Vintage Kenneth Jay Lane KJL Black Domed Diamante Rhinestone Earrings

Details

Vintage Kenneth Jay Lane KJL Black Domed Diamante Rhinestone Earrings are a real statement piece! The domed shaped earrings appear to be lucite set with rhinestones encircled by a gold plated rim. Based on the guide to dating KJL jewelry (provided below), I believe these earrings to be older pieces circa mid 1960s. To more closely inspect photos, simply click on the binocular icon on the top right corner of any photo.

Excellent condition, there is the lightest of wear to the gold plated back. Measure 1 3/8" in diameter and approximately 1/2" deep and weigh 33 grams. (B-06-03-16-#3)

Kenneth J. Lane began his illustrious career in the Art Department of New York Vogue in 1954. It wasn't until 1963 that he headed out on his own after designing for Hattie Carnegie, the shoe designer Roger Vivier and rhinestone accented shoes for Dior. His jewelry is big, bold, dramatic and of superior workmanship and the use of fine stones that he personally developed with his supplier in Germany. His jewelry was signed with the K.J.L. logo for the first 10 years of production.

Kenneth Lane's earliest pieces were unsigned during his "handmade" phase which didn't last very long. Then came K.J.L. (1962 until even now). He started using Kenneth Lane in the late 1960's. Since then he's gone back and forth - with periods, without, with a copyright ©, with a registration ® mark. The best way to tell if a piece is old is to actually see it. Many of the 1960's pieces had an antiqued finish and had certain kinds and colors of plastic cabochons he doesn't use anymore. Kenneth Lane is one of those designers who almost never retires a piece permanently.

Guide to dating this jewelry below.
1. 1962-1970's - K.J.L. with periods, first mark used (no copyright symbol), mark used in other stores in cities that also had a Saks
2. 1960's - KENNETH © LANE, with a big ©, an early mark for pieces sold exclusively at Saks Fifth Avenue. The © symbol was dead center in the logo. There was also another early mark with the © symbol moved to the bottom preceding LANE on the logo
3. 1970's - KJL without periods
4. 1970's - KENNETH © LANE, with very small ©
5. 1980's - K.J.L.© with periods
6. 1980's - K.J.L.® with periods
7. 1980's - KENNETH©LANE, © is centered
8. 1980's to 1990's KENNETH JAY LANE or KENNETH LANE -, used in his own franchise stores
9. 1980's to 2004 KENNETH © LANE - K.J.L. for AVON or KENNETH LANE for AVON -. The jewelry from the 1980's and 1990's are all signed K.J.L. for Avon. 2001 and later; most recent K.J.L. for Avon is not signed K.J.L. for Avon, but simply KJL. Only the box that the jewelry came in has the Avon name and address on it. It would be wise to keep the boxes for authenticity.
10. 1991-2000, ©KJL mark used for QVC, no periods with the copyright mark preceding the "K".
11. 1990 to now, KENNETH©LANE with © on the same line as LANE.

I have a vast inventory of some of the most desirable designers; Boucher, Carnegie, Ciner, DeLizza and Elster (aka Juliana), Eisenberg, Haskell, Hobe, Kramer, Krementz, Lane, Schreiner, Schiaparelli, Trifari, Vendome, and Weiss as well as Avon, Coro, Sara Coventry, and Lisner.

Numerous pieces are book pieces and many have matching pieces so many demi-parures are available. I acquired so much of this jewelry that I will be working on offering it in the store for years to come.

This jewelry comes from a dear friend and a truly exceptional lady. While having an antique shop, she has collected these fine designer pieces for the last 40 years and has an incredibly discerning eye for quality as well as unique and special pieces. The extensive nature of her collection has meant that she has not worn most pieces more than once.

It is my distinct pleasure that she has chosen to pass her extensive collection on to me. I know that I will be keeping some special pieces for myself and will also be offering many pieces in store as well. Please know that with each piece comes a wonderful legacy of a very special lady that makes this jewelry all the more special.

Her collection includes some of the most desirable designers; Boucher, Carnegie, Ciner, DeLizza and Elster (aka Juliana), Eisenberg, Haskell, Hobe, Lane, Philippe for Trifari, Schreiner, Schiaiparelli, Vendome, and Weiss as well as Coro, Coventry, Kramer, Krementz, Lisner, and Trifari.

Numerous pieces are book pieces and many had matching pieces so many demi-parures are available. I acquired so much of this jewelry that I will be working on offering it in the store for years to come.

There are additional antique and vintage necklaces and earrings in the Necklaces, Pendant, Earrings, and as well as the Bakelite, Lucite, and Other Plastics Studio Categories.

There are also other antique and vintage costume and plastic jewelry (bakelite, lucite, celluloid, and figurals), collectibles, books, art, glass, china, kitchen, home decor, and retro pieces in the store.

The doll I received isn't the one from the picture. Only one flower on her hat and missing tags. For $100 I expect what I paid for. I am incredibly dissapointed and will not shop with seller again.

What a great seller. Took extra photos for me and emailed them. Very easy to communicate with, and I got exactly what I expected-a beautiful vintage dress for my son's wedding, that was in excellent condition.
