  2. A question about old gold
    Started by Lettuce-Leaf 07/07/2014

    Hi John, Please could you tell me why some pieces of 'old gold' (jewellery) is stamped with hallmarks, whilst others are just marked "9ct" etc? (I'm wondering whether it's because the hallmarked items have a higher gold content than 9ct?)
