    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

      Thanks Phil - these are pretty nice. I usually wear them w/the last 2 pins I posted on a black vintage 40's jacket. And these earrings just stand out - no need for more. Yes, they are 80's gaudy in the best way. I should have worn them to the Nolan Miller event...hee hee hee :)

      Thank you Nadia - no these rhinestones are glued in good and tight - a different type of jewel...

      Thank you friends for loving these: Phil, Kyra, Racer, Mike, Mani, Pat, Ken, Gudrun, Trey, Sean!
