Roy King (1913 - 2000) was a major figure in London's fashion movement in the 1960s and 1970s, and was a skilled bench jeweller as well as an accomplished jazz pianist. He strove to make 'jewellery that tells the time', and signed an exclusive contract with Bueche Girod. The bark finish on bracelets was pioneered by Roy King, and one of his bark finish wedding rings was purchased by George Harrison and Patti Boyd for their wedding in 1966. Other famous clients included Tom Jones, The Beatles, Saudi Princes and the British Royal Family.
