Sphinx jewellery Ltd was created in 1947 by S Root of Chiswick in London in 1947.  The factory produced quality costume jewellery.  Collections ranged from fabulous "renaissance revival" pieces to simple pretty brooches. The Sphinx company also produced jewellery for other designers including Kenneth Jay Lane and Butler & Wilson. Sphinx jewellery enjoyed a boom in the 1950's. Sphinx ceased manufacturing jewellery under that trademark in 2000 but continue to make jewellery for other companies.
