I have a St Christopher 'silver' pendant. I live in uk but it does not have a uk hall mark. The design on the reverse is a 50's style art nouveau car with a 4 engined propellor plane flying above.This design isn't engraved but is 'raised'( I really am no expert) I've never really thought about it but I'm intrigued, I guess it's the makers mark. It says 'silver' below the design on reverse and the initials C J very small below that. Does anyone have an idea? Is it from uk with no hallmark, is it even silver. Oh, and i don't know exactly but it's 40 50 yrs old. Can you help? Be most appreciated

A complete British hallmark includes:



A sponsorís mark, indicating the manufacturer, or sponsor, of the article by initials of the individual or firm responsible
A standard mark, certifying the precious metal content
The fineness stated as parts per thousand or as karatage
The location of the assay office responsible for certifying the article
The date letter, showing the year in which the article was hallmarked (This became voluntary as of January 1, 1999)
The British hallmark for gold includes all five stamps. The standard mark for gold is a crown.

Hi,

I have a pair of earrings that I have had 2 jewelers look at and both of them can't tell me the maker mark. The earrings are 14K and each earring has a total weight of 1 carat of diamonds. The makers mark is a diamond hallmark with a captial "T" inside the diamond mark. Can you assist me with determing who made these earrings? Thank you, Vera New

I have a antique diamond ring with one larger diamond in the middle and one smaller diamond on each side 18KHGE and A with a circle around it printed inside the band. Also on inside the band directly under the diamonds is hand pin nailed gold. the ring itself is gold with either silver pewter or white gold cast over with the gold accents showing throughout top half. Could this ring be worth much besides sentimental values?

Question is, are the diamonds REAL? Have they been tested? HGE usually stands for "Heavy Gold Electroplate" and I'd be suspicious of diamonds being cast in anything other than solid gold.

Am trying to identify the makers mark on a marked 14k ring. It says 14k--then has what looks like house or cabin next to the 14k. Any info would be appreciated.

I found a ring in a drawer of a desk purchased at the Salvation army. It's gold rimmed around a concave transparent whitish rock. there's a gold star in the center, with a pentagram inside. There are letters around the inside of the pentagram...R A T A L, and another symbol, maybe a pentagram in the very center. Each point of the 5-pointed star has a gold symbol in it. Hard to make out. One looks like a tree or an arrowhead.I can't quite make out the others, same basic shape..one might be a lightning bolt. Each point has a different color field behind the symbol. colbalt blue, aqua, pale blue, light green & I think red.I would email a picture of it if you could tell me where to mail it.

I just purchased a 18kt roadrunner pin his breast is made up of 1-1/2 carats high quality diamonds with G clarity and he has a ruby eye. I was told it was vintage has a maker mark H which is is marked in scroll.
Any ideas. A gemologist thought it might be Harry Winston. The pin is approx. 1" long weighs 13 grams of gold. Please email me at h.halo@yahoo.com
Thank you

I also own a similar ring I inherited from my grandmother. After much research I have learned the sideways w stands for J.R. Wood and Sons Jewellers from New York City.
