Just when we think we know 'the look' of Kenneth J. Lane, along comes a piece to surprise us. This eclectic designer was full of surprises with an ever-evolving exciting line of costume jewelry.
This vintage Kenneth Lane estate necklace takes earthy stones to heavenly heights. A strand of assorted gemstone beads come in a variety of natural colors. The disk beads are highly polished to bring out all the beautiful nuances of the stones. They seem to include Jasper, granite, onyx, quartz and jade.
Then there's the central pendant made of genuine Bloodstone (Heliotrope). Swirls of dark greens are naturally 'splotched' with shades of red resembling blood. If you read about the healing energies and metaphysical properties of Bloodstone, you'll find it's purported to cure everything but the dreaded hangnail. We certainly believe in its 'beautification' power but can't vouch for the rest of the legends.
The Bloodstone disk pendant measures 2 inches across. It's about 1/4 inch thick. The necklace measures 16 inches around with the beads at 8mm to 9mm. There's a secure fishhook clasp and a brass hangtag marked c KENNETH LANE. Circa 1980s. Excellent condition.
