    Ms.Crystal…
    (122 items)

    I've had this Kenneth Lane brooch for years.
    It's the RED & ICE combo that grabbed me on this one. It's also one that I could never part with, and I've parted with many :(
    One Sunday morning in Church, our wonderful singer was leading us in a final Hymn, when she all of a sudden studdered, (like she forgot the words) but after a couple seconds continued on.
    After Mass, she came up to me and said," I've never stopped in the middle of a song before, but when I looked over your way, your brooch took my breathe and words away!" I had on a white sweater so it really stood out( I guess). We had a good laugh over the whole thing and parted ways.
    I never wore this to church again :)
    ENJOY!

      It's incredibly BEAUTIFUL!! No wonder your cantor stuttered, it's a real showstopper for sure!

      That's a great memory! Love the brooch, it would take my breath away too :-)

      The red is wonderful, I can see why she stopped and love the claw set construction !~

      Hello friends, I spaced out and forgot to come back and thank everyone :(

      Jenni, I've seen a lot of his/her designs that seem to be the same. Then again I have a KJL that is identical to DeNicola ( my Aries, only $$$ cheaper). I believe that's why Trifari had the sense to patent their designs.

      Thank you Scott ..I so appreciate your comment!

      Mary, yeah, it's a biggie. Poor woman, I did feel for her, but like I said we laughed it off.

      Phil...what a nice compliment...the red is a "grabber"!

      Thank you Ken...yes, it's pretty big, never seen another like it either. If I do, I'll be sure to let you know :)

      Laura & MrsT. You are both so kind!

      And thank you for all the loves, dears!

      Wowwwww. What a lovely brooch! It so classic. Thanks for sharing the mark as well.

      Thank you for stopping by and your kind words Elisabethan!

      That's a stunner and a great story! Looks like an earlier KJL piece, too. They are are so rare and sought after.

      Hi Maureen, just caught your comment.
      I believe this dates in the 1980’s. The ones that I really love are his 1960’s pieces. ( check out SammyZ’s!!) One has to be careful if you want his older pieces as his designs were mass produced by QVC. I have literally seen a dozen of the same star design on eBay, they’re everywhere! No thanks!

      Oops, I meant “sammytheopulenthippo”
      Her collection is incredible, so sad she sold most of them. Wish I was around when she did :)

      Imagine if this had a pearl drop or red pearl drop hanging from it, the singer has fainted again !~
    13. Ms.CrystalShip Ms.CrystalShip, 11 months ago
      I’m surprised it didn’t as KJL made some very elaborate ( and down right gaudy ) pieces. Thank you Phil for bringing up one of my very first posts! So very kind, my friend!

      wonderful piece and and even more wonderful story. I think the white sweater with the red brooch is the best outfit any day. Very nice - beautiful
