    Hello everyone!
    Do any of you know who manufactured these earrings? Looks like a GM in a circle, and the earrings are clip-on, with clusters of teardrop and round crystals. I checked the internet and my jewelry book but no luck :(

    Would appreciate any help on this -
    Thanks!

    Sorry -

    No idea. I will look in "Dolan" but didn't find anything on RCJ. What's the clip look like - maybe they are European.

    Lisa,

    Very pretty earrings. I looked through Dolan, American Costume Jewelers (aka Rainwater) - both books have lots of marks and two websites under "M" and "G" and no luck. The clip doesn't help - it is used or was used by lots of manufacturers.

    Sorry!

    Linn is the expert here and can probably respond to my thought here...wasn't there a costume jewelry manufactuer with the very generic name "General Manufacturing?" Have no clue what their mark looked like or really any other info but thought I would throw it out there for possible research.

    The mark for General Manufacturing is here:

    It's not the mark. Because of the placement of the mark, it's possible that it is for the clip and not the earrings - but that is a guess. Sorry, I have no idea who made the earrings, but they are very pretty!

  7. Hi Lisa,
    I cannot see the picture or your earrings, but it is possible that I found the same mark on a pair of vintage clip earrings.
    Do you have any news about it?
