Amourelle
JEWELRY
 

Made by Kramer in the early 1960's, AMOURELLE jewelry looks like a cousin... and sometimes a twin... to Miriam Haskell jewelry. That is because it was beautifully designed by former Miriam Haskell head designer Frank Hess. Because much less of it was made than Haskell, it is often difficult to find but worth the search.

Made by Kramer in the early 1960's, Amourelle jewelry looks like a cousin... and sometimes a twin... to Miriam Haskell jewelry and that is because it was designed by Frank Hess for both makers.   View   #X33239

According to those who worked in the jewelry industry, the practice of designers using each other's pieces as inspiration was common, as was the "borrowing" of ideas for the use and combinations of beads, findings and designs. The sets shown directly above, one by Haskell and one marked Amourelle, were designed by Frank Hess, but for different companies at slightly different times.

PLEASE NOTE: Regretfully, it is no longer possible to respond to individual questions regarding jewelry history, identification or value, or to offer written or verbal appraisals or opinions. The demand for this kind of information is absolutely too overwhelming for one dealer to fill. 
I love jewelry, but appraising and selling are two entirely different businesses, and I choose selling as my business.

Instead, articles are added on a regular basis to JEWEL CHAT on line Magazine, a wonderful reference for  information on many makers and styles of vintage jewelry.
