What Do The Letters Inside Rings Mean?

10k CN [D]???

I get so many emails on this a day, it’s insane.

People want to know what the letters or numbers mean that are stamped inside their rings.

Examples would be:

  • 4K WB
  • T.H.E.,U w/ an arrow run through it
  • 750 & 110 VR
  • IBB
  • 9CI CJM
  • CAL
  • MAZ
  • ZC
  • lkk
  • MA
  • a\

Most people already know what some of the words and numbers mean, like 14K, PLAT, SS, .585 (and if not, see my full list of stamps and numbers here). But the letters that usually ajoin these are very different indeed.

9 times out of ten, they don’t refer to the ring at all. As in, the type of metal it is, or the actual gemstones or diamonds, or even the carat weight or ring size… (normal things that are generally marked inside the ring shank).

Letters are often 1 of 3 things:

  1. The initials of the Goldsmith (the person who carved and created your ring)
  2. The initials of the Jeweler (the company that sells the link, like Tiffany or Hearts on Fire)
  3. The initials or logo of the Manufacturer who produces the ring.

It’s like me putting “RS” inside a band. It’s meaningful to me, and I can identify my own work, but it’s not very helpful to anyone else.

With 7.4 billion people on Earth, and with thousands and thousands of designers, jewelry stores and manufacturers, it’s easy to see that the initials and letters and numbers could be anything:

  • 3 stars
  • 255
  • M276
  • 1925
  • D with square around it
  • C 25
  • G 97 E
  • 08 9
  • HB
  • G3
  • IB25


The “RS” I used as an example could refer to Richard Scott, Robin Starling, Ralph Sherlock, Raymond Stores… or whomever.

It could be endless searching for the right RS. That’s also why I started another post for unidentified jewelry stamps, to keep track of them all and to allow others to help identify these crazy letters, symbols and numbers

Plus, keep in mind that the ring stamp may have not been hit hard enough? Maybe only a portion of the actual stamp (like the 4K shown in the image) made it to the ring? Or, maybe some of the letters or numbers got rubbed away by normal wear and tear? Maybe they were polished out? Maybe the ring was repaired or sized and the letters got cut out?

In reality, you’ll probably never know what exactly happened or what it is.

There’s no official list anywhere that people can put their identifying marks on, so everyone would know.

It’s all just a big mystery

(They do sell jeweler’s hallmark stamp books that lists many of the more popular ones, and it could help you.)

So if you’ve got something in your ring that doesn’t make sense, either ask the jeweler that you bought it from, take it to an antique dealer (they got a good eye for this), or leave it in the comments below, and maybe someone else will know.

Cheers! :)

    • Andrea ONeill // April 23, 2022 at 12:17 pm // Reply

      I’m not aware of any significance of these numbers, except that “925“ (sterling silver). could quite easily look like either “375” or “0.25”. It happens to me often. You may want to check the stamps again closely, turning the item at different angles,just to eliminate that possibility.

      Au is the elemental symbol for gold, 373 likely means that it’s 9kt since 9kt would be right about 37.3% gold. Don’t know about the rest

    I’m at my wits end! This is just a shot in the dark.. but I found your blog and was curious if you know what brand I’ve got. It’s a gold necklace, with a gold butterfly that is filled with roughly 40 crystals (filling the wings entirely). On the back appears to be a lowercase “df” and inside the circular portion of the ‘d’ looks to be a very small ‘v’. Any ideas?? Would send a pic if it would help! Thanks!!

We have a diamond ring that has either a fancy, large (non-capital) letter ‘A’ OR a ‘0’ plus another number, in front of the ’14K’ stamped on the inside of the ring. Even with a magnifying glass, it is hard to decipher which, lol. Any clues you could share would be helpful!

    I found earrings and a matching necklace in my grandmother’s stuff with the stamp “Sterling C.T.” on them. Does anyone know what the “C.T.” stands for.

    • I just inherited jewelry from my mother in law and have an earring and necklace set stamped with Sterling CT. The earrings are screw on so I assume must be fairly old. I cannot find anything on the internet of what this stamp means!

    • Adam C Pepper // April 6, 2020 at 1:43 pm // Reply

      I just bought a storage unit and found LOTS of vintage and antique jewelry. One of the crosses is stamped “STERLING C.T.”. Sterling is fairly obvious and means the metal alloy used to make the piece is 92.5% Silver. The C.T. is the manufacturer and/or designer. In this case it’s a designer as it’s clearly not a big manufacturer. The fact that all the pieces in my purchase are very old tells me this piece is also very old (which is why we can’t find anything online about C.T.). The vast majority of the pieces I bought are from Italy… so I’m loosely guessing it came from Italy. SO, my best guess is that C.T. is the designer/silversmith’s initials. The hole in this cross was not drilled by modern technology. The ring that a necklace would go through has rough cuts and was pinched together, again not modern technology. The cross itself was 3 pieces put together, the long center portion and two short sides. It was melted together, then sanded on both the face and rear as well as the joints… again this shows much older practices. That’s the easy stuff. As far as a date or age of the piece or designer… that’s tough. Taking the age of all the other pieces I HAVE identified from this same lot, I would roughly guess it was made 1940’s-1950’s. Hope this information helps even though it’s not super accurate.

    I have a cocktail ring I have not been able to identify for a long time now the marking show that its 18k electroplated but the last marking is what I’m having trouble figuring out its S/A exactly how I have typed it

  107. Interested in identifying a sterling necklace. There are only 3 Mark’s on it. One mark looks like an ‘R’ with the right and left bottom of it scrolling. Nie if you turn it in the same direction as the word sterling then it looks like a ‘Y’ with both left and right being cursive. There is another mark that I’m going to describe in the same direction of the word sterling. Kind of looks like a lower case ‘y’ but it’s roundish with the left corner partly open. Then it has a stem going out the top. No other names, Mark’s, etc. not even a faded one

    • 14kt FIC on clasp of pearls – I’ve been told that the FIC stands for “Finest In Class” and is often associated with Akoya cultured pearls. I always thought it meant “Finesse Clasp” which is just a type or brand of fish hook clasp used on pearl strands.
