Pure opulence are two words that I would use to describe the pieces featured. Lush and ultra-chic are also words that are synonymous with the names Roberto Cavalli and Kenneth J. Lane. Roberto Cavalli, known for both his embellished clothing and fabulous accessories, knows exactly how to make women swoon with his big and bold renditions. Just the name Kenneth J. Lane, evokes visions of fanciful, sparkling, eye-catching statements. I personally wish that he would go back into his "archives" and revive some of those huge, rhinestone accented, bib necklaces that he created during the sixties and seventies. The first picture is of a necklace that I owned back in 2007 and sold on EBay to a lady in Italy. Now that I look at it again, I almost wish that I'd kept it! It had a matching bracelet, but I could never get my hands on it. This particular piece was actually from a collection of his from the eighties....I purchased it, in perfect condition, from a thrift store for about $8. Vintage pieces were still pretty plentiful in the thrift stores, in my area in 2007 and I was sure that I would run across the same or a similar necklace. Well, so far that hasn't happened....maybe one day. Until then, I'll enjoy "today's" fabulous pieces!
