The markings on jewellery should be... a makers mark, a letter (referring to a year of assay) and a number (375 - 37.5% gold = 9ct 585 - 58.5% gold = 14ct 625 - 62.5% gold = 15ct 750 - 75.0% gold = 18ct 916 - 91.6% gold = 22ct) Plat will either be 900 (90% european/Far East) or 950 (95%) Silver is also 900 (European) or 925 (Sterling)
