Nicky Butler and Simon Wilson started selling antique jewellery from their stand in the Antiquarius market on the Kings Road in 1968. They were so successful that they opened their first shop on the Fulham road in 1972 and as they demand rose they started designing pieces of their own first in the Art Deco style but then inspired by other movements. These earrings are quite whimsical - Butler and Wilson loved creating fun and unusual pieces.
