arrow in mark
by: Anonymous

The arrow intriques me. I have a beautiful sterling costume piece from the 40's most likely, which has two letters pierced by an arrow. THe piece came out of my grandfathers high end jewelry store. My grandfather was the first diamond wholesaler in a particular large metro area so it is not likely that he would have carried sterling or low quality costume jewery.

Another indication that it is a higher end piece is that it has prong set deep blue saphires and a very clear stone (not discolored like aged rhinestones would be). It is therefore conceivable that the mfg made gold as well as sterling pieces, which would increase the likeliehood that my grandfather might have picked a few items up when the mfg's salesman came through.

I do think that it is difficult to read the letters. Is there a possibility that the letters could be something else? I cant imagine two companies using a pierced arrow motiffe. The letters might however vary I suppose if they indicate an individual designer or line (silver vs gold).

SO you see, I am just beginning my search and hope that this additional information will get us both closer to the asnwer.

Last, to better date the piece the age that your grandmother would be today would be helpful. My grandfather and your grandmother may be from different eras. Mine would be 150 today (2011).
