Since 1969, Butler & Wilson has been making its mark in jewelry and fashion history with their unique statement pieces and trend-setting iconic designs. In the beginning, they devoted themselves to buying and selling antique jewelry before expanding to the world of fashion jewelry, creating their own original designs in 1972. Their designs evoked beauty alongside wit and Jazz Age vivacity, a unique blend that fueled their popularity throughout the 70s, 80s, and 90s. Their most famous fan was Princess Diana, who famously sported the iconic lizard brooch on her jacket lapel.
