This is one of Kenneth J Lane's lavish Maltese Cross pins. The beautiful rhinestones and five faux colored stones are set in gold covered metal. Each corner has a faux pearl with gold wrapped around it. The large center glass ruby is faceted and surrounded by rhinestones. In two corners are faceted glass emerald smaller stones and smaller faceted sapphires in the other two corners. The back has a large safety clasp. There is a plague on the back signed: Kenneth (on first line) and c/r circle Lane (2nd line.) This signature dates the pin from the 1960's.
The pin/brooch is a prime example of Lane's genius at creating extravagant jewelry that many famous women wear and collect. It is in mint condition!
