Krementz & Co, Inc

George Krementz founded his company in 1860’s Newark, New Jersey as a creator of men’s jewelry. They used rolled gold plate to create a high quality line of costume jewelry that was by no means cheap. According to Krementz jewelry advertisements of the time, the 14k gold overlay was thirty times as thick as the gold plating in ordinary costume jewelry. The fine quality of the pieces means they are durable and many pieces remain in excellent condition.

I have been drawn to vintage costume jewelry since I was a teenager borrowing my grandmother's rhinestone encrusted bracelets. I started selling in order to refresh my personal collection, and fell in love with hunting for and restoring vintage costume jewelry. Re:Collection is my way of sharing this passion with other vintage jewelry lovers. At my Ruby Lane Shop, you will find a curated collection of vintage costume jewelry, as well as antique and vintage glass, mid-century kitchenware, and other treasures.
