I and J jewellery marks

I and J Jewellery Marks


Signed jewellery identification continuing alphabetically. This is our I to J designer section. All the photos are our own. Taken from the jewellery we have owned. This unique page contains both old and modern jewellery information on companies still trading and those that are not.  

A- B | C - D | E - F | G - H | K - L | M - N | O - P | Q, R - S | T, U - V | X, Y - Z 

Icing - see Claire's Stores Inc. N American store line for room decorations, cosmetics, jewellery and accessories.

IFS - relatively unknown but seem to sell pewter tie tack pins and kitchenware in pewter. Probably Italian or European in origin.

Iris - unsigned faux pearl jewellery. Paper tag in green and gold attached with Iris and a seahorse motif. From Majorca. Little information is available.

J C - Unknown mark on very good quality earrings. 

Jewel Crest - an Australian company that sells high-quality jewellery encrusted with Swarovski crystals.

Jewelcraft was the name used by Coro (US) in the UK for their Jewelcraft jewellery. The company were not allowed to use the name Coro because of the UK company Ciro. So the majority of sales were under the name Jewelcraft here in the UK. The dating is unclear but the name was used in the fifties through to the 1970s when the company stopped trading. 

Jewelcraft signatures are often in a script, and look out for their distinctive pear-shaped tag with concentric circles that seems to be used by only them. Signatures can be rubbed and difficult to find sometimes.

About Me

I preserve the past. Researching family and local history. Finding about mine and other people's ancestors, is just one of my passions. I also love vintage costume jewellery made here in the UK. I write about my finds and like to research.
