10% IRID PL. and Garland stamp
by: Anonymous

I wish someone could tell me why this ring looks like it has real diamonds but has no diamond mark anywhere. But has Garland and 10% IRID PL. I asked a jeweler and he said he had no idea. It is a beautiful ring tho. It looks antique.

Garland imprint ring
by: Alisha M

I just aquired a beautiful double ring with the 14kg Garland imprint inside. I felt the ring was old, now I feel like it more. It's white gold with a diamond set in the middle and two petals with tiny diamonds on both sides. So glad I have it. Found this website dedicated to jewelry with roar power and looking for possible information about it.

Is it Makred?
by: Yvonne

Hi Kim

thanks for writing in - lucky you - could you describe any markings you can see on the watch face and or the band. If it is gold then it should be marked - examine evrywhere very closely. It could be on the closure.

Kind Regards Yvonne

Garland still owned by Ball in 1965
by: Anonymous

I just happened to hit upon an advertisement for Garland in the Sept.15, 1965 issue of Vogue... At the bottom of the ad it states "The Ball Company/celebrating our 100th year/Chicago, Los Angeles."

When I googled "Ball Company Garland Jewelry" just now, I came across your short history here, which has been very useful... but I figured I should point out that it appears Ball Company still ran Garland in 1965... and that perhaps it was not discontinued in 1960 after all.

Opal 14k gold ring with "GARLAND" stamp
by: Christy

I also have a ring that I inherited from my great-aunt that is stamped "GARLAND" and "14k" inside the band. It is white gold with 3 matching opals and 4 very small stones that could be diamonds. I'm having trouble finding information about the stamp online, other than that it was a trademark for Ball Co. out of Chicago.

This is the only info I've found;

"The "GARLAND" hallmark was the trademark used by The Ball Co. of Chicago, Illinois on their fine jewelry. Originally supplying some of the finest watches made in the USA by watchmaker Webb C. Ball, who was the first jeweler to use time signals and became famed for designing the "perfect railroad watch", in 1913, Ball purchased the long-established Norris-Alister Company, a wholesale jewelry supplier. In 1924, the company began carrying their 'Garland' line, aptly named after The Garland Building in Chicago where the company was housed, while continuing to offer very collectible railroad timepieces. The company discontinued their Garland jewelry in 1960 and the watch-side of the company is now operated out of Switzerland. Due to The Ball Company's reputation for fine timepieces, their jewelry too was/is very fine and collectible..."

I also inherited two other opal rings, but only noticed the stamp on this one because I am wearing it today. :o) I'm going to check the other two when I get home.

My great-aunt was also of meager means, so it makes me wonder what she actually had.

Garland Maker's Mark
by: Anonymous

Hi Stephanie thanks for writing in with the following question:

"I have a solitaire ring from my grandmother who recently passed away. They were not wealthy people, and she never wore it, so I am assuming it is a cubic zirconia, but it is huge, like 1.5 carats. The inside of the band is marked 14k and Garland. Is that a particular maker's mark, and if so who's. I would really like to know :)."

So sorry to hear of the passing of your grandmother. Stephanie I would definitely get this one checked out and the stone tested. The name "Garland" was a trading name used by Ball Co (Diamonds & Watches)

best wishes,
Yvonne Hammouda
