Kenneth Jay Lane, famous jewelry designer of costume jewelry, collaborated with Avon to help them join the ranks of famous designers and producers of high end jewelry. In 2002, he designed this gorgeous "Panther Collection" for Avon featuring a beautiful panther's head. Lane was inspired to make this necklace based on the Duchess of Windsor, but where he used glass beads, she had real pearls.
This full Kenneth Jay Lane Collection Panther Collection is extremely difficult to obtain. It has taken me 2 years to find and purchase these items to offer to you. This is one of the high end Kenneth Jay Lane Avon jewelry collection.
The necklace is 19" (large) of 8 strands of jet black glass beads with faceted crystal accenting the silver-tone panther clasp. Both the necklace and clip earrings are in the doorknocker style with faceted crystal accents. Each piece of this collection is studded with emerald colored eyes. The pin is a crouching panther studded with faceted crystals as are the matching clip earrings. And notice the beautiful sapphire-colored collar around his neck. They all have faceted black "spots" sprinkled around the faceted crystals.
The necklace measures a total of approximately 19" long and approximately 1 1/2" wide. For those who like the torsade look, you can twist the glass black beads to create the neck-hugging style. The panther's head on the necklace measures approximately 1 3/8" by 1" and is 3/4" deep. The clasp under his head has a hook that attaches to the hoop, creating a seamless panther's head necklace with no clasp. Each piece is signed "KJL for Avon" on the inside.
These are pre-owned and in excellent condition with no missing stones, no indications of dullness, tarnish or wear and nothing missing, bruised or bumped. These will be shipped in a jewelry box. Stock photos.
