by: Dotty

Hi, I have a very old pin shaped as flower with a pearl in the middle. The inside reads 1-20 12k GF AC. Do you know when this might have been made and if it has any value. thank you for your time.

12 Markings

I just bought a cameo at the Salvation Army. I thought it was junk, but liked the cameo. On the back of the gold-colored setting it is stamped 120 12K ALL.

12 ct standard
by: Anonymous

Hi thank you for writing in with the following question:

"I have a small gold cross that is marked 120-12k does that mean it is 12 carat gold? I was reading about British jewelry and something about 12 carat beginning around 1854 and discontinued in 1932. Can you please advise me about this piece of jewelry and how I can obtain it's value? "

12k like Ben says, is 50% gold. There are 24 parts. 1 karat gold is 1 part in 24 gold.

The Victorian standard of 15ct would be 15 with .625 and would be clearly visible. 12ct is rarely seen today. Now in 1931, getting into a period most of us should see, the standard 15ct and 12 ct were replaced with 14ct which remained until 1975. Therefore we can be sure that the gold cross was made some time at least before 1931.


best wishes,

50% Gold

12K, 12ct is 500 parts per 1000 or 50% gold. Rarely seen, usually used for old watch cases.
