Hi,

Always embed your images as very few members will click on links.

Is there some reason that makes you think that the item is Italian?

Hi,
More likely French but then one more guarantee mark is needed (for gold).
In lozange:
Fabricant bijoutier
Jewelry manufacturer
Gavet, Charles
initiales C.G.
symboles un trèfle à quatre feuilles

Symbol: a four leaf clover

There was Charles Gavet who was the founder of family business and worked much earlier, see here:

Can you post the image of the whole item (earrings ?).

I think there is CG in the logo, too.
Besides,there is sun symbol used by the founder in early 19th century.
Regards

I believe it is Italian because of the "sun" shaped lgo similar to that of Vicenza marks

I found a similar "Sun-Symbol" on a piece of 750 gold Vicenza jewelry, and it did mention the following:

"G. O. I. (Gioielleria, Oreficeria, Incisioni) stands for ‚‚Jewelers, Goldsmiths, Engravers‚"

So if this is Italian, would the prominent "G" just designate the maker as a Goldsmith?

But if it is Italian, why does it not have the usual-shaped cartouche and the letters and numbers which you always see on Italian jewelry?

It does look French on first glance, but I did see a similar sun-symbol on Vicenza gold, so I am confused as well.
