Kk marking on bracelet
by: Lola

Hi all!

I recently purchased a bracelet that looks to be old. It has blue stones and white little diamond around each blue stone. On the back there is a KK stamped. But they are together and one is slightly higher than the other one. The shorter K connects at the start of the bottom upper K. I hope that makes sense.

I have no idea about jewelry and was wondering if another had any ideas of where it could be from? Thank you!

KK mark on my dads gold ring
by: Anonymous

Hello,

My mother recently gave me my dads gold wedding band. He pasted away many years ago. The story about this ring. My mom and dad lived in Japan from the 50s to the 70s. My dad was in the U.S. Air Force and was stationed at several bases around Japan. My mother told me that my dad bought this ring at a base called Yokota. I did not ask her what year he bought it so my guess is in the late 50s, about the time they got married. I dont know anything else about the ring except that the inside reads 18kt and it has a hallmark of KK stamped inside an indented diamond shape.

A Reputable Jeweller
by: Anonymous

Hi Sam
where in the world are you? I might be able to recommend a reputable jeweller in your area. Depends where you are.

This video is good to determine the karat or gold purity and the value of the gold but if you just have the one chain - I would advise going to a reputable jeweller in your area and asking them to test it for you.

If it is Italian it would probably be gold.

A little help please?
by: Samantha

My father gave me a necklace for my graduation present there are no markings on it except for the back of the clasp which has K K . The chain is more like a box weave style I wish I could add an image of it it's very old he has had it since the 80's and the man he bought it from said it was italian.

Other than that I have no history on it and when I took it into a local gold buyer she tested it and told me that it was testing like a 14k but she believed it was plated or something though my dad swears it's solid.

How can you tell if it's solid or plated?

And who could I take it to that I could trust to tell me the truth instead of wanting to by it at a cheaper price?

Hi Brenda

what an interesting find Brenda! Your local jewelry can test the gold purity for you. You might like to send in an image in a follow-up submission, without an image of the mark, it's impossible to provide a definitive identification - there are many initial marks, that do look similar. After you determine the gold content (and provide images) you might like to have your item appraised online.

Happy Hunting!
Yvonne

I have a KK chain
by: Brenda, Ma.

Recently I went to Texas to visit my son who is in the military. While I was there I went to a second hand store and purchased some old costume jewelry in a zip lock bag. In the bag was a "gold" pocket watch chain with the letters KK not touching, on the clasp. It is an old chain and looks like 18K gold but there are no other marks.

The links on each end are soldered closed so they can't be pulled apart. I was very excited when I read about the KK mark on Anonymous's bracelet clasp. I plan to have my chain tested for sure now to see if it is gold. Thanks.

KK on Bracelet
by: Anonymous

Hi thanks for writing in...

would you happen to have anymore information or any history on this bracelet? Do you know where/how your Mum acquired it? The initials, "KK" on the gold bracelet clasp are the initials of the firm or the individual who registered the mark.

Without having the benefit of a photo it's pretty much all speculation, however, if it helps, the initials K K facing this same direction as this - K K, with the letters close together but not touching, are the initial marks of the - KUZMA KONOV (Gold & Silver Smiths, St. Petersburg, Russia) - ca 1890s - 1917.

best wishes,

Yvonne Hammouda-Eyre
