Trademark International Class: Class 14 (Jewelry)

All goods or services are categorized within International Classes (IC hereafter). Goods run from classes IC 1-34, while Services are in IC 35-45. Please see a complete chart here. Let's take a closer look at one of these trademark classes – class 14.

What is International Class 14 All About?


Each class has a short title heading that gives a snapshot of what that class is all about -- IC 14's short title is jewelry. Seems pretty straightforward, right? But, as with anything trademark, there's more to it than that. The USPTO has 288 accepted descriptions that fit into IC 14; check them out here. Any jewelry item you could possibly think of belongs in this class, such as earrings, bracelets, necklaces, rings, anklets and watches. Also included is jewelry for your pet.

What Else is in International Class 14?


Seems like with any of these trademark classes, there always seems to be the oddball item or two and IC 14 is no exception. Here are a few items living in IC 14 that while connected to jewelry are not necessarily jewelry itself:

• precious metals and stones, such as gold, silver, opals, agate, topaz, peridot, etc.
• clocks be they alarm, for the car or incorporating a radio
• collectible coins
• jewelry boxes, cases, organizers as well as jewelry making kits

What's New for International Class 14?


The classification guide is constantly being updated with new goods or services. As the marketplace changes, the trademark office must adapt. Here are some of the 2009 listings for international class 14, good plus date added to the guide:

• Threads of precious metal 25 Jun 09
• Commemorative medals 18 Jun 09
• Statues of precious metal 21 May 09
• Jewelry incorporating a computer storage device containing medical information for medical alert purposes 5 Mar 09
• Cuff links of precious metal 8 Jan 09

Beware of Official-y Correspondence

Once you get that trademark filed be aware that your information is of public record, which means, unfortunately, some will mine that resource & some of those folks will send you solicitations. 
These solicitations often look very official, and "may use names that resemble the USPTO name, including, for example, one or more of the terms "United States," “U.S.,” "Trademark," "Patent," "Registration," "Office," or "Agency."  
Some will even have documents that resemble actual government documents rather than what you'd expect a company to send and this is often done by "emphasizing official government data like the USPTO application serial number, the registration number, the International Class(es), filing dates, and other information that is publicly available from USPTO records."

"All official correspondence will be from the …
