Kenneth Jay Lane K.J.L. Large Earrings, 1960s


This is a pair of large 1960s Kenneth Jay Lane clip-on earrings. Each earring measures 2 3/4 inches long x 1 7/8" wide. They are marked 'K.J.L.' on the back of each earring clip - the earliest mark used by Kenneth Jay Lane which dates to the 1960s. The earrings are in very good condition. They are featured on page 33 of Lane's book, "Faking It" (see image #11). Kenneth Jay Lane was born in 1930 in Detroit, MI. He founded his costume jewelry firm in 1963. His designs were so popular that his initial collection at Saks Fifth Avenue sold out in one day. Lane’s jewelry has been worn by Diana Vreeland, Jacqueline Kennedy, Audrey Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor, and Diana the Princess of Wales. One of Lane’s best known pieces is the three-strand imitation pearl necklace that was worn by Jacqueline Kennedy. Lane has appeared in Andy Warhol films, was mentioned in a song by by Lou Reed and appeared on numerous Best Dressed Lists.
