This is an outstanding Maltese cross brooch made by Kenneth Lane in the 1960s. Early Kenneth Lane Maltese cross brooches are very collectible, as they were crafted like the best fine jewelry.

This brooch is made from gold plated metal and thin washes of enamel. The enamel is a lovely shade of cafe au lait that has an ombre look gradiating to a rich chocolate color. The enamel features the customary craquelure of thin fine enamel.

At the center of the cross is a large prong set oval striated rose quartz art glass cabochon. Surrounding this oval are eleven small round clear rhinestones. Fanning out around the clear stones are eleven prong set emerald green cabochons that have a very unusual fancy shape. They fall between an oval and a marquis cut with pointed ends and a unique ridge running along the top. Surrounding these emerald cabochons are eleven small clear round rhinestones. Sitting within decorative cutouts at the four inner corners of the cross are prong set round striated rose quartz art glass cabochons, each beautiful and unique.

This brooch features a pin back and is signed "K.J.L." in an oval cartouche.
