    While on the hunt for more alexandrite, I keep coming across Kramer sets I can’t resist. Reason for this set? Take a close look. There are nearly 200 stones hand set with eight (8) prongs each instead of the regular four (4). Also the colors are unique, topaz & grey, with NO AB!
    Like Phil says..Multi prongs took time, lots of time. This set is marked Kramer w/o the “C” for copyright. So that dates it pre-1955. This set is over 65 years old, yet in immaculate condition. The earrings also sold me on this set, they articulate..sway back and forth!
    And like I said...NO GLUE HERE!

      Fantastic set and I all hail hand praise the use of so many prongs defining what real costume jewellery is all about. Extavaganza all the way and this brings the real glory days of rhinestones into perspective !~ Magnifico eleganza !~

      Gorgeous set, Eileen! That seems to happen — “that” being our collections begin to grow beyond our early definitions. Smiles. Kramer does make beautiful jewellery; all those prongs. Love the colour (color) coordination.

      Absolutely stunning brooch set!!!! The color of the stones are so beautiful. Yes, the more prongs the better. Kramer is top notch jewelry! :-)

      This set is wonderful! Clear, topaz and grey - so subtle - just lovely. It will never go out of style. XOXO Agree - Kramer is top quality. NOW, to find the bracelet...

      Thank you MrsT....always in my corner! For one that finds such interesting and iconic pieces almost weekly, your praise makes me smile.

      Phil, I thought you might appreciate the multi-prongs. And you are so right, jewelry that has glued elements, though beautiful, are just not quite as impressive as jewelry that took hours upon hours to accomplish a “work of art”. ( that’s how I see such pieces) Sherman, for example, like you say, never used glue. And D & E, rarely, just on very small accents...

      Kyra, so kind of you, as always. This set is in such pristine condition, I almost thought it too good to be true. Then I thought, no one would go to this much trouble to make a “fake Kramer”. This is just one of those sets that went into a box or drawer and was forgotten for close to 7 decades. I plan on wearing this set!

      Bill, so nice of you to drop by. I’ll take that luck, as it seems I find new pieces Kramer made with Alexandrite will never end. Lol! ( and that’s ok!)

      Thank you Leanne, with your ever- growing posts of fabulous jewelry, it makes one very happy when a serious collector such as yourself, gives a compliment. The colors are subtle, but warm. Though I love D & E, Kramer is a close second favorite.

      Ken, Kramer is top- notch, some of their collections are incredible, such as The Alexandria Collection ( lol), and, of course, their Empress Collection. Your beautiful clear crystal set is most likely one of their “The Diamond Look” pieces...great minds think alike :)

      Mary, you’re funny and right! Collecting our favorite jewelry is never ending! Thank you for your sweet compliment!

      And thank you for all the loves, dears!

      Had to make up a Collection Of Prongs that you inspire me to make up. Hopefully I can add a lot of Eileen's gems in this collection !~

      Awe Phil, you are so kind. This set is wonderful. The earrings sway back and forth, are double sided. That and the beautiful gold plating, and condition sold me almost instantly on this set. I am posting a first for me this week, waiting on another “piece to the puzzle” in the mail....

      I added this first I think to my MASTERPIECE OF PRONGS Collection, well planned !~
    12. Ms.CrystalShip Ms.CrystalShip, 1 month ago
      Phil! You honor me. Kramer doesn’t come close to Sherman in design or quality, ( well, maybe a little) but this set is one of those that I had to have. If you do the math, 200 stones X 8 prongs=1,600 prongs in total!
