"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. From gold tone and crystal earrings to pearl textured oval rings, statement necklaces and chunky bracelets, Lane’s elegant vintage baubles are collectibles often sold at auction by Christie’s and Sotheby’s. Originally a shoe designer for Dior and other exclusive fashion houses, Lane was a mainstay of 1960s high society and a personal friend of 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 his main jewelry line and vintage pieces, Lane’s collection includes belts, eyewear, and CZ by Kenneth Jay Lane – a line of exquisite cubic zirconia jewelry.
