It’s not often — if ever — that a storied jeweler celebrates those who knock it off. But on Wednesday afternoon, Verdura owner Ward Landrigan proudly displayed costume earrings, necklaces and brooches by Kenneth Jay Lane that were near replicas of the real thing. Lane’s pieces were identified in Verdura’s showroom cases by blue tags with cheeky phrases such as “Fabulous Phony” and “Deja Verdura.”

Annette de la Renta, Peter Bacanovic and Peggy Guinness were among those nibbling tea sandwiches, while Lane was busy working the room, suggesting Verdura copy some of his original designs worn by various guests. “Anytime you want to knock off one of my designs, I’d be delighted,” Lane said.
