The Kramer Jewelry Co. was started in 1942 by three brothers, Louise Kramer president, Morris Kramer, vice-president, and Harry Kramer, treasurer. The company was first known as the jewelry concern that created, “The Diamond Look.
Kramer designed many pieces for Christian Dior and designs exclusive to Paris.
The Christian Dior Kramer Deal
In April 1951, the Kramer Jewelry Co. announced that it would be “executing” Christian Dior’s American costume jewelry line. According to the announcement, Mr. Dior would design two collections annually featuring approximately 125 pieces. The jewelry was shown with Dior’s New York ready-to-wear clothing and was distributed to establishments who had exclusive rights to carry the Dior line. Initially, this line was to be known as, “Christian Dior Creations by Kramer.”
It’s important to note the word, “execute.” If Kramer of New York did in fact use jobbers, this would stand to reason for the use of the terminology, “execute” rather than “manufacture” the jewelry.
Additionally, and perhaps to create an intriguing marketing story, Mr. Kramer stated part of the Dior venture would introduce jewelry designs previously exclusive to the Paris market. Kramer indicated a group of Dior-Kramer branded jewelry would be presented in the United States with copyrighted protection.
