Jewelery marked with the SFJ mark is quite rare. Basically, these are elegant plot brooches dedicated to any holiday – Christmas, Halloween and Valentine’s Day and others. A characteristic feature of all SFJ jewelry is the use of golden jewelry alloy and enamel of juicy shades as the basis. Experts date the jewelry to the 70s of the twentieth century.
What kind of company marked their jewelry with the SFJ mark is not known for certain.
There are three versions of the origin of the stigma.
Some connoisseurs of vintage jewelry claim that the stamp belongs to the American company Stephen’s Fine Jewelry.
However, other sources are inclined to believe that the SFJ marking was used to mark the jewelry of R Steinmetz & Sons, registered in Mumbai.
According to another bold hypothesis, SF is the initials of a woman jeweler who, when she got married, added the letter J to her husband’s surname to the abbreviation.
Today, SFJ jewelry is rare and sought after by antique and vintage jewelry collectors, who value it for its original design and impeccable workmanship, which usually keeps the jewelry in excellent condition. We can make a bold prediction that in the near future SFJ jewelry will increase in price and become a real collector’s rarity.
