"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 statement necklaces to eye-catching earrings, cabochon rings and chunky bracelets, Lane’s elegant baubles are beloved by Hollywood and Park Avenue alike. 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, Lane creates belts, eyewear, and the cubic zirconia collection CZ by Kenneth Jay Lane. Many of his vintage pieces are collectibles sold at auction by Christie's and Sotheby's.
