J153577 - KJL Lovely Ladybug Brooch
This pin is HUGE!
I thought that it was adorable but it is HUGE! I sent it back because it just wasn't right for me but if you are looking for a very large pin/brooch then you might like it.
Love, love, love!
This is a beautiful brooch. The picture does not do it justice.
I received this as a gift. Ladybug? I don't think so. It looks more like a FLY. Kenneth Jay Lane has much prettier pins. I don't care for this one AT ALL.
Needs Some Re-Designing
When I received this pin, I went to pin it on and the pin mechanism broke right off in my hand. In my opinion the findings on this pin are not heavy or sturdy enough to support the weight of this pin. The glass "orb" in the center of the ladybug is HUGE - it's more like a big egg. I think that only a heavy wool coat or jacket could support this pin. I would not be able to wear this on a cotton or silk blouse. Overall the pin is very large; normally that is not a problem for me as I like the look of a big bold pin. However, in this case with everything being "super-sized" - the "diamond" stones - the glass orb - the jeweled eyes - it makes the piece look a little cheap. I do like the design, but besides having to return this because it broke, it just will not work for me. I am very surprised by this - I am a big fan of KJL - but this one needs to go back to the drawing board.
This is my third KJL pin that looks art deco and is exquisite. I have J151970 Itsy Bitsy Spider (gorgeous!!), as well as the dragonfly that looked like platinum and diamonds and which I am crazy over. Both, as well as this piece, are beyond gorgeous. Kenneth, this pin did not disappoint. The body in the photo looks like it is a solid stone, but in reality it is a beautiful clear, transparent stone. I love the look of art deco, vintage and these pins looks like I spent thousands of dollars and found them in some very high end antique store or something that was handed down through the generations. I love them and treasure them and look forward to more pins with this vintage/art deco look. Between these are your pearls, which I have been collecting for years, I am one happy lady!!
