About Us

Designers join forces….

Jardin Jewelry, of New York, and famed jewelry designer, Kenneth Jay Lane, joined forces in 2009 to create a new signature collection “CZ by Kenneth Jay Lane”.  Kenneth Jay Lane had made a name for himself custom designing and outfitting celebrities and socialites with his elegant fashion jewelry for decades.  The “CZ by Kenneth Jay Lane” licensing collaboration is already selling in hundreds of high end retail stores.  Rouge Jardin, LLC is an established entity in the fashion jewelry business.  Combined, they have over 60 years of experience.

The essence of this signature CZ collection…                                          

While Kenneth Jay Lane’s branded jewelry has long sparkled with crystal, pearls and colorful enamels, this is Lane’s first foray into the Cubic Zirconia (CZ) sector. The essence of this CZ collection is to infuse designer details into classic styling that can be described as CZ jewelry with uniqueness, quality manufacturing, trendy design elements and timeless beauty. 

CZ jewelry has been a staple in every woman’s accessory wardrobe for many years.   Technically speaking, CZ possesses comparable hardness and refractive index properties to precious gemstones like diamond, sapphire, ruby and emerald.   The CZ used in this collection is meticulously hand cut and hand set by jewelry experts who use the same techniques for precious stones.   “CZ by Kenneth Jay Lane” aspires to be known as the source for new, creative styling in CZ. 

The “CZ by Kenneth Jay Lane” jewelry collection represents affordable luxury. 

The design team, under the guidance of Kenneth Jay Lane's asthetic, creates the jewelry styles by looking beyond the traditional designs and processes.  Our designers are inspired by fashion trends which enable us to bring authentic jewelry pieces with rich, artistry details to our discerning customers year after year.

CZ by Kenneth Jay Lane takes a woman’s lifestyle into consideration.  We design for all of the events of your life;  CZ basics for everyday, special occasion and bridal.  

Fascinating properties of CZ:

CZ has a refractive index fractionally lower than a diamond – meaning that light coupled with faceting will create astonishing “sparkle”.  CZ does not have internal flaws; it sparkles with perfection and is nearly indestructible.


Our jewelry is molded and manufactured from brass (not base metal).  The settings are then rhodium plated.  Most of our settings are Luxe 4-Prong.  We also use bezel settings.  Our rhodium plate is polished to perfection and prevents the jewelry piece from tarnishing.
