Vintage Kenneth Jay Lane

Bakelite bangles aren’t the only popular accessory amongst the advanced style set. The lovely women above are all fans of Kenneth Jay Lane’s elegant and inspired designs. The frogs are a personal favorite of mine — which do you like the best?

  • Definitely the frog.
    Happy NEW YEAR to all of you, dear friends, who make the world a better place.

  • All beautiful ladies! I would definitely wear that lizard brooch!

  • I (personally) don't care that much about the jewelry. But what gorgeous profiles and faces!!!

    "It is far better to grasp the Universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring."
    – Carl Sagan (1934-1996)

  • I don't really like frogs, but these rings are so pretty! 🙂

    Oh I love that gal with the beige hat and matching coat, her brooch is pretty snazzy too. I love her look so much!

  • ¡¡¡Qué estilazo!!!
    Mi admiración para ellas.

  • What about the lizard brooch! Lovely!

  • Great looks!! XOXO

  • I would have to agree with Auntie Sezz. The beautiful faces made the exquisite jewelry look so stunning. If I were to pick though, I would go with the seashells.

  • I looove KJL, I'm always stalking some incredible vintage pieces on eBay, but unfortunately they're pretty pricey :/

    I love it all, being a frog/lizard/sea creature kind of gal. But my fav are the sea snails with the gold and green gems. Very nic.

  • The frog but all of them look absolutly stunning!!!

  • The snail shells all the way!

  • The snail shells all the way!

  • I love these photos, real beauty!

  • Great jewelry!The cheekbones on the first woman are to die for and I love the shot with the lady with the black in her hair.

  • Gorgeous photos of gorgeous women. They have such a strong air about them. And my favorites are the seashells. They just make them look even more powerful.

    we follow your blog religiously. Thanks for all of the inspiration.

  • The frogs are so cute but I think my favorite would have to be that salamander brooch.

  • Hi. I must say I really like the blog, and that it is almost more interesting than those of my age who blogs about fashion.
