If this incredible early Kenneth Lane necklace isn't in a book, it should be. We couldn't find another like it anywhere and we searched hard, as much as time would allow.
This jeweled mega-sized stunner features a round pendant...3 3/4 inches each way. The large jewels are bright red and purple Lucite (or some type of resin from the era). Rows of clear crystal rhinestones are prong set and weave around the large stones.
The attached necklace chain measures 21 inches around and is set with more clear rhinestones. The stones on the pendant are open backed so the light shines through when it can (see front and back photos of the back-lit pendant).
The back is hallmarked with Kenneth Lane's early signature which was simply the ~ K.J.L. ~ ...periods with no copyright mark.
This necklace is typical of his early large jeweled theatrical and dramatic pieces. This one was well adored and cared for. The stones are all intact and bright. Metal looks good. The rhinestone on the hook clasp is still there.
Excellent vintage condition. A rare and highly collectible Lane necklace. Late 1960s.
