What Does JJ Mean on Jewelry?
The JJ mark was introduced around 1970 by Jonette Jewelry Company, which began as Providence Jewelry Company. The company’s original name was Providence Jewelry Company, but it changed to Lisker & Lisker when Lisker’s brother joined the company.
In 1986, the company registered its name as Artifacts and began using Roman numerals MCMLXXXVI on Bulk Jewelry. The company also developed a line of southwestern and ethnic jewelry called Santa Fe. Eventually, the company ceased production in September 2006.
