How Do You Know What You Have?

By law all gold items are to be stamped as to their gold content. However, over the years sometimes the stamps wear off or in the repair process are removed. This is what you should look for:

Gold – US Stamps  10kt, 14kt, 18kt, 22kt, 24kt

Gold – European Stamps  585 = 14kt  750 = 18kt

Platinum is stamped .95, or Plat., or 10% iridium platinum
