585 = Russian
by: Jennifer

you probably have yourself an antique piece. More likely than not, its from Russia, and probably quite valuable.

-Russians preferred reddish gold color jewelry, instead of yellow gold color jewelry....now that doesn't necessarily mean that they didnt use yellow gold- its just that the reddish hue was most popular back then.

585 was a russian gold standard .. 585=14k

in other words the ring is approximately .5833% gold

hope that helps!

Jewelry Valuations

Hi Enna

the mark is a common gold standard. 585 is another way of saying 14 Karat.

The mark 585 is used more over in Europe. 14K is used more in the US. Yes, the bracelet is of value. Apart from the sentimental store of value, there is also the art, the craftsmanship; we can't comment on this as we cannot see it but it sounds very interesting from your description.

There is a link to check TODAYS GOLD PRICE in the Jewelry Resources.

You might like to have the item valued. We provide an independent on-line appraisal service. Each valuation is carried out by experts in their respective fields.

Here is the link with info on the jewelry valuation service.

585
by: Anonymous

585 stands indeed for 14 karats gold. 585 means exactly 58.5% gold. the reddish colour is probably due to the other materials which has been used to manufacture the object (often copper for rose/red gold). gold comes in a variety of colours, of which the most known ones are yellow gold, white gold and red gold. The slightly reddish colour would indicate red gold.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colored_gold

price depends largely on the gold price in general, size (weight) of the object, the state it is in, the age of the object, the actual design and if there are other materials used like diamonds and gemstones.

new rings of 14K rose/red gold at this very moment have a retail price of roughly 57 US dollar / gram.

Russian Rose Gold
by: Yvonne

Hi Jeannette! the reddish look of the metal of the jewelry that was handed down from your grandparents that came from Eastern Europe is more than likely because the metal is called - Rose Gold.

Rose gold is a gold and copper alloy widely used for specialized jewelry due to its reddish color. It was popular in Russia at the beginning of the nineteenth century, and is also known as RUSSIAN gold.

It is also known as pink gold and red gold.

Rose Gold is an alloy. There is no such thing as "pure rose gold". A common alloy for rose gold is 75% gold and 25% copper by mass (18 karat).

Thanks for writing in....
