Its not gold!
by: Anonymous

Items stamped like this are not gold they have a gold layer over the top but have very little value, the item will usually look very much like it is gold and it will test as gold but only on the outer surface. This type of jewelry will look nice and stay nice looking until the base metal starts degrading or corroding.

Chapiado Hecho -CH
by: Christine Romero

CH stands for Chapiado Hecho. Meaning yes it's plated, not fake enough to not carry real gold, but gold enough to carry another source material by it's manufacturer decision on selling a product that won't easily fade off, cause rash reaction to it's client's flesh, guarantee's their product to be stronger than gold because gold in purity itself can break much easier and to conclude it's price range...most of theses products are very cheap only because of the country it was made from.

The real price for the product should've been more higher than real pure gold only because it's cover gives it's glory, but it's under man made material gives it the strength for a longer lifetime production. This has been brought to you by your uneducated south central city of angels common sense homegirl that doesn't have it made but does know real against the fake, and can value it for the realest more than what lays under the hood. Like cheap wine can taste just like fine wine if you let it set for a while then pop that bottle and you know what you got and it didn't cost you an eye. Deuces!

CH and Mexican Slang
by: Anonymous

That's interesting - any chance Chris of seeing a photo of this mark? Apparently Chafa means "cheap and ugly" in Mexican slang but wasn't aware of the Spanish derivation "chapa" and the association with gold hallmarking. Thanks

CH=Fake

Ch stands for "chapa" meaning plated in Spanish. 14k ch is never gold, always gold plated.

14 K CH | Bracelet
by: Anonymous

Hi Chris thanks for writing in. The 14 K mark is the gold purity mark. It tells you the piece is made of 14K, 14ct or 585 (parts per 1000) or 58.5% gold. 14K is common in the US. It could be white gold or yellow gold.

The letters could possibly be a maker's mark. Not sure. Quite unusual. You might also like to search under the link, Jewelry Marks - US 1922 Edition
which is listed in the Jewelry Resources.

Happy Hunting!
Yvonne
