About Kenneth Jay Lane
His fabulous costume jewellery has caught the eye of the world's most glamorous women for over
four decades, including Jackie Onassis Elizabeth Taylor, Diana Vreeland and Audrey Hepburn. Moreover, his pieces are now as sought-after and as collectable as precious gems, with his vintage pieces selling at Christies and Sotheby's.
Michigan-born Lane graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1954 and moved to New York for a stint as a Vogue art director. This whet his appetite for fashion and made him realize
that he wanted to design and create the products he saw around him.
Before long his collections were being snapped up by hot boutiques across Manhattan, as well as by royalty and movie stars. He was proving that costume jewelry could be as beautiful as the "real thing."
As impressive as it is that royalty, celebrities, and socialites choose Lane's jewellery it is not his primary focus. The designer's creations are inspired with the everyday woman in mind. However you choose to wear each piece it will be equally wear-able today as it will be in seasons to come. Lane himself has said,
" I like to create jewellery that can be worn any time of the year, by any woman. Glamour is all year round."
