November 2008 Holiday and Birthday Gifts

Holiday and Birthday Gifts are always a challenge. Charms replicating your badge make a thoughtful and warmly received gift. Many of these charms are available in solid 14K gold or sterling silver. We have also been asked to enhance them with nice size diamonds or other brilliant stones. Personalized engraving on the back of the charms make them a gift that will be remembered and treasured for years to come! Please check out our jewelry pages!



April 23, 2007 California Law Enforcement Historical Society

The Ed Jones Company is proud to announce our partnership with the California Law Enforcement Historical Society with the release of the second badge in our Heritage Collection series. It has been made possible to reproduce with the permission of the Director of the California Alcoholic Beverage Control. The Liquor Control Officer badge was originally struck by Ed Jones in 1955 of Sterling Silver with a 10K Gold Filled California center seal. The badge is a 7 ball-tipped star with hand-engraving. No pictures of the officers wearing the star were available because they were all undercover during that time. If you are interested in this badge please contact the California Law Enforcement Historical Society at



April 2007 Heritage Badge Collection

Celebrating our 110th Anniversary we are introducing our Heritage badge collection. The first in our series is the "Silver Shadowed" which is the official logo of the Ed Jones Company. It has been used as the logo for the turn-of-the-century catalogs, gold leaf entery door, and on our website. The "Silver Shadowed" is made of sterling silver and has been replicated beautifully to match the artistry that would have made Ed Jones proud. This badge is antiqued and hand-engraved by master engravers and is a unique piece of history today!
