I have no real knowledge of vintage jewelry or what it's worth or how disierable so on. After my Nana from my mother's side passed away I ended up with a lot of really unique and special pieces. Her being a military wife from England adds another twist. Any info helps Thank You 0314210104b.jpg 0314210103a.jpg 0314210103.jpg 0314210104.jpg 0314210104b.jpg 0314210105c.jpg 0314210106.jpg 0314210105a.jpg 0314210105b.jpg

What fun! And how lucky you are to have such a gift from your Nana!

Gold jewelry made in England usually carries a set of hallmarks that identify the purity of the gold, plus when and where the purity was identified (assayed.). Unfortunately it’s often hard to read all but the crispest of hallmarks from photographs. You have a much better chance of “reading” them yourself, with the jewelry in hand. This site provides a good tool for identifying British hallmarks:

Stone types and stone quality can also be difficult to assess on-line. There are easy-to-use diamond testers that can be had rather inexpensively from Amazon etc. also, I’ve found that many jewelers (and some pawn shops) are happy to test a few stones for you to determine if they are Diamonds. Some can also give you an “educated guess” on color stones, but will charge for definitive testing.

Have you tried cleaning the jewelry? Any jewelry that’s survived two generations will probably survive a gentle at-home cleaning.

Please do share more photos with us!
