STUDIO ŠPERK, J.Drahoňovský - Czech manufacturer of traditional garnet jewelry and own designer jewelry with natural gems and diamonds
Since 1989, he has been producing jewelry with exclusively real natural gems in their family workshop in Turnov. The cornerstone of their production of rings, earrings, necklaces, pendants, bracelets and brooches is garnet jewelry not only in its classic form, but also in a modern design.
With the gradual development of the company, the production was expanded to include a collection of designer and luxury jewelry, in which the beauty of other natural stones stands out, such as diamond, moldavite, aquamarine, amethyst, citrine, ruby, sapphire, emerald and others.
Apart from the current Czech hallmarks (see picture above), all hallmarks that were valid in the history of Czechoslovakia and did not express a lower purity than the lowest purity for individual precious metals specified in the Hallmarking Act (§3, paragraph 2) are valid. Thus, the marks of the Austro-Hungarian, Czechoslovak, Protectorate and Slovak State marks. An example is the hallmark called the Čejka, used until 1993 for the 585/1000 purity. However, the hallmarks that were introduced during World War II on Czechoslovak territory occupied by foreign states (Austrian, Polish and Hungarian marks) are not valid. Other valid historical marks are published in the brochure ing. Bouša "List of hallmarks valid on the territory of the Czech Republic", first published in 2008, reissued in 2018. It is available at each PU office and in electronic form.
