Do you have a mark that you'd like to identify?

 

Do you think it might be Australian?

 

We offer a range of services to help you identify jewellery marks!

If you recognise your mark as one of the more common ones shown below, you can download an information sheet. The sheet contains information about the maker along with an indicator of the rarity of the mark.  It also includes example images too. We charge a small amount so we can keep this website running.  If you don't recognise your mark from the common ones below then contact us using the form below and we will try to provide further information.  

(Due to the volume of enquiries we get and the time it takes us to respond, we charge a small $5 contribution for our time helping to research and identify a mark.  We'll only charge if we can confidently identify the mark).

Check out our tips to identify your marks here where you'll find some info to get you started or check out our gallery for photos of Australian jewellery.  Also check out our FAQ's for other tricks and tips.

Remember that knowing more about the mark can ensure you appreciate the true value to your jewellery as well as revealing more about the history of it.
