Another Checo small ring
by: Anonymous

I have a small ring marked checo. It has another mark that says platinoid. That is a metal alloy. The ring has an oval amber colored glass cabochon.

CHECO

I have arming that sounds identical. I found it in my Dad's jewel box. It definitely does not feel like gold, but it is lovely.
There was no family info found.

CHECO stamp on ring
by: Mary K.

I have a ring/band that has beautiful designs on it, and the colour of the metal is a soft yellow, almost white. The first few times I wore it my finger did show a bit of green, but it has now been professionally cleaned, and my finger does not turn colour. It is from the early 1900's. My grandmother's (who I inherited the ring from) step-mother did come from the southern USA. It has the exact same marking "CHECO" with no other stamps on it. Unfortunately, any other history of the ring has been lost.

CHECO Gold Plated Stays
by: Anonymous

Stumbled on a set of original gold plated collar stays listed for sale by the seller Drury House Antiques on Rubylane. The Collar in its original leather box with original set of 9 gold plated stays, circa 1926 -

if the ring is gold plated - Checo could be the same manufacturer - novelties and/or gold plated jewelry early 1900s
maybe worth following up

Here is a screenshot of the Checo name. Hope it helps any Checo hunters out there ;-)

CHECO - Texas Jeweler
by: Kara

I am unsure of the Czech marking as I have found a few other people selling other rings and listing them as this: "The inside of the band is marked "Checo", which I believe does not refer to Czech, but a jeweler in Texas that produced jewelry in the late 1800's and early 1900's." This is where I run into problems, I can't find anything on this jeweler. It would be the correct time period for the belcher setting and also the not having a purity stamp. Thanks again for trying to solve this mystery.

Czech Repulic Hallmarking History
by: Anonymous

In 1992, the former communist country and free and democratic country of Czechoslovakia peacefully divided itself along cultural and lingusitic lines into two new independant nations, the Czech Repulic and the Repulic of Slovakia. The two countires created a hallmarking agreement in which both would use the same core imagery and frame-shapes for their domestic hallmarks.


Special Use marks, (there are two ditinct hallamrks known as old item marks which are warning marks indicating that an old item (i.e., antique) is below the minium 585 fineness standard.

One of the warning hallmarks for old gold articles less than the new minimum 585 standard looks similiar to the mark on this ring in question, although the picture of the mark is not clear,

Checo
by: Anonymous

I have not tested the gold yet. The stone shows some cloudiness and inclusions under a loupe. Possibly an emerald? And usually a plated ring will turn my fingers colors or will start peeling, no signs of that yet. Guess this one might need to go to the jeweler for further assistance! Thank you!

Possibly Post 1993 Czech Repulic Mark
by: Anonymous

Hi Kara

interesting markings - have you tested the gold content? It should be under 585? And the stone? Any clues?

Best Regards
