Jew­elry de­signer Ken­neth Jay Lane dies at age 85

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - OBITUARIES -

Cos­tume jew­elry de­signer Ken­neth Jay Lane, whose creations caught the fancy of high so­ci­ety and the QVC crowd alike, has died in New York. He was 85.

The ex­ec­u­tive vice-pres­i­dent of Lane’s com­pany, Chris Shep­pard, says Lane died at his Man­hat­tan home early Thurs­day or late Wed­nes­day. The cause was not given.

The jet­set­ting de­signer counted many bold-faced names among his friends and cus­tomers: Jac­que­line Kennedy Onas­sis, Au­drey Hep­burn, El­iz­a­beth Taylor, Greta Garbo, Nancy Rea­gan and the princesses Mar­garet and Diana.
