Help w/ French Bracelet maker's mark

Postby NancyCaroline » Fri Dec 11, 2020 9:07 pm

Hi,
Hoping someone might be able to help w/ the maker's mark on this French sterling bracelet...these are the very best photos I've been able to get so this is likely a long shot. Thanks for looking:)

Hi,
Maker`s mark is too small to identify. If you could tell us the initials.
The crab marks guarantee a minimum fineness of 800; the fineness can be anywhere between 800 and 950. The silver standard for smalls is not precisely controlled because those objects are small and light.
In other words, it can be sterling (.925) but also anything between 800 and 950.

Regards

A lot of people have pretty good success at taking an image of the mark through a magnifying glass, so you might try that. Great looking bracelet.

Hi & Happy Holidays!!
I've worked on the photos on this teeny maker's mark. Hoping photos a bit clearer. To my eye mark appears to be characters / symbols
I truly cannot identify the first, the middle a T (or a cross), the third an I.
Thanks for looking,
Nancy
