modern 60's? pin

Postby zoe kimmey » Sun Feb 04, 2007 7:50 am

I think this is modernist American-- hope that I am in the right catagory. I need help identifying the maker on this pin. It says SS 18k, has the copyrighted symbol and then ????? sometimes it looks like a conjoined JA and other times it looks like a sideways number 5. HELP!!! Thanks in advance everyone. ... 0746_o.jpg ... 38e1_o.jpg

Sorry, don't know the mark, but I do read it as JA and I'm fairly sure JJ only made plated base metal jewelry. Your piece looks to be fairly recent, a 1990's production piece would be my guess. Hopefully, someone will know the mark.

As an added note to Tom's mention of "JJ" which is normally assigned to Jonette in costume pieces, I have come across a mention of "Jody Jewelree Company" associated with Lowell Sigmund of Santa Monica CA (1965-83?). There is no mention of the metals used, but Sigmund made brass novelty items sold at retailer shops. [Could not find a known mark, but one item of costume type wear was listed online having the name Jody scripted across the back bar. No precious metals there.]
