Vintage Kenneth Jay Lane Enamel Maltese Cross Brooch
Every time I find a vintage KJL brooch that is “affordable” it’s like hitting the lottery!
Love the soft grey edged in gold in this Kenneth Jay Lane triple enamel Maltese cross brooch with a matching gold custom made chain. Wear it long or double up with the modern oversized toggle. The clasp on the back allows the chain to be removed to be worn as a brooch.
Kenneth Jay Lane first came to public attention after the Duchess of Windsor purchased several pieces of jewelry and recommended him to her friends. Kenneth Jay Lane is known throughout the world for being the “Master of Fakes” and his incredible life is documented in the book called, “Faking It” which debuted in 1996.
He has created and designed for Elizabeth Taylor, Diana Vreeland, and Audrey Hepburn. The New York Times compared him to Coco Chanel for having successfully made faux jewelry chic!
