French Assay Marks
by: Anonymous

The most easily recognized and commonly seen French mark is the eagle?s head, in use since 1838, indicating 18 karat gold. Assayed French gold is never lower than 18k. The mark can be found on jewelry in any number of places. Try looking for it on the gallery of the ring or on the back surface of a piece.

The boar's head is the mark seen on French silver jewelry, it's the mark of the Paris Assay office up until 1961.
