i have a diamond engagement ringthat has WIC 14k stamped in it. WHat does that mean anyone?
WIC is probally the company stamp. Most companies mark the abreviations of their company inside the ring. This insures that the product is theirs, and not another companies.

Hi all,
I have a bracelet that looks silver but instead of the usual 925 stamp it has 10k, does anyone knoe what this means?
Thanks
It could mean that the item is 10 karat white gold. If the item is bright white, it could have a rhodium plating on the item, which makes it shine, similar to platinum.

I think the one of the items stamped 925, that isnt changing color still has a rhodium plating over it. This method is used to keep the item white, and avoid discoloration. With out the rhodium plating, silver would turn dark after time.

the ring stamped 375 could be 9 karat gold, which means that 37.50% is gold and the 62.50% is other metals (alloy). I seen this at my store before, but would you consider an item with that little percantage still gold? It turn grey because of the acid. Even though there is still gold in the item, the amount of gold relative to the other metals is very small.
Take your ring to your local jeweler, they can test it for you, with a basic acid test. It shoudl only cost you a few bucks, but save your skin.=D

I HAVE USED A METHOD THAT I THINK IS PRETTY GOOD IF YOU CAN GET A HOLD OF A GOOD METAL DETECTOR SET IT TO GOLD PLACE YOUR JEWERELY UNDER YOUR RUG OR MATTRESS AND SEE IF THE DETECTOR PICKS IT UP

I have a gold chain necklace that is stamped 14kt, Italy and has a M in a box above the 14kt mark. Is this gold? Or does the M in box indicate a vermeille?
