Sphinx jewellery is a vintage British UK jewellery brand, which was started in the late 1940′s by S Root and was based in Chiswick, London. The company produced quality collectable vintage jewellery until the late 90's including statement costume jewellery pieces covering a wide range of styles. Sphinx jewellery can be identified by having the 'Sphinx' stamped in an oval cartouche, which was often accompanied by a design code stamp of a letter and numbers. Unsigned pieces were either for customers who wanted to sell pieces as their own, because work was produced in a rush to meet demand or because there wasn't space on the design. Pieces may have either numbers only or a letter and numbers. These were design numbers.

In addition to their own line, they produced jewellery designs for many creatively talented artists like Kenneth Jay Lane, Butler & Wilson, Joe Mazer (Jomaz), Alfred Philippi, Nina Ricci, Caura, Fried Paris, as well as Saks 5th Avenue, Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdales, Mark & Spencer and other high end department stores in Europe as well as the United States.

By purchasing this piece you will investing in a brand new chapter of its story as well as making a positively conscious choice on sustainable fashion. Vintage jewellery for the beautiful you on our beautiful planet.
