Q. I just bought a ring from the $2 box at local 2nd hand store. I don't normally but it caught my eye on my way to a warm coat and so pretty and shiny. Anyway when I got home I noticed that there is a mark on outside of the band it is a bit warn but I think it's a 91, 61, or even a gl but the last mark looks like it could be a 5,2,s. Oh I don't know,I think I am more curious as to why a mark would be on the outside.. I am sorry to bother you over probably nothing, but if you have any ideas I would love to hear them. Thank you

Q. Hi, I have a set of engagement ring and band no Stamped it's a yellow ring but I'm confused of checking what metal it is? It was acid tested from 10k,14k,18k and no reaction then I used acid for 22k and it was fade after few seconds. I want to make sure what it is so I pour the whole 14k acid in a plastic cup and left the ring inside whole night and it turned in to a light yellow color in the morning (no green) what metal is this?and additional when I rubbed into a stone it's a white color metal
one day I cleaned it with a metal cleaning solution and it turned back to a deep shiny yellow color
Can you pls tell me if this metal is gold or not? Thank you

Copyleft

A. Hi Nissa. The "copyleft" symbol is interesting. On the one hand Wikipedia says it has no legal meaning; but on the other hand it says it means you are free to copy the design in your own works, but if you do, you can't copyright them.

As for books or sites with hallmarks, many suggestions have already been offered on this thread; repeating stuff on a thread that's already too-long thread would hinder people more than help them. Please review their suggestions and share your thoughts. And share the Jameson please. Thanks.

Comment:

Thank you to all whom have had answered some of these questions. I have read quite a few. And it baffles me to see how many people ask the same questions over and over; not only do a lot of initials and letters mean makers marks but they could also mean somebody's initials that it was bought for :-)
