Help with mark identification :)

Hi. I have these interesting earrings. I believe they are by an American designer that used old Chinese jade pieces. Could not find the mark online, hard to do since it's so similar to a copyright sign. Would anyone have an idea on who the maker is? http://www.upl.co/uploads/14503646211553781679.jpg...

Help identifying Old Mexican earrings

Hi fellows.
I got these nice modernist earrings, I assume from 60s-70s.
Can anybody help identify the maker? I've tried and tried, and can't decipher it.

Small tray questions

Hi.

Recently purchased a small tray in US.
Has a strange mark that I cannot find. It looks like a griffin, a winged creature of some sort.
Any help with identification will be greatly appreciated!

Re: Asian dragon bracelet

I understand that, as I mentioned initially it was tested with magnet AND acid.
I've done some silver work myself, so I know for a fact that it's silver, just not sure of the purity.

It (bracelet) is not magnetic. Silver acid test showed it to be silver. No sure what purity, but definitely silver.

Modernist bracelet mark

Hi dear forum! I'm stumped, searched the internet high and low and still cannot find this mark! It seems pretty defined and I thought would be easy to find, but no luck. It's a sterling silver cuff bracelet, freeform style. I'd say 1970s. Any suggestions? http://i64.tinypic.com/s3pjdz.jpg http://i68...

Re: Silver dish hallmark question

Thank you AG2012!
As I understand it's a replica of older silver or is it one of their own designs?
And do you think it's sterling or 800 silver?

Thank you for your help!

Unique modernist bracelet hallmark please help!

Hello fellows. So far this forum was amazing! Maybe somebody can help me solve this riddle :) The bracelet does not have a sterling mark, but I tested it w acid and magnet and it looks to be sterling. I made 3 views of the same hallmark to provide different views. http://i64.tinypic.com/2nc28nn.jpg ...
