From Wikipedia: Butler & Wilson started in 1969 at Chelsea’s Antiquarius Market. In 1972, the company moved to its flagship store on Fulham Road in London, then opened a further retail outlet on South Molton Street, London.
At the end of the 1970s, Simon Wilson designed the Christmas Lights for Regent Street, and in the 1980s, they worked alongside Pirelli calendars and Giorgio Armani, whilst establishing a retail presence in Harrods and on Sunset Boulevard, Los Angeles.
In 1993, when Buckingham Palace first opened to the public, the company was invited to design a range of jewellery that took inspiration from the palace’s interior.
QVC started selling Butler & Wilson’s jewellery in 1995. The companies celebrated this twenty-five-year partnership in 2020.
The company’s jewellery has been worn by several notable celebrities over the years. Princess Diana was a frequent shopper at the Fulham Road store, and wore a pair of Butler & Wilson’s crescent-moon-shaped earrings during a meeting with the Sultan of Oman. Other famous people that have worn the brand’s jewellery in the past include Jerry Hall, Iman, Catherine Deneuve, Faye Dunaway and Elle Macpherson. More recently, Rihanna, Madonna and Rita Ora have worn Butler & Wilson jewellery, as has the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton.
