A design mark is a brand or a person's own mark added to emphasize the uniqueness of a precious metal object. A design mark may be a combination of letters, a pattern, or a signature. For example, objects originally devised by designer and academic Tapio Wirkkala (1915-1985) would be marked with his initials TW at the end of the mark series.

Companies that use their own letter and number marks.
