William de Lillo (deceased 2011) was born in Belgium and came to the United States in the 1950's. After working for Cartier and Harry Winston, he started The House of de Lillo with Robert F. Clark, the head designer for Miriam Haskell Jewels.
De Lillo jewelry was incredibly detailed and mostly created exclusively for wealthy private clients including the Duchess of Windsor and Elizabeth Taylor. While living in France in the 1970's, the designers also produced jewelry for Nina Ricci, Schiaparelli, Yves Saint Laurent, Norman Norell & Chanel.
