925 SU mark

Postby SHERRY » Thu Jan 17, 2008 3:20 pm

I have seen a 925 SU mark on several pieces of jewelry-all from different countries (Italy, Mexico, Thailand...). I have some earrings with this mark, but they are so light weight that I doubt they're sterling. Could the SU be indicative of some type of silverplate?

If it's the SU in a circle mark, believe it's a distributer or importer.
Have not been able to identify who that was.

Don't think it indicates silverplate because I've seen this mark on sterling silver pieces made in Taxco Mexico.

Thanks, Pat and yes the SU is inside a circle. I'll bet you're right about it being an importer or distributor mark since I've seen it on jewelry from several different countries. I appreciate you taking the time! ~Sherry

Think it might have been the mark for "Silver Unlimited", a now defunct sort of home shopping network jewelry supplier that was internet based.

Thanks, Tom. Hmmm...In my searching I ran across quite a few eBay auctions that listed jewely w/ this same mark as vintage, but of course they may have been incorrect in their assessment. Because of this I thought the mark might be from a company that had been around for awhile. I don't believe my earrings are vintage though, and did not list them as such. Appreciate your response! ~Sherry
