The "Provenance" of the Jewelry Designer
by: Yvonne

Hi Sherri

a makers mark indicates that it is higher quality than average only because the jewelry manufacturer has gone to the trouble really - it's not definitive, for example, if the maker mark is a well-known mark such as famous jeweller CARTIER then Yes we know the mark will increase the value of the jewelry so it is in this sense that not only does provenance of the owner reflect value but so does the provenance of the actual jeweler.

Jackie Kennedy's faux pearls sold for over 100,000 due to the provenance of the owner. While Faux materials used in the construction of Miriam Haskell costume jewelry designer will not detract from the value on account of the faux materials simply because of the famous designer's name that appears and validates the piece - Miriam Haskell.

I hope this helps to clarify why designer marks impact or don't have so much of an impact on the overall value of a piece of jewelry. There are lots of movie actors but not so many Hollywood movie stars.

The reputable jeweler you have mentioned should be able to provide some clues into the maker, and will at least know how to have the stones tested. Having said that, jewelry lovers and investors are beginning to realize that they can successfully test many gemstones at home thanks to the advances in affordable and accurate gem identification testing kits and tools that a gemologist might not like to talk too much about ;-) Do get back to us with any follow-up information. If you are still stumped after all this, and after having the stone identified you can send through photos of the piece and the marks and I will investigate the history of this ring further.

Warmly,

Yvonne

JG stamp /thank you
by: Sherri

Thank you Yvonne, for the website. I looked it over thoroughly. There are a number of jewelry sites that contain the initials"JG". So far, none of them seem right in comparison to my ring. There's no exact match anyway. I'm going to keep searching. My jeweler here in Georgia is definitely the next stop. She's very knowledgeable and I've done business with her for years. Surely she'll have an idea.

JG stamp - value?
by: Anonymous

Thanks for the responses to my question regarding the "JG" stamp. Looking further into it, I have to agree! Now,I am wondering what if any value there might be to the ring? Does the stamp itself indicate that it is a high quality piece?

JG Ring with large cut stone
by: Yvonne

Good morning Sherri

I agree with you, being informed that your ring is "very valuable" based on these two letters alone is misleading information. There is JG JLRY trademark which is not the same as the two letters - JG. Understanding the marks on your jewelry would take an expert researcher still considerable time to research and therefore I suggest getting an appraisal carried out by a reputable company. A good appraiser would attempt to decipher these marks before according a value. Photos would be necessary in all cases. The question of the marks is a big missing piece in the valuation process but so is something else that was not mentioned; the name of the large emerald-cut stone on the top. They all provide important information which would help to steer the appraiser in the right direction. The design would also provide photographic clues for the appraiser.


Warmly,
Yvonne

JG stamp
by: Sherri

Although when searching there seems to be a lot of information about the stamp, JG,
I am yet to get a solid idea as to what the stamp really means.I have a silver band with small diamond accents embedded on the sides, with a large emerald cut stone on top. On the inside of the band there's a stamp with letters JG. Can anyone please tell me what it means? One site actually said that it meant, and I quote,"the ring is very valuable." That's all it said. No details at all. So, I don't really trust that information! Thanks for your help!

Sponsor's Mark
by: Anonymous

Hi there. JG is what's known as the sponsor mark, and it's the initials of the firm or indiviual who submitted the piece for marking.
