Italian Jewelry Marks - Vicenza
by: Anonymous

Hi Carol

thanks for writing in with the following hallmark questions:
"I have an 18ct gold 28" necklace each link is in like a figure eight and alternate yellow gold and then white gold.

There is the 750 mark and below that I think it is-a solid star 207 v1 this is on the clasp,on the reverse it has what I think is the initaials F.N (or poss.M) I have been to Jewellers and they don't tell me a lot only to get it insured and all three that I have been to seem eager for me to part with it."

18K, 18ct or 750 (parts per 1000) or 75% gold. Most quality pieces are 18ct. It is the minimum gold standard for sale in Italy.

Each Italian smith was registered with an assigned number after government regulation in 1934. A new regulation in 1968 ordered the maker's mark form change to a five pointed star.
VI is the abbreviation of the province where the silver or goldsmith was registered in this case - Vicenza, Italy.

best wishes,
Yvonne Hammouda-Eyre
