Accessories Report | 40 years of Butler & Wilson

What do you think when you think of Butler and Wilson? Intricately designed jewelery, sublime headpieces and gorgeous cuffs. My first taste of their delicious pieces was when I spotted a delicate little jewel encrusted comb on my mom's dresser. It was instant love for a 4 year old. Who, you ask, wears B&W's signature luxe, well-cut costume jewlery? Well, Kate Moss, Sharon Stone and Princess Diana to name a few.

It's now been 40 years since Simon Wilson created his first ever lavish piece of costime jewelery. They've provided jewelery for fabulous shows such as: Strictly Come Dancing, Britain's Next Top Model and the X-factor, and celebrities such as Girls Aloud, Madonna and Kylie Minogue.
Butler and Wilson's 4oth anniversary book has over 200 pages their most iconic pieces ever made. It's priced at a modest £48 (£10 goes to Breast Cancer Research). So what the heck, it's a good cause, it's fabulous..what are you waiting for? For thos coffee table book addicts, there's a breathtaking special edition with gems, jewels and tightly colored stones packed on the front. Pay £500 and you can have it sitting prettily in your living room.
