    So I have this gold pendant with an amethyst. When I dug it out of the box of jewelery I inherited it was so tarnished neither I nor a jeweler saw the stamp. After a bit of cleaning its shining much brighter. Its has an odd stamp, which to me looks like 'AM.DBL' and a circle to the right with either a number or a letter over a T '?/T' who what when where worth 20190725_013824.jpg 20190725_013704.jpg 20190725_013557.jpg ? Is it real? Google gives me nothing. Any help is appreciated

    If it doesn’t have a gold mark it is probably just gold plated. A pawnbroker normally has a machine (like a gel pen) where they can confirm gold content or not. A Presidium gem tester can also tell you if the gem is glass.
    If it were gold with an amethyst it’s value would be based on gold weight with a bit extra for the amethyst, maybe $150 - $200. If gold plated with a glass gem, maybe $10.
    The T/T is possibly a brand/ makers mark, I’m not familiar with that though.
    The styling looks to me as 1960s, irrespective it’s a lovely pendant.

    Yes to everything Bron said, though my first reaction was 1970’s.

    I doubt the amethyst is a doublet - amethyst doesn’t seem to be rare enough to warrant hat type of treatment.

    ETA a discussion about a similar pendant: https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/118966-am-dbl-ad-gold-tone-and-aquamarine-pen

    Another possibility – the DBL stands for double rolled gold, i.e., extra thick gold plating. https://www.etsy.com/listing/687690...query=am+dbl+jewelry&ref=sr_gallery-1-1&pro=1

    Thank you! I am positive they're one and the same. I have no idea how my mother came by so many different pieces from different places. I'm having so much fun. Thx for the input.

    I am and I do. Though I may give it to a friend born in February. I always love receiving my birthstone, feels extra special and more personal :)
