Diamond Necklace
by: Tracy J.

I have a diamond necklace that has been handed down in the family. I'm trying to find out what the engraving on the setting means. It is 14K RR. Can anyone help? Thanks in advance!

Rolled Gold & Gold Filled Jewelry
by: Anonymous

Marilyn it's possible that "R" indicates Rolled-Gold. There are in fact lots of different marks on rolled gold articles, some a really confusing.

With Rolled-Gold articles, the thickness of rolled gold can vary, so its usually measured in Microns if the layer of gold is uniform, otherwise in Milliemes. It can be so well done that it's virtually indistinguishable from solid gold. There is a test you can do yourself with an acid testing kit to determine if the metal is Gold or Rolled-Gold.

Find details on how to acid test if the article is indeed gold or rolled gold here.

Rolled gold is just an earlier term for "Gold-filled".

Is it possible the R stands for rolled gold since it is not the maker's mark? It is not marked RG just R.

Possibly Rolled Gold.
by: Anonymous

Hi Marilyn I just had a quick look and couldn't find maker's mark - 14K R

K 14 R yes, manufacturing jewelers, Newark, NJ, USA - ca 1894 - 1914

is the bracelet 14k solid gold or 14k ROLLED Gold?
