Most jewelry is stamped to indicate the elemental composition. These stamps often appear on the clasps of bracelets or necklaces and on the inside of rings. Gold stamps may be marked by karat (for example "14k" or "18k") or by percentage of gold (for example "585" or "750"). Common silver markings include .999 Fine, 925, 925 NV, 835, Sterling, Taxco, and STER. Common platinum markings include Pt, Irid.Plat, Pt 900, Pt 950, and PLAT.
Please do not send anything marked EP, GE, GF, GP, GS, HGE, or HGP. These indicate the jewelry is plated in a very small amount of gold and made mostly of other metals. If your jewelry does not have a stamp (or you can't read those tiny little letters) you can still send it to us! We will evaluate it at our Processing Center and include its value in the price quote we send to you.
