    Another small but lovely domed alexandrite brooch from Kramer, pre- 1955. It’s 1.5 x 1.5 inches, set in rhodium. All stones in every piece are prong set, some multi- pronged , as my latest addition has 10 prongs per stone. They’re not going anywhere! Also, all pieces are pre- 1955! Making them at least 65 years of age! As most of you know, it’s was our Phil who introduced me to this wondrous stone. When I first started collecting, I had no idea how many different designs Kramer made. I still don’t have a full parure. I have picked up most of these pieces separately and am piecing together sets. Gonna take me a long time, but that’s ok. Some of my pieces are set in gold-tone, others rhodium. My favorite so far, the small set in the back with bracelet, brooch ,and earrings with incredible faceted stones. All I need is the necklace! This set also comes in a double strand! And one with pearls! There’s no end! I tried to show the color change, but it’s been cloudy here, so the natural light was difficult to show. Sorry...
    Simple but elegant!
    ENJOY!

      Sorry Eileen, my copy did not take so now with the wrong thing. Now I cannot find it, sorry about that !~

      One of the first pieces I bid on was from a fairly high end auction house, and they had some their best display pieces to show it as it was a high end Kramer like yours. Wish I would have got that one, it blew me away !~

      Thanks for posting these lovely rhinestones from Kramer! Naturally I love the big bracelet, but also the necklace and 2 bracelets to the left. SO PRETTY, it's fun for me to see your "sets" and read the research and why you love and collect them.

      Maureen, like I said, I thought there were about 6 sets made by Kramer. Boy, was I wrong! I am close to completing a couple sets. It’s the brooches that are the hardest to find believe it or not. I’ll just keep looking...Thank you dear for loving the Alexandrite...

      Phil, as everyone knows by now, it’s all your fault! Lol It’s just I find this stone so incredible, I want all of Kramer’s designs! I know other jewelry companies used this stone too, but not to the extent that Kramer did! Thank you for loving my “sweet petite”! I wish you would of won that auction too, as I am curious about the piece that “ blew you away”.

      Scott, thank you for the kind comment. Maureen asked a long time ago to post my alexandrite brooches, so I thought I would show everyone what I had accumulated so far.
      It takes up one drawer in my armoire, time to work on drawer two! Ha!

      Thanks Mary, I love reading people’s commentaries, and how they came across a piece or the history behind it ( if they know). Not just describing the obvious..ho- hum!

      Kyra..No! There doesn’t seem to be, and thank goodness for that! Ha! Thank you for loving my Kramer Alexandrite Collection ( to date)....

      Thanks Phil, I just haven’t been in the buying mood lately. I do appreciate you thinking of me, and yes! I love the gorgeous blue slim navettes on this beautiful set! I am going post something I have had for a while today, since I haven’t posted in quite some time....

      And thank you Kevin & CoralSun for the love on my newest alexandrite piece! Very kind!
