Registering our jewelry marks?


#1

I am 77 years old female and a long time student at our local
community collage…Jewelry class…with others that have been going
for years…

we love your Orchid and find answers to problems we have. I have
never ask a question, but the day may come…I guess I do have one !!

Most of us have a stamp to mark our jewelry. I was wondering if there
is a place that the marks could be registered so in the future people
might know who make the piece??? Kind of nice knowing that maybe
some day in the future someone might like to know who made a certain
piece…Just a thought.

Thanks, Barbara Sines…student of many years & Love my workshop

Yes, there is such a registry. Is it SNAG? or MJSA? I can’t remember,
hopefully someone will respond, but I just wanted to let you know
that there is such a thing. We’ll find it for you.

i believe this is the Jeweler’s Board of Trade.

I think there is one small but vital question to be asked first. I
know what the likily answer is but it’s not a given.

In which country do you wish to register your stamp?

The Jeweler’s Board of Trade is a credit rating organization. They
don’t have anything to do with registering your stamps.

it can also be registered on either a state gov or federal gov level
as a ‘trademark/makers mark’…a lot cheaper on the State rather
than federal level(around $35 as opposed to $300 depending on your
state)…registering w/ the government gives you added protection
against anyone else using your exact or similar mark. beyond that, If
there is a specific jewelry mark registry, check to see if it
provides you any protection against someone else using your symbol.
The only catch I found so far, was that for the State (in my case,
NC) to register your mark, you have to show it in use before they
will grant you the trademark for it…so you are taking a chance
making a stamp before you get it registered that someone else may
use it already.
