NEW ARRIVALS: Kenneth Jay Lane

We just got back from a little visit to Kenneth Jay Lane's New York showroom. If there is jewellery heaven on Earth, this must be it. With over 30,000 pieces on display, our hearts were melting and our eyes were glistening with happiness. We are glad to report that Mr Kenneth Jay Lane works at the studio and takes time to chat with clients. We just adore him!

With decades of his work on display, and each piece lovelier than the other, we couldn't resist but to make a huge order. Yes, huge!

Kenneth Jay Lane is a jewellery legend and we firmly believe that every woman should own a little something by him. He was a favourite of the elegant Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, the glamorous Elizabeth Taylor, the stylish Vogue editor Diana Vreeland and the divine Audrey Hepburn. He made costume jewellery cool and his pieces are now considered by many as collectible as precious gems, with vintage pieces selling at Christie's and Sotheby's. Among his fans is our style muse Olivia Palermo.

Although we have many favourites, here are some of the new pieces available at Sophie's Closet. It's time to snag one (or two or three) up! Because in Kenneth Jay Lane's words "elegance, good taste and luxury never go out of style."

Ruby Lion Head Bracelet (AED 2,200)

Gold Pave Zebra Bracelet (AED 1,320)

Emerald Starburst Earrings (AED 340)

We love the "animal" bangles and glistening earrings. Old-school glamour, something that will carry from generation to generation.

Three Row Gold Coin Necklace (AED 790)

Six Row Gold Coin Bracelet (AED 360)

These antique-looking coins remind us of something women would have worn in the ancient times. Perfect for summer, could be worn casually or formally, and we could pair them with almost anything.

Turquoise Ruby Drop (AED 950)

Antique Coral Snake Bracelet (AED 1,110)

Nothing says summer like coral and turquoise. We are thinking of wearing these with something light and flow-y.

Jewellery heaven, right?
