Jewelry markings

I have to find out what certain markings on jewelry mean.

925-I think it means silver, but I have to be more in depth.

han-hand made?

S O- no idea

F-no idea



925 is indeed sterling silver.

I have no idea on the others.

The 925 specifically means 92.5% silver. I couldn't find anything about the others.

Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. The F could be the color of a diamond, having less color than G, H, etc. Here is a site that has a glossary of jewelry terms:

http://www.kohlscorporation.com/ecom/valueadded/jewelry.htm

The F for pearls would be freshwater.

It would be helpful to know where exactly were these markings and on what.

Will the markings on a ring tell me if a diamond is real or not? I am pretty sure my ring says GF"A" does anyone know what it means?
It looks real.

  1. GF means gold filled. and the leter A might represent the date. english markings on dishes have leters to represent the year it was made; this might also be true for english jewelry
