Litwin Diamond Cutters
by: Sandy

I just got a bunch of jewelry at an estate sale in Cincinnati. One piece is a beautiful diamond ring marked 14k LIT. It was in a Hershedes box, but I just came upon this page, looked on the bottom of my bag and there's a ring box with Litwin Diamond Cutters Cincinnati. Mystery solved!

Most likely this designation refers to an old jewelry store in Cincinnati. The were well known and high end. The name was Litwin Jewelry.

I had mine appraised and he said the same as the others. LIT is a designers mark, though he was not familiar with it. The ring is white gold - not platinum, with Very good quality diamonds.

14k LIT
by: Florida

I have inherited my grandmother's 13 diamonds 14k LIT ring. I know it is old (about 100 yrs.) and was purchased at a very high-end jewelry store in Ohio.
Discovering the meaning of LIT would be helpful.

LIT initials in the band
by: Victoria

I too have just been passed down an amazing ruby ring said to be from the 30's with the initials LIT after the 14k. I would love to take it to my small town local jeweler but I do not trust them. Hopefully someone will eventually have the answers I seek. Till then safe and sound it shall remain in my keepsakes box.

LIT mystery mark
by: Anonymous

Good Afternoon!
If it were a one-off handcrafted ring I would agree with the appraiser - who is stating the most obvious, in that - LIT being the initials of the jeweler. However as this is the third visitor with a white gold ring, set with good quality diamonds and then LIT - all capital letters, after gold standard mark, I'm not so sure, if it is a studio jeweler using an unregistered mark. It remains a mystery mark at this stage, I'm afraid.

Warm Regards,
Yvonne Hammouda-Eyre

I took mine to have it appraised last year and was told that it was white gold (I thought it was platinum). That Jeweler told me that most likely, it was the designers initials.

Trying to shed Light on 14 k LIT mark
by: Anonymous

Sometimes you get jewelry with clarifying letters after the metal composition marks, that are confused for a makers mark. For example, EG - electroplated; HGP - Hard Gold Plate;
There doesn't seem to be any info though suggesting LIT is a clarifying metal mark. Also I couldn't find a European maker with these initials, in my reference books. I'm thinking of the possibility of the letters 'LIT' being an identifying mark used at the time of manufacture for a high end store line?

Same mark
by: Anonymous

I have a platinum ring with the LIT mark. The dealer suggested it was from the 1920s. The style is Edwardian/Deco. I'd like to identify the maker and learn more about the ring's history.

Hi, Sherry!

I have a ring with the same mark and, like you, have run into trouble identifying it. Did you find the answer? Please let me know if you did.

Thank you!

Dinah
