Kenneth Jay Lane
Elegance, luxury and good taste never go out of style, says Kenneth Jay Lane - and he should know. His fabulous costume jewelry has caught the eye of the world's most glamorous women for over four decades. Moreover, Kenneth Jay Lane jewelry pieces are now as sought-after and collectable as precious gems, with vintage pieces selling at Christies and Sotheby's.

Michigan-born Kenneth Jay Lane graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1954 and moved to New York for a stint as a Vogue Art Director. This whet his appetite for fashion, and made him realize that he wanted to design and create the products he saw around him. Shoes were his starting point - he worked on collections for Delman and Christian Dior - and it was whilst working for the latter that he began to embellish shoes with rhinestones and play around with ideas for jewelry. Before long Kenneth Jay Lane collections were being snapped up by hot boutiques across Manhattan, as well as royalty and movie stars, and he was proving that costume jewelry could be as beautiful as the "real thing" .

Fast-forward to today and the Kenneth Jay Lane name has become a by-word for glamour. This season heralds a fabulous collection that is perfect for Fall's love of all oversized jewelry. Shimmering crystal- encrusted bangles add evening glamour to the most simple outfit, or the fabulous gold and black Kenneth Jay Lane necklaces are perfect with Fall's chic black dresses. However you chose to dress with them now, they will be equally wearable in seasons to come; as Lane himself says, "I like to create jewelry that can be worn any time of the year. Glamour is all year round."

These earrings are as shown on the model. The hoop is a little close to the space where you insert the backing, and since the backing has the plastic ring on it common to many earrings, the space does get a little tight. But I really like these earrings and look forward to wearing them frequently!

These are nice statement earrings. I wore them with a minimalist outfit so they were just the right touch. A little heavy, but not too bad. Perhaps a little pricey for what they are, but they are a nice addition that will stand the test of time

Nice size and truly gorgeous detail but heavy and the gold color is gold with a little bit of highlighter yellow in it. Too yellow for me, but may work well with your coloring.

Not clear in the description that the earring is actually a hunk of wood and separate clasp. Ugh! Comfort unknown because didn’t even care to try them on.

I do love the style of the earring but was disappointed in the material. Reading the description I thought they would be tortoise material but in fact they are acrylic. No mention that they are acrylic in the description. They are also lighter in color then what they appear on-line. Still deciding if I will keep them...

The fastener in the back to keep them on is so outrageously tiny and delicate that I can’t do it without looking at it... which I can’t do when I’m putting on earrings, obviously. Returning.

A fun, well-made earring that is not too heavy. Wore them with a casual summer dress and they added the extra pop of color needed. Although they are a clip earring , they are were not uncomfortable.

The color is solid green without the ombre effect. Material is plastic like and light weight. Look really cheap, nothing like the picture.
