Kenneth Jay Lane began his career in the 1960s with beautiful faux pearl necklaces. This early KJL necklace is an excellent example and is a smashing combination of white pearls, faceted black glass beads and small black and rhinestone studded spacers. The rhinestones in the black spacers make each individual pearls really stand out. A glamorous version of his famous three-strand simulated pearl necklaces. Fun 1920s flapper style. #JN14
KJL is one of the most successful costume jewelers of all time. He got his start designing shoes for Delman and Christian Dior, using his free time to create fun and flashy jewelry. By the late 60s, he had opened his own design house. Lane has designed jewelry across the price spectrum from unique design from Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis to Avon; from Bergdorf Goodman to QVC. His jewelry is known for its high quality and incredible style range including classic gold metal earrings to ethnic tribal pieces and even over the top rococo and baroque pieces. Every woman should have at least one piece of KJL in her collection. KJL has designed for many companies over the past 50 years and the age of his pieces can be determined by the mark.
