I have a opel ring gold stamped inside band is 14k  R what does R mean? Does this mean it is not real Gold?

Answer
Hi Tina,

It could be the makers mark , it may be R  for Rose gold but by your picture it dont seem to be .
No , I must admit I ve seem some unusual marks inside rings lately  .. Im sorry I cant give you a better answer .. but we can be sure It certainly does not  mean its "not real "
best regards Rod

Expertise

all info pertaining to australian opals and opal fields is ok. online valuations is difficult but not entirely impossible. Photographs of stones should clearly show weight in carats and scale in mm. naturally photographs of opals are the hardest thing to take as a slight shift in direction displays a new colour or plane

Experience

Born into a pioneering opal family , now 48 yrs old , visited every opal field in australia, seen some of the finest stones ever produced . Sold high quality gems to japanese collectors and europeans and Americans
Have an incredible photogallery of opals ...try me !
