VINTAGE 1980s AVON Lion’s Head Doorknocker Multi Strand Pearl Necklace by Kenneth Jay Lane

KJL Simulated Pearl Necklace 9This incredibly gorgeous necklace is designed by Kenneth Jay Lane for AVON…the ‘jeweler to the world’s most admired women’ for the AVON Society and these iconic pieces are a lustrous gold tone with rhinestone eyes. It features beautiful simulated pearls, in perfect condition, attached with a highly detailed lion’s head pendant, also in mint, vintage condition. The doorknocker is a statement implying ‘do not trespass,’ knock before entering or face the wrath of the lions! Famous designers, including CHANEL, are embracing this concept, and symbol, as seen in their newly released lion’s head jewelry collections. These are pieces representing the strength and courage of the lion…a conversational, bold and confident statement in these times!
