I’ve written a lot about ring stamps in the past (the marks stamped inside rings).
Just about every ring has something inside the shank that identifies that ring. Whether it be the type of metal used, the carat weight of the gemstones and diamonds, a jeweler’s stamp (symbol, logo, trademark), or the manufacturer’s initials or mark.
The imprints you’ll find are endless.
But still, as much as I try to identify and explain any initials or numbers, it’s an impossible feat to do.
Which is where you come in…
Maybe you can help solve some of these burning questions. Maybe you’ve seen them before? An artist, jeweler, company, maker, someone that uses a particular avatar or wing-ding?
So I’m posting these pictures (a ton of pictures), that readers have sent in over the past years asking for help.
Here we go…
Can you identify these stamps?
(Keep in mind, it’s not the CZ, 10k, 14k, or SS that we’re concerned about, it’s the symbol, number or letters next to it)
If you know what they mean, leave it in the comments below with the picture number.
And if you have others you’d like to identify, send me an email and an image on my contact page here.
I’ll do my best!
Granted, many times I simply don’t know. And many times, the photo and description is too blurry, hard to read, or impossible to see…
Like these images sent in here:
Some people send no image, just a crazy description like:
It’s a sideways diamond with a circle around it, and inside the center is a T or a Cross. Next to that is an O, or a 0, but it could be a smaller circle, or an A, P? Any ideas?
Descriptions many times can be useless without a good closeup photo…
Plus, most manufacturers or jewelers don’t advertise what their logo is. Meaning, unless you bought your ring from them, or know exactly where it came from, finding out where those letters originate from could be hopeless.
If you can help, do so!
If not, maybe someone else can?
