How early can a 585 mark be?


Hi! I'm attaching an image of a ring that looks early 19th century -- rose cuts set in silver, gold band -- but its mark is 585. How early can it be. When did they start using this mark? Would you assume that it's European?


many thanks! Laura

585 Mark on Jewelry

by Jeannette Gutkowski
(cincinnati, OH)

I have a bracelet and bar pin that is stamped 585 and has been in the family for a long time. My grandparents were immigrants from Eastern Europe. The gold in the pieces has a reddish look instead of a pure goldish color. I have been wondering about the history and value of these pieces.

Thank you so much.

14k LIT

by Sherry
(TX)

I have an antique diamond ring that looks as though it might be white gold or platinum. However, the markings on the inside of the band says "14k LIT" I have tried to find out what this is, but the local jewelry appraisal here, specializing in antique jewelry, said he was not familiar with the marking, but that the diamonds were very good ones. He was unable to do an appraisal at that time, but I never took it back. Are you familiar with the marking?

Asch Grossbardt? Onyx and MOP Inlay Ring Marked KW or KN and 585

by Diane
(Homosassa, FL USA)

We have a ring that looks like Asch Grossbardt that is inlaid onyx and mother of pearl, ground to a smooth finish like AG does, but it is marked either KW or KN and 585 for 14K gold. I can't get a photo because the mark is inside the ring. I found the designer on google once and now I can't find it. Can you help? Thanks.

Hallmarks on 14 KT - 7 Piece Vanity Set

by Margie
(United States)

I have a 7 piece set of vanity items- 1 large crystal &
gold lidded jar, 2 small crystal & gold lidded jars, a brush, mirror, file, &
shoehorn. I purchased them from our small town's museum about 10-15 years ago.

They each have a hallmark stamped into the gold parts, next to the hallmark it has 14kt. I'm assuming the 4 digit number after that are the item's order/ replacement part number. (since only the two small jars have the same number) then a tiny x. The museum could not give me any information other than it was owned by Mrs. H. H. Hamilton, St. Paul (which is clearly engraved on the underside & side of several pieces).

I've been able to find several listings for silver vanity sets but none for gold vanity sets. I'd like to know what year they were made & by what company, it would be great to know how much to start the sale price at too. Thanks.

Pair 14K gold wedding rings, German origin

Hi guys,

I have wedding ring set that belonged to some family parents. The rings are 14K gold and are believed to be from German Art Deco period. the marks on both rings are as follows:

the letter V in a circle
the number 585 (which I believe to represent 14K gold)
A heart symbol with an arrow going through it and in the centre of the heart I think is an 'N' or a 'Z' on its side

I would like to know anything you can tell me about these rings please, sorry but the hallmark is too small for my camera macro.

Good luck hallmark guru!

14k "K"

by Ginny
(New Port Richey, Fl USA)


I have a 14k gold, enamel, and pearl grapes brooch. It is hallmarked with just the letter "K" I thought it might be Krementz but everything I have read Krements used an unusual hallmark, not the letter "K" and also their name. It looks similar to a lot of their pieces but I was wondering if anyone knew this hallmark.
Thanks!! Oh and there is also a "K" above the 14 so I don't think it is the "K" for the 14k
