The costume jewellery industry flourished in the 1980s, and women experienced a new freedom and confidence to wear frankly fake fashion jewellery. This was boosted by the glitz and glamour of TV soaps such as Dallas and Dynasty where jewelry could not be too big or bold. The fashion hallmarks of the decade were big shoulders, big hair and co-ordinating costume jewellery. Hair was teased and ratted out, and this ‘big’ hair cried out to be balanced by glitzy jewellery in gilt settings with huge fake looking stones. Hair accessories of the period were certainly neither small nor delicate and tended to be very much over the top!

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 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. Each crystal gem is the finest possible Austrian or German crystal. The gold and silver plating are heavy and thick and will never deteriorate or tarnish. Each piece of jewelry is carefully assembled and finished in the US by artisans who are carefully trained to meet the exacting standards of his COUTURE collection.
