Founded in 1943, it didn't take long for Louis Kramer and his two brothers to create a high class costume jewelry empire known to the world as Kramer of New York.
Coveted for their interesting, limited number designs, Kramer pieces utilized only the highest quality materials including Austrian rock crystals, gilded metal with black enamel, artificial pearls and faux semi precious stones.
One look at a Kramer piece and it's easy to see why it caught the eye of Christian Dior.
Kramer and Dior teamed up in the 1950s with Kramer creating luxury jewelry lines under the Dior umbrella. Given Dior's immense popularity -- following the 1947 release of his "New Look" collection -- Kramer's Dior line was much more expensive than his namesake line.
This exquisite piece features all of the Kramer trademarks: large, brilliant Austrian crystals, artificial pearls, gilded metal, and a design to complement any couture Dior piece!
