Krementz & Company

Krementz & Company- (Newark, NJ)- founded 1866

An album of Krementz antique and vintage jewelry that I've been putting together for a while. These are pieces that we have either had in inventory at one time and sold throughout the decades, or currently have in existing inventory that is available. Early Krementz is exquisite, in my humble opinion, and not to be confused with the later Krementz pieces. Through time Krementz jewelry became less expensive transitioning from gorgeous well crafted solid gold/gemstone/enamel pieces to gold filled inexpensive ones. Even the latter less expensive pieces though, maintained a high level of craftsmanship. The earlier solid 14k gold turn of the century Edwardian and Art Deco pieces are highly collectible, particularly those with colorful enamel. Value on the enamel peices vary greatly but condition is of the utmost concern. The enamel must be in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, missing or damaged enamel, or evidence of enamel repair. If purchasing enamel peices examine condition carefully with a 10X magnifying jewelers loupe.

All enamel pieces should be carefully examined for damage. The center petals of the cobalt blue enamel are worn down to the chalky base, and feels "rough" to the touch. Examine closely for not only damage, but also for evidence of enamel repair.
