Avon jewelry authority and author Sandra Sturdivant, in her book "Identifying AVON JEWELRY", described this brooch/pin as "elaborate gold bow studded with crystals."
This is the gorgeous Kenneth Jay Lane (KJL) Avon 1993 "Lustrous Bow Collection" Brooch & Clip Earrings featuring shiny silver-tone bows with crystal accents. The brooch measures approximately 2¾" wide and 2½" tall and the clip earrings measures approximately 1½" wide and 1½" tall. There are not just a few crystal accents but each entire bow is heavily studded with crystals. Each piece is signed on a cartouche on the back "KJL for Avon". What a great design by Kenneth Jay Lane ~ his trademark being "Jeweler to the World's Most Admired Women".
The gorgeous brooch and clip earrings are pre-owned and in excellent vintage condition. They appear to be well taken care of appearing to never have been worn or worn very little. There are no indications of dullness, tarnish, or wear. The brooch comes in its original box, but the clip earrings will be shipped in a jewelry box.
Kenneth Lane signed his pieces "KJL for Avon" from 1986 through 1995. In 2000, he began to sign his pieces simply "KJL".
