1960s Kenneth Jay Lane Costume Jewelry Clip-On Earrings
Offered by Route 66 WEST via 1stdibs these opulent 1960s KJL clip-on earrings are statement designs by much-loved designer Kenneth Jay Lane.
These are his iconic mogul design series – drop earrings from the exotic 1960s. Opaque aqua cabochons and square-cut and marquise-cut translucent faux amethyst stones, these are stunners. Accented by tiny white diamantes surrounding and encrusting the circular and oval prong-set (faux) turquoise cabochons, the look is opulent and uber-glamorous.
Signed on the clip-on earring mechanism, which is original and functions perfectly. The drop section of the earrings is approximately 2.75″ long and 2.25″ wide, and the circlet upper element is under 1″ in diameter. Excellent condition.
Gold Plate, Gold-filled, Sterling Silver, Vermeil (silver coated with gold), Yellow Gold, Lapis Lazuli, Multi-gemstone, Turquoise – the gemstones all faux, (or fake, as KJL would often say), this pair of clip-on earrings represents costume jewelry at its best.
