Period: c. late 1800s-early 1900s; Victorian/post-Victorian
Marks: the ring is stamped “14KH” inside the shank; while we’ve encountered similar “#KH” stamps in the past, we’ve yet to establish the mark’s literal meaning. It may be a maker’s mark, or it could be an outdated stamp for denoting measured and verified gold karat percentage. Regardless, our own acid testing confirms the 14K makeup of the piece.
