Made by
Kramer in the 1960’s, AMOURELLE jewelry looks like a cousin…
and sometimes a twin… to Miriam Haskell jewelry. That is because it was
designed for Kramer by former Haskell head designed Frank Hess. Wonderfully designed,
delicately worked, and easy to wear, it can unfortunately be very difficult to find.

AMOURELLE brooch of topaz-colored
glass cabochon and rhinestones set in gold tone petals on a filigree back, circa 1960, 1-7/8". Designed
by Frank Hess, the former head designer for Miriam Haskell, this has the
artistic sensibility and matte gold tone finish like his Haskell
jewelry. 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

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.
