Info and Pic of the French Eagle Head.
by: Anonymous

Hi thanks for writing in.

Pure gold is 1000 fine; 18k gold is 75 percent or 750 fine. Consequently, an 18k ring made in Europe would be stamped 750.

The eagle head hallmark has been the French 18+ gold guarantee mark since 1838 to the present.

Just to let you know that there are a lot of birds and bird head marks on metal. Examine the mark carefully and be sure it is the Guarantee Gold Purity Mark Eagle of France. Here is the French Eagle mark to compare with...

You are welcome to upload photos of the mark in a follow-up submission. Please type "what can you tell me about gold bracelet.." in the subject field so that we can assign to your original question here.

Happy Hunting!
