Founded in 1948, Sphinx was a British Jewelry manufacturer well known for their well made, beautifully designed costume jewelry. In addition to their own jewelry they designed for other designers such as Kenneth Jay Lane and Butler & Wilson and their jewelry was sold in high end department stores.
This wonderful piece is a Scottish design with faux turquoise, striped agate and other cabochons intended to mimic the real. The piece is marked Sphinx and the number represents the design number. I bought this piece in England.
Size: 2.25 inches; Condition: Very Good; Circa: 1960
