I saw one of his bracelets featured in Lucky this month. It was really gorgeous. It kind of reminds me of gaudy versace jewelry of something, but I think it is a good contrast with modern clothing.

kenneth jay lane designed jewelry in the 70's...
he was very very popular aroung the time of studio 54...halston...etc...

he disappeared for a long time and then made a comeback in recent years...
his stuff is usually very 'over the top'...
big, chunky, shiny...
a bit retro...slightly gaudy and maybe a little 'grandma-ish'...
**if you have a nice jewish grandma who lives in boca raton...


it is very sturdy stuff and i believe there are actually TONS of original pieces from his 'hey day' floating around in thrift stores around the US...

he is an american...so this is where you will find it for the most part...
he's rather 'kitsch'...

I have some Kenneth Jay Lane pieces and I them. I only have necklaces and they are different and chunky. I only have his vintage stuff, but I do like the bracelets he's making now.

Yes, his stuff is well done ... it may be best worn a piece at a time

He also does shoe ornaments for Hollywould ... I ordered some last year but the color of the coral enamel was off and clashed with all other things coral, so back they went. I rather like ornamented shoes even though I very rarely wear brooches, don't wear bracelets, don't really like wearing necklaces ... but for whatever reason, jewelry on my shoes works for me :p

I'd love a Kenneth Jay Lane ring. It's so...big and shiny. I'm not a big-and-shiny-jewellery kind of girl, but his stuff appeals to me for some reason.

Quality
Part of the beauty of his older pieces is that they are so well made that they will not have lost their lustre. He has designed pieces for Jackie Kennedy Onassis, Elizabeth Taylor, Diana Vreeland, and Audrey Hepburn. He is particularly known for his three-strand faux pearl necklace worn by Barbara Bush to the inaugural ball. It has been said that the Duchess of Windsor is buried in his jewelled belt of which she was so fond.

Thanks for posting that link. I love his stuff too and the fact that it is elegant but affordable. I am dying for that black strawberry necklace.
