These beautiful 1.25" double hoop earrings call out DYNASTY! They are perfect: glued - not set rhinestones in the tradition of Butler & Wilson.
Butler & Wilson is a British jewelry company established in the 1960's. Remember the big jeweled rhinestone lizard pins in the 80's? Most likely B&W made them or someone was influenced by them.
Davy suggested they might be Richard Kerr designs. I am so excited to get closer to their origin. I looked on ebay and yes, they look similar to other Richard Kerr 1980's items. These are not signed darn. And, really gorgeous deep hue rhinestones. My pictures are okay - think a few clicks darker and sparklier!
Thank you Davy - you have helped me in the past too! - Val
