About the Designer

Sphinx jewellery is a collectible vintage British Jewellery brand started in the late 1940′s by S Root and based in Chiswick, London.

They were known for their well-made, statement costume jewellery pieces in various styles and designs. Their collections ranged from fabulous “Renaissance Revival” pieces to simple pretty brooches.

The company also produced jewellery for other designers including Kenneth Jay Lane, Butler, and Wilson, and high-end department stores like Bloomingdales, Saks 5th Ave, Neiman Marcus.

Sphinx jewellery can be identified by having the name Sphinx stamped in an oval cartouche often accompanied by a design code stamp of a letter and numbers. But some pieces are signed without the name Sphinx, only by a number or letter and number.

The Sphinx company closed its doors in the late 1990s.
