Vintage 1970s Kenneth Jay Lane Faux Jade and Crystal Earrings
Love the way these earrings move! They were made by Kenneth Jay Lane in the 1960s. They feature faux jade square pieces at the top and each have six strands of crystals hanging down. They are clip earrings and measure 2 3/4" long x 3/4" wide.
