Gold Marks
by: Anonymous

There are many ways gold can be marked usually depending on where it was made.
Here is a link which shows demonstrates UK hallmarks including showing that 585 means 14K gold.The higher the number the more gold content. I believe that 585 means the gold content is 58.5 gold.

American Marks are often 9K, 10K, 14K, 18K, 22K, 24K etc referring to the karat of gold...the higher the number the more gold content.
I believe the other marks, such as star, additional number or initials are makers marks. They may be specifically Italian makers marks.

silver marked 800 means there is 80% silver content - 900 means there is 90% silver content
silver marked 925 is 92.5% silver content and is considered "sterling silver"
