"Elegance, good taste, and luxury never go out of style," says Kenneth Jay Lane, whose glamorous jewelry has made him the king of costume couture. CZ by Kenneth Jay Lane is the designer’s exquisite cubic zirconia collection of glittery tennis and bangle bracelets, eye-catching, pear-shaped pavé drop earrings, feminine collar necklaces, and bold rings. Originally a shoe designer for Dior and other exclusive fashion houses, Lane was a mainstay of 1960s high society and a personal friend of luminaries such as Andy Warhol, Truman Capote, and Jackie Onassis. For decades his tasteful but fun designs have adorned the world’s most stylish women, including Audrey Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor, and Madonna (fun fact: former First Lady Barbara Bush famously wore a three-strand faux pearl Kenneth Jay Lane necklace to her husband's inaugural ball). In addition to CZ by Kenneth Jay Lane, the designer offers a full line of costume jewelry, belts, and eyewear. His elegant vintage baubles are collectibles often sold at auction by Christie’s and Sotheby’s.
