Thank you Yvonne
by: Anonymous

I'm not sure where the ring is from. I guess my concern is if it is actually real. It is being sold in the UK. I am familiar with the European and UK hallmarks. This is nothing like I've seen before.

They have said it acid tests for 18K gold. I have my own diamond and gold testing equipment, so as long as this company takes returns, I guess it reduces my risk.

Thanks you so much, again.

Not Sequential Hallmarking
by: Yvonne

Good Morning Eileen,

there are many different methods used in hallmarking. England, began using SEQUENTIAL hallmarks in 1544. You can clealry see this mark is not sequential. Sequential marks, show the maker's mark, karat fineness, a millesimal fineness mark, an assay office mark and a date letter. Other countries that use this method of hallmarking are:
Finland, Ireland, Sweden, United Kingdom and Scotland, so in regards your ring's country of make, we can pretty safely say this lovely ring, you are considering buying, is probably NOT from one of the above countries.

Kind Regards
Yvonne

Numbers on Antique Cluster Ring
by: Anonymous

Hi there,

if I look closely at the numbers in this photo, they read 7350 - there is a number three second number, which means its not a quality mark at all.

Marks
by: Anonymous

If there is anyone who knows about Georgian jewelry and the kind of marks that are on this ring, ex 730, I'd really appreciate hearing from you. I haven't purchased the ring yet, but I want to and have made an offer.
It is just so pretty and so unique.

Thanks all in advance

mark says 730
by: Anonymous

The only reference I have found for 730% gold has to do with what's called green gold. This one has me completely confused...and I'm still trying to buy it.

750 is a valuable mark for 18K

Rose cut diamonds?
by: Joan

Hi Eileen

What a lovely piece. Are they old rose cut diamonds in the ring? I think it has a Georgian look to it. Do you plan on selling this ring? You won't have a problem. Lovely Cluster Ring-
Good Luck with the marks.
Joan
