Whimsical unique figural earrings; these rams must represent Aries, the first astrological sign of the Zodiac. Kenneth Jay Lane used many mythical creatures as inspiration for his bold jewelry designs. The expressions on the face of these horned rams is just precious and captivating. Each clip earring has the collectible and coveted K.J.L. mark (with the periods) which dates these to his early collections of the 1960s and 1970s. Jewelry from this early period is rare as are these earrings.

Each ram has a green cabochon eye and a forehead and ruff of pavé set clear rhinestones, all presented in a bright gold-plated base metal.

A very creative interpretation of Aries, with curves and triangles and much three dimensional. The faces are slightly different which I find just fascinating - that there was some creativity and originality in what one would have thought was massed produced costume jewelry. They are worn with the head facing up as shown in the first photo.

Kenneth Jay Lane (1932-2017) graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design, then worked for Christian Dior in New York. He launched his costume jewelry business in 1963 and his bold, colorful, and whimsical jewelry was sold in top stores like Bonwit Teller, Neiman Marcus, and Saks Fifth Ave. His brand grew even more successful when famous women like Jackie Kennedy, Audrey Hepburn, and Diana Vreeland, editor of Vogue wore his creations.
