Vintage Dior by Kramer Drop Earrings 1960s
This pair of vintage Christian Dior clip earrings was made for Dior by American costume jeweller Kramer in the late 1950s or early 1960s. Kramer was licenced by Dior in the 1950s and 1960s to produce Christian Dior jewellery for the American market. These sophisticated earrings feature three graduated black glass cabochons set with dog-tooth style prongs, made popular by Schreiner in the 1960s. The black glass contrasts nicely with the silver-tone metal.
These are in great condition and the clips work and hold well. The earrings feel substantial without feeling heavy on the ears.
Stamped 'Christian Dior by Kramer 'on an oval plaque attached to the back of one of the earrings.
Christian Dior launched his fashion house in 1947 and from the beginning designed jewellery to complement the 'New Look' clothing he was creating. He used only the most talented and reputable companies to manufacture his jewellery designs. You'll see pieces for Dior by Kramer, Mitchel Maer, and Grosse.
