1960s Kenneth Jay Lane Green Bug Brooch

About

This is a green Kenneth Jay Lane bug brooch from the 1960s. The bug's body is made out of a white glass stone. The head and wings are made out of green resin beads. It measure 2 1/8" long and 1 7/8" wide. It is marked, "K.J.L." on a plaque on the back of the brooch - the earliest mark used by Kenneth Jay Lane which dates it to the 1960s. It is in very good condition with just slight wear due to the age of the piece. Kenneth Jay Lane was born in 1930 in Detroit, MI. He founded his costume jewelry firm in 1963. His designs were so popular that his initial collection at Saks Fifth Avenue sold out in one day. Lane’s jewelry has been worn by Diana Vreeland, Jacqueline Kennedy, Audrey Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor, and Diana the Princess of Wales. One of Lane’s best known pieces is the three-strand imitation pearl necklace that was worn by Jacqueline Kennedy. Lane has appeared in Andy Warhol films, was mentioned in a song by by Lou Reed and appeared on numerous Best Dressed Lists.
