Italian Gold Ring | Maker mark?
by: Anonymous

Hi! I'm looking for the maker with four arrows, the head parts like greater/lesser than symbols and 14k ITALY below them. The ring also say, MOD DEP in capital letters. It has a man and woman on either side of the ring supporting the stone at the top of the ring. Mine had a 3D piece of brushed gold rather than a stone.

What is this marking?
by: Anonymous

I have a pair of earrings marked "750" and "*1784AL". I used an asterisk in front of the 17, but it should be a star. I know the "750" means 18k, but what does the other markings mean?
Thank you

323 or 223 AL
by: Anonymous

Experts, Do you know the maker for Italian 18K gold, 323AL or 223AL. The mark is in such a place as to be illegible. I have used a loupe but this is the best I could make out. Thank you.

Antique Italian Hallmarks used Variations
by: Anonymous

Between 1872 to 1933 - ANTIQUE Italian hallmarks can display variations of the common control marks. Maker's marks varied, initials, full name, symbols and COMBINATIONS were used, which might have included city names and addresses. Italian pieces of this period may have a maker's mark but no standard mark. It could be an Italian maker's mark.

can the maker be i.d.'d from the number?
by: Alice

I have a modern gold bracelet from Italy with, among other marks, the number 212. Assuming that this is the number assigned by the government to a particular jeweler, how/where do I find a list of artists and their numbers?

modern Italian gold hallmarks
by: aliceinkeywest@gmail.com

I have a bracelet marked 'Italy' '18K' '750' and '212 AL'. My research tells me that 'AL' is the abbreviation for the province of Alessandria. Is '212' the maker's i.d.? Can anyone help me with the final piece of the puzzle? Thank you!

Italian Hallmarks from 1872
by: Anonymous

Hello Fiona thank you for your question about Italian hallmarks. Before 1870 Italy was a diverse group of kingdoms, duchies and city states. The land was ruled in absentia by France, Austria, Spain and the Vatican.

The marks on metals up until 1872 were as diverse and as complex as the politics and the power struggles of the ruling classes. In that year, 1872, the new nation instituted a loose but fully national hallmarking system.

Italian Hallmarks from 1872 will give you some idea of the marks you can find on Italian jewelry.

with regards
