This spectacular vintage set is classic KJL - big, bold and beautiful! It features a runway-style necklace with oversized Lucite cabochons in red, blue and purple, with matching earrings. It is reminiscent of the poured glass styles Gripoix designed for the House of Chanel.
This set was designed in the 80s as part of KJL's Avon series and remains highly collectible today. From early days with Hattie Carnegie and Christian Dior, Kenneth Jay Lane rose to become a powerhouse in costume jewelry, adorning Jackie Kennedy and the Duchess of Windsor.
Later in his career, he partnered with Avon to get mass appeal. This is a book piece, listed in ''Identifying Avon Jewelry" by Sandra Sturdivat. This set is in mint condition. Signed.
The necklace measures approx. 18" and the earrings 1 1/2" x 1 5/8" each.
