Chunky Silver Ring - Looks like a J and Upsidedown Y

This is a heavy silver ring. It looks like an abstract design on the front. on the inside it says "Hand Carved" "Allyson" (I assume that was engraved for a gift. and then an odd symbol. It looks like to me like a bent J and then an upside Y. It has two repair marks, so it might h...

Three Metal Mexican Sterling Pin - RM Hallmark.

Round pin. over 2 inches across. made of sterling silver, i can't tell if the sandwich is onyx or if the sides are just inlaid with onyx. inlaid with brass and i think onyx. The mark is round Hecho en Mexico - Sterling - the center one is what's throwing me, it looks like RM, but the M might have a ...

Attractive Pendant - with Puffin Looking Hallmark

Def looks like sterling to me. the only hallmark i could find was a small puffin looking creature. It's on the side, so it might be something else. is it a makers mark or silver content thing? https://s31.postimg.cc/v0715e45n/RIMG6742.jpg https://s31.postimg.cc/oz9c8ccej/RIMG6743.jpg https://s31.pos...

Large Amber Sterling Ring - Unusual Marks.

This is a huge smooth amber stone. it is set in a sterling setting, with interesting floral accents, that look scandinavian. on the back outside of the shank are three small hallmarks. I've used a macro lens to capture them. Any ideas? I can't figure out what they could be. Not marked sterling, 925 ...

Large Silver Ring - Odd Hallmark

Marked 925 in an oval. in a little square next to it looks like some sort of script, or hallmark. I can't make it out. It looks like it might be a K with a bird next to it? I used a 40x digital magnifier scope and this is the best i could get with it. Any ideas? https://preview.ibb.co/mHcsmR/1_RIMG5...

I've tapped out the research i can do on this. This is a good size silver bowl, 7 inches across and 4 inches tall. It is silver with a gold wash on the inside. it weighs nearly nine ounces. It is marked Lavorato A Mano (hand made) Then a symbol that might be a B or GB? I can't sort it out. The last ...

G&D & Co - Necklace.

This has an unusual clasp mechanism. The patent is from 1940. but the piece looks more modern, unless it is just in amazing condition. i found some references to G&D but it looks more modern/industrial level jewelry making. https://s27.postimg.org/ga5tvqdy7/RIMG1596.jpg https://s27.postimg.org/u...

Deco or Repro - Signed "Sterling Vintage"

This is a frustrating mark, as the name is so vague it's hard to research it. The piece is a brooch that can be converted to a pendant with a clever hinge mechanism. The main piece looks like rock crystal. it has a genuine diamond in the center. It is marked with a hallmark i can't make out and then...

Re: Sterling Shoe Clips - Sheffield but Odd Date Code

Trev,

That is it! thank you. I did think it was odd that it looked like an early place and had hallmarks and sterling on it.

thanks!

Sterling Shoe Clips - Sheffield but Odd Date Code

I looked on the date key list here, but didn't see one that matches the mark. I can't imagine it is very old, as it's also marked sterling. though maybe the sterling mark was added later? also, i assume these were sweater or (permanent) dress clips, unless you think they might be something different...
