Hi Cathy

Please have a look at this link:

Egyptian Gold Mark
by: Yvonne

Hi Bob, it looks like the sea gull to me, which is the standard mark for Egypt.

Within the first shield is 18ct written in Arabic script. The last hallmark, after the Egyptian standard mark, the sea-gull, is the Egyptian date letter, after a long examination with my jewelers loupe, this gold mark which I can just make out is the Egyptian date letter mark, and is the Arabic letter Dal -
English equivalent to D.

This gold wedding band was made in Egypt 1999-02 or 1951-53. In either case, it is not an antique gold wedding ring.

You can find a link with the Arabic date letters here in English:
EGYPTIAN DATE LETTER MARKS ON JEWELRY

Between 1916 and 1940 Egyptian date marks will be written in English, not in Arabic writing due to English occupation of Egypt.

So if Egyptian made jewelry contains date letters in Arabic writing, the item would have been hallmarked after 1940.


There is more information on Antique Jewelry Investor about Egyptian marks on jewelry here.

Thank you for your question.
