    So far I am working on three sets out of the six Kramer made for their ALEXANDRIA COLLECTION.
    The necklace and earrings from this set came from a very nice seller that dropped their price by a third for me. The bracelet was a separate seller who wouldn't budge on the price, but was still very reasonable. (A girl has to try, right?) I still need a brooch for this set as I do my first set. In fact, there are two brooches in the first set. Sigh! These pieces are hard to come by, and I'm finding out, are not cheap! But alas, I want them, so I'll just keep looking, hoping for a bargain now and then. As I have spent my jewelry allowance for a while. Ha! The bracelet came with a brooch and earrings the seller thought matched, but it's given me a head start on my next "conquest". ( I'll post later on)
    These pieces have a variety of stones...oval, emerald, chaton, pear, crystal beads alternating on beautiful rhodium settings. Mint condition for 65+ years!
    These pictures just don't show the beauty, I tried :(

      Beautiful, incredibly beautiful and, as you say very hard to find. I wish you all the best in your hunt for more of these wonderful things.

      Thanks for sharing them.

      Gorgeous! Did I say Gorgeous? This set is way OTT!! So many different shapes and sizes of beautiful jewels. And, the photography is excellent too. Well done! :)

      Such classic designs and great quality of course. I love these pieces - my fave is the bracelet of course, but I love all you have here. Lovely dear!

      Thank you MrsT...
      My pictures really don't do justice..
      They sparkle so!

      Gillian, thanks so much for your kind sentiment, and I will keep up the hunt, though
      I am finding Kramer made much more of these pieces than I first thought! I'm in big
      trouble, ha!

      Broochman, I appreciate your comment on the photography, though as hard as I try, they just don't seem to show what I "see". I must of taken 20 pictures, but there's only so much you can do with a tablet camera:)
      Your compliment on the Kramer now is well received, so kind!

      Jenni, you are such a dear!
      As I said before, I am finding "new" pieces of sets I didn't know existed when I started this quest. There's even a set with "pearls". And one with oval stones encirled with tiny rs!
      Incredible stuff, with prices to do with them. I'll just keep looking.....

      Thank you Mary! Yes, the bracelet I had to have even though I would of liked to have found it for less. But then I found it on RL for more than twice what I paid! So...
      C' est la vie!

      And thank you for all the loves dears!
      Especially FORTAPACHE, who though I rarely leave the costume jewelry forum, fortapache ALWAYS finds time to hit the love button on my jewelry.Thank you so much for the kindness without expecting reciprocation!

      Thank you foseatme!
      Kramer kind of outdid themselves with this alexandrite collection, didn't they? Ha!
