cross pendent
cross pendent  
my son found a small cross in the washateria today an i am curious of when it was from it has a few designs on its front .on the side it says 14kg esemco.can you help me?

Answer
Der Andres, Esemco jewelry is seen often in auctions such as eBay of vintage items. I would suspect it is from the early part of the 1900's butg not bring an antique seller cannot say for sure. The photo is not quite clear enough to make out detail.

Please look here on eBay for a variety of Endemco items,most of which are gold. Serching for Ensemco gold cross may turn up one like your son found.

This is a nice find.  God Bless and Peace, Thomas.

Expertise

Have a question about jewelry repair or working with precious metal jewelry and gemstones? For many years up to December 31, 2010, I was a working professional bench jeweler, involved everyday with setting stones in mountings, designing and making jewelry, repairing and limited custom manufacture. If you work with jewelry as a hobby or as a profession, I might be able to help. I deal with the retail business, not mass production. Ask privately if you wish. See the box for that: It keeps your question between us. Please DO NOT ask MAKER'S MARKS, but metal quality marks are fine to ask. Please DO NOT ask diamond prices. See a gemologist for that.

Experience

I have extensive experience in design, service and making of jewelry. I deal mostly with precious metals and gemstones but work with many materials as needed and usable to create an artistic design. My experience also includes freelance photography and photographer of jewelry and similar items for a former employer and individuals. Design of custom items requires reading the desires of the client and being clear on what can be done within that framework...then fulfilling the transition of idea to reality. Effective communications is essential in a working designer/producer and customer relationship.

Education/Credentials
Education is English/Physics! Started in human resources, to advertising, to jewelry...wow, what a road. I have had formal training in jewelry work and many shared experiences with top grade jewelers. We just never know were we will go or be. Follow your best, your dreams, with some discretion! Don't let the work tear up your body along the way as it has mine.
