Kenneth J. Lane is one of America's most noted costume jewelry designers. He designed for Miriam Haskell before beginning his own line in 1963, which was sold in Saks Fifth Avenue and high end boutiques. We believe this necklace to be circa 1960s-70s. It is composed of thousands of small discs stacked together in colors of white mother-of-pearl, slate blue and slate green spaced with reeded Russian gold metal beads. The necklace measures 30 3/4" long and is 3/4" wide. It has a oval screw closing and an attached rectangular tag that reads, "(C) KENNETH LANE". The necklace is in very good vintage condition. They are strung on a clear nylon cord. The mother-of-pearl iridescence is not evident unless you separate the discs and look at them. A very classy necklace true to Kenneth Lane's style! Thank you for looking.
