XX on 585 Necklace
by: Anonymous

Hi Peggy thanks for writing in....

We've had a few one X marks on Jewelry questions, and a XXX mark on jewelry question but so far, not a XXXX mark (which happens to also be an australian beer) and this will be our first XX mark jewelry question. Congratulations!

Here are some X info links:

Another thing to consider is that X as far as we can tell, in some instances might be marked on gold:
XXX = Gold Content or .750 3/4 or 18 of 24K :-)

and just to confuse us even more, XXX with another X above the three in the center is a US maker's mark.


585 are percentages of gold content. They often are the only marks on items of European or Asian origin. Sometimes they'll have the karat equivalent stamped alongside: 585 (or 583) is equal to 14K, 750 is 18K, 417 is 10K, 333 is 8K, etc.



Happy Hunting!
