gold and silver marks . \nSterling silver rings are usually marked "sterling" or "925."\n. \nGold is usually marked with the karat, such as 10k, 14k, etc., but may also be marked 916 (22k), 750 (18k), 585 (14k), 417 (10k). European marks can also be 375 or 333, 9 8k respectively.
A gold ring will have the gold content inscribed inside. It mayalso have the manufacturer's mark inside. 5C would be themanufacturer's mark.
Markings on white gold are normally placed to indicate the level ofpurity of the gold. Different manufacturers use varied types ofmarkings on their products.
I have an old gold ring with markings CG&S - CROWN - 22 -ANCHOR - N I know the ring was made by Charles Green and it is 22 carat goldbut I am unsure of the rest. Can someone please help
It means it's 9 carat gold:. 9ct gold contains 37.5% pure gold (375 parts per thousand parts).. 14ct gold contains 58.5% pre gold (585 parts per thousand parts).. 18ct gold contains 75% pure gold (750 parts per thousand parts).
975 denotes the purity of the metal used. 975 parts per thousand. The rest, 25 parts per 1000 are alloys.
okay, i have had quite a bit of research for this for you (currently at 4.32am in the morning and needing much deprived sleep) but anyway, i found an answer from www.about.com which hopefully answers your question... "The karat marking on your gold jewelry should be accompanied by a hallmark or tr…ademark that identifies its maker. The item's country of origin might also be included." Perhaps if it is not the artist of the ring who produced the piece, then perhaps it is the country like England for example. unfortunately, my grandfather who is a watchmaker would know this grand question but is sleeping at this hour i imagine hope u have some luck cheers, d ( Full Answer )
The 375 is 9 karat and the L is likely the year 1943 (English standard) The jH 9 I am not sure,but it could mean the repeat of this.
14 k = how good the gold is - 10k not as pure - 24k Best there is. . K = karat. (for diamonds it's spelled carat) . GP = gold plated - Gold coating on outside of another metal - (like painting a bottle cap with gold) . hope that helps ya.
No. It may say '18k plated', but will never carry a hallmark or mark of fineness.

3 Digit numbers hallmarked on precious metal rings indicate the fineness or caratage (ct) of the metal. There is not a fineness value for 795, as it does not exist, to my knowledge, in the UK or US, and I'm pretty sure nowhere else in the world either. The Fineness marks in the UK are as follows:… 375 = 9ct 750 = 18ct 916 = 21ct 999 = 24ct or pure. The fineness in the US is as follows: 417 = 10ct 585 = 14ct 750 = 18ct 916 = 22ct 999 = 24ct or pure.

It could mean someone's first letter of there first and last name. Or maybe a school.
Persuade a jeweller to test it with a testing kit. or ask it if its gold
Are you sure the 8 is not a nine as this would refer to sterling silver (925 parts per thousand) & that the stones set into the ring are cubic zirconia's
If you look closer you'll see that the 5 is actually an S. The 925 stands for 92.5%, which is the Sterling silver standard. So a piece of jewelry with the marking S925 means that it's composed of 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper (usually it's copper).
The mark 14 Bk signifies how much gold carats are in the ring/the value the ring has.
I have found answer before but now forgotten it. It is definitely an old marking they used to use maybe for 18k gold.
I have only recently started an apprentiship in goldsmithing but i belive it refers to the percentage of gold withing the ring as in 18 karat or 24 karat but the number means it is 96.9 percent pure gold wichh is a high percentage. sterling is 92.5 percent so you have a sterling gold ring there my f…riend :) ( Full Answer )
It means that the item is gold and the purity of the gold is 14 parts out of 24 pure gold or about 58.5% pure gold
I've a gold chain necklace, quite heavy, it has markings on it 'FL- 18K' what does this mean? can anyone help. Many Thanks
.595 in a Gold ring is 14 Karat Gold (Can be White or Yellow Gold)
It stands for Carat or Karat. Which describes gold purity 24c is 100% pure gold 12c is 50% etc...
Hi,It can be IV or VI which means 18ct in Arabic.Thanks.Get back to me at firstname.lastname@example.org if u have any doubts.
if you mean .25 or 0.25, it would mean you have quarter carat of real diamonds in the jewellery piece
Not sure yet. I have an AA1 marked Christmas pin it is gold with a red bow. Very pretty.
If you mean this type of keeper ring: Signifies fertility. A design as old as the Romans, depicting stylised ears of wheat and round berries, ancient symbols of fertility. The design saw a revival during the late Victorian period where many 18ct gold examples were produced for men and women and t…hen again from the 1970's perhaps to date. ( Full Answer )
It is most likely a messed up .585 ( miss read or worn down) which is the metric - European equivalent to 14k
Yes, it is real. Depending on the weight of it it can be worth a little bit. I took a 10 caret gold ring to a pawn shop, not sure of the weight (forgot to ask them) but they told me that it was worth about $70
Its means it consist from 41.6% of gold and 58.4 of other metal. its called 10KT gold. for example 14KT GOLD is 585. (58.5 Gold and 41.5 other metal).
QJ could be the maker's mark - indicating who made the ring. All modern jewelry is supposed to have the metal content stamp (10K, 14K, 18k, 925, etc.), the maker's mark, and the country of origin.
It means that it was commissioned and sold by TGGC or The Genuine Gemstone Company.
Well, the mark of white gold depends how the jewelry industry makes it; can be W. G. 10k, W. G. 14k, W. G. 18k or 18k-14k-18k-22k this depends on how pure color white is inside and outside ; or like 18k is 750 out the U. S. A.. In the industry it depends of the formula quality, pure solid white gold… their use. For example, in yellow gold with Rhodium can be 18k G. RH. 14k G. RH. 10k G. RH. or regular mark 10k,14k,18k,22k.or can use only like W. 10k to 22k. My best opinion to the consumer, see web page Living Life Enterprises Presents. ( Full Answer )

If im correct it means that it is an 800 gold Karrot ring.im not 100% certain though. You should go to a jewler near your city/town and find out.
its probably just the product number or model number because one of my rings has random numbers on it as well
its is 24 carat gold or 100% pure gold ring. But is unlikely to be , no one make 24 carat gold ring
It usually reads 585 which is 14kt gold. They are allowed a little variance so you probably have 14kt gold at .599 (or a messed up .589 (more likely)) purity.
It is the value addition because of the wastage incurred in making of the gold jewellery
It means precisely that karat/percentage. In the case of 14 karat, 58.5% pure. I believe the statistic is, if it's not assayed to be "plumb", it can be as much as 2.1% under/over.

When a number is given followed by K it means the weight of the gold. Most have 10K, 12K, 14k and 18k. I have never seen 40k.
I was asking the same exact question. Hopefully someone will know and give a good answer. Very curious to know who is g.w.r. and if they are still around.

It is usually one or two letters before or after the gold sign. Sometimes it is not there at all and the only thing that is needed is how much gold the item has.
Yes some custom made rings do not have a mark ; Regular gold ring have a mark can be 10k - 14k - 18k - 22k , No ring can be 24k Yellow gold is to soft can break easy . White gold is better if you mix it with very good metal alloys;or with yellow gold to make pure color solid inside and outside white… gold alloy, 10k thru 21k; yellow gold with rhodium is not better to make white gold, because in one year it can loose the white color; all metal yellow gold or white gold from 10k thru 22k is called alloy of gold ; because it is made with different kinds of precious metals . Only 24k yellow gold People can call pure gold. you do not need yellow gold to create pure solid color white gold alloy formula, You can see the web. Living Life Enterprises Presents .
