First word that comes to mind when I look at these Earrings is…KNOCKOUT
From my PERSONAL COLLECTION, here are an OUTSTANDING pair of Shoulder Duster Earrings by the famed master of glitz & opulence, KENNETH JAY LANE.
I cannot say enough about KJL’s 1960s Earrings…I love them so much that on the short list of things I personally collect, at the very top are KJL’s 60’s Earrings. I am letting these go only because I have a few pairs in gold and crystal and it doesn’t seem right that they are not getting the recognition and admiration they deserve!
These beauties measure a whopping 4.5” long and 1.75” wide, consisting of golden filigree open heart sections speckled with prong-set crystal chaton rhinestones, with 5 strands of prong-set rhinestone chains graduating in length, with layers of bezel set faceted crystal stones, with a flower shaped clip station consisting of a large prong-set chaton in the center bordered with smaller stones.
Made by Delizza & Elster (better known for Juliana Jewelry) for Kenneth Jay Lane. These earrings sparkle & dance as you move and definitely will get you noticed. I have never worn a pair of KJL’s 60’s Earrings without someone asking me who makes my earrings.
Hallmarked “K.J.L.” which is the hallmark used in the 1960s
These earrings are featured in the book “Juliana Jewelry The Last Generation” by Paula Knutson & Karla Wacker, on page 267
Earrings measure 4.5" Long x 1.75" Wide
