About the Artist:
“Women of all ages love costume jewelry because it's fun, it's fashionable, and it makes a woman feel younger,” claims Kenneth Jay Lane, who is celebrating 50 years as one of the world's most innovative fashion jewelry designers. Kenneth's client list reads like a Who's Who in Hollywood, glittering with First Ladies, royalty and celebrities; and his chic designs are always "just right" for any occasion.
Kenneth J. Lane was first a shoe designer for Delman and Christian Dior, and he used his free time to create fun and flashy baubles. They were such an instant success that Saks Fifth Avenue sold its entire initial inventory in one day.
He has created unique designs for Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Elizabeth Taylor, Diana Vreeland and Audrey Hepburn. He is probably most well known for his three-strand faux pearl necklace worn by Jacqueline Kennedy during her husband's presidency, a version of which was worn by Barbara Bush to her husband's inaugural ball. Some say that the Duchess of Windsor is buried in the jeweled belt that Lane created for her.
His continued philosophy is that “elegance, good taste and luxury never go out of style.” Current stars wearing his jewelry include the Olsen twins, Sarah Jessica Parker, Mischa Barton, Jessica Simpson, Paris Hilton, and Britney Spears.
This fabulous vintage parure includes a hard-to-find set of white plastic rose necklace and earrings. Designed by Kenneth J. Lane for Avon, the seemingly carved white plastic roses studded with small clear rhinestones have been set into gold-tone metal. Attached to the rose pendant of the necklace is an 18-inch chain of quarter-inch, round black plastic beads. The chain can be linked to the extender loop on the back of the rose pendant so the necklace can be worn choker-style. The earrings are clip-ons.
This costume jewelry parure is in excellent condition with no discernible flaws. The earring clips and necklace extender are in good working order. The hallmark “KJL for Avon” has been stamped both on the back of the rose pendant and earrings.
This white plastic rose set would make for an excellent gift for any special occasion. Or, if you’re a fan of Kenneth J. Lane costume jewelry, then add this parure to your collection.
