Makers Marks

Makers marks (sometimes called hallmarks) are not compulsory in Australian jewellery – so I thought I would make a page as an archive of Australian jewellers makers marks.

Artist makers marks will be listed in alphabetic order by artist first name.

Would you like to contribute a picture of your makers mark, and perhaps even a story about it? If so, please email me: melbournejeweller [at] gmail.com with a picture (of close as possible to 250×250 pixels).

Please also refer to: GSGA listing

    I have two marks, the hand is my “everyday” mark and I try and use that on everything. The initials are a “proper” makers mark registered in Britain and can be used on pieces sent to the Goldsmiths Hall in London to be hallmarked.

    …my main ideas when I designed it were that it should have my initials incorporated some how as well as a circle shape. A lot of my work has circles in some form or another so I felt it was important my mark reflected that too!

    There is no story … but I worked on it for quite some time to come up with a design I was happy with.  My initials CG failed to provide any graphic strength so I went with CAZ.

    It’s a simplified symbol representing alchemy and the four elements that are all used in the production of jewellery. “
