Globally Inspired Costume Jewelry

From an imitation-ivory elephant pendant with a saddle of Swarovski crystals to a cabochon-studded snake pin suitable for a maharajah’s turban, Kenneth Jay Lane’s unabashedly opulent (yet wildly affordable) jewelry has long celebrated the fantasy and romance of far-flung locales. Since launching his line more than 45 years ago, no destination has been quite as influential to this dedicated globe-trotter as India—a country Lane has visited so many times he’s lost count. Drawing inspiration from its imagery and culture while also blurring the borders between high and low (Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis once asked him to replicate one of her necklaces using only rhinestones and gold-plated metal), his animal and paisley motifs add the perfect dose of glamour to a travel wardrobe.
