This large Kenneth Lane gold embellished orange coral shell brooch is a harder to find vintage piece. The brooch is resin with 9 gold dots and details. The back is gold tone and stamped KENNETH © LANE indicating that it was a piece sold exclusively at Saks Fifth Avenue. The pin is straight and has a c-clasp lock. The brooch is in good condition. All the gold dots are firmly in place with one dot having some wear/damage. There are some surface scratching and two tiny paint chips on the bottom back hard to see but worth mentioning, please see photos. The brooch measures about 2 1/8 inches wide x 2 1/8 inches tall x and 3/4 of an inch deep. The Brooch comes in an unmarked box. It is a uniquely fun and bold brooch that will certainly catch the eye making it a statement piece.
A little about KJL- Kenneth Jay Lane was a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design and is known for his costume jewelry. He launched his first line in 1963 while he designed bejeweled shoes for Dior. He made his mark immediately on the fashion world when he covered inexpensive plastic bangles with rhinestones, added findings, and turned them into excessively large earrings. His talent at copying high end jewelry from a quick glimpse proved popular. His clients such as Jackie Kennedy, Elizabeth Taylor & Audrey Hepburn commissioned fake jewels from Lane, it allowed them to wear jewelry more freely. 1960's through the 1970's Lane produced brooches and other pieces that reflected Asian influences, incorporating everything from Buddhas to dragons to Indian goddesses in his work. Lane was also known for his animal shapes covered in enamel and rhinestones. Lane produced a line for Avon in the 80's and a line for QVC in the 90's. Kenneth passed away in 2017.
