    A brief History

    Founded in 1948, The Sphinx Company was a renowned British jewelry manufacturing company that produced well made, quality constructed, and beautifully designed costume jewelry that had the look of real jewelry. In addition to their own line, they produced jewelry 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 Ave., Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdales, Mark & Spencer and other high end department stores, in Europe as well as the United States.

    Mark: SPHINX in an oval cartouche with some having a LETTER AND NUMBER included or without the Sphinx name, having only a LETTER AND NUMBER in a cartouche. 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.

    The jewelry is now becoming highly collectible since Sphinx ceased operations in the late 1990's.
