show proof. It's simple. It's true. Period. Thing with my ring is that it wasn't struck properly but I can see thru my loupe that there is something there, I have also tried seems like a million times and have not been able to get a clear photo of it so I could post it here.

      I've also had jewelers completely ruin jewelry that brought me to tears because they've ruined family heirlooms and I find it very hard to trust them especially when I come across a well known, well "respected" jeweler that says that to me. I suppose I just have to keep looking, I need to have an appraisal done and the task of finding one is much harder than I ever expected.

      Now I'm on a mission to get that photo clear. I'm going to post it when I do. I sure hope I get it done... Steppin' outside the box!!! ;)
