ACC Marking
by: Anonymous

I have an Accurist watch with the marking ACC which seems appropriate given the manufacturers name.

UK Hallmarks on Nanna's Ring
by: Yvonne Hammouda-Eyre

Good Morning!

The marks on Nanna's rose gold ring sound like they are UK Hallmarks of the authentic kind. The Anchor is the symbol for the Birmingham Assay office. A crown followed by the numbers "22" are purity marks on UK (England, Scotland, Wales & N. Ireland) & IRELAND on 22ct GOLD - ca 1844 - 1974. The ring is comprised of high carat gold and very high quality.

The letter L is the date stamp.

UK Hallmarks mostly consist of 3-5 Marks, not necessarily aligned or oriented the same. Marks include maker's mark, Town mark, Standard (Purity) mark, Date Letter, and Duty mark.


Concerning the letters Acc - these will be the maker of the piece who registered the mark at the Birmingham Assay office, however, the description of these marks is vague, for example are the marks in a surround or not, are there dots between letters, are all the letters capitals, etc. Without the benefit of an image, all I can offer, is to point you in the direction of a UK Jewelry Manufacturer that it may be. You can take it from here and research these british Hallmarks further.

Possibly,

Alexander Clark & Co. (Silver & Gold Manufacturer, Birmingham, Chester & London, UK) - ca 1820s - 1906

Best Wishes

Yvonne
