NMPaul, this has been one, difficult nut to crack! Unfortunately, I have peered under just about every internet rock I can think of, with zero luck. Thus far, the only thing that has returned, lending any credence to the name is this, and it is sketchy, at best: http://www.artfact.com/auction-lot/pa...

Thank you for that response, Tom, it was kindly diplomatic, for I still venture to know a thing or two about this jewelry. And, speaking of Performed Parts, it would seem that they are behind-the-scenes producers for other labels. Any suggestions on where I might go next to research them? I, truly, ...

Thank you, Tom, for your kindness in helping. So, please forgive my ignorance, but, in a nutshell - commercial jewelry, commercial company? In that event, is it even a worthwhile quest to want to know of this Maker? If so, do you have any suggestions for researching Performed Parts further?

Tom...I feel like such a nincompoop!!! Based on your comment, I've just inverted my photo to reveal that, indeed, the symbol has not been stamped in the reverse of the dollar sign at all. A dollar sign might well be what it's meant to represent. weetziebat, I've posted a new "right side up"...

Pat, you're still my hero, I can't thank you enough! In doing some preliminary research, Krementz appears to have subsumed so many different companies after acquiring Schuler that it's going to be difficult to ferret out just which one may have inherited the trademark. Particularly now that it's bee...

Well, yay, weetziebat. I was beginning to worry that I was a "lone soldier" out here, the only one with any sort of jewelry with this hallmark. Indeed, it does have a copyright insignia adjacent to it, along with a .925, sterling stamp. I've been emailing jewelers and posting to boards all...

Help with Identification of Maker's Mark/Hallmark

Hello, I am wondering if someone here might be able to assist me in the identification of the hallmark/copyright insignia/maker's mark shown in the first, attached photo (please click to enlarge). As best I can describe it - it's a reversed dollar sign, with only a single hash mark through it, as op...
