What do the numbers on jewelry mean?

Answer

There can be many number markings on jewelry and some are easy to understand and some are not so much. For instance, a marking of 14k is easily understandable to mean the jewelry is made of 14 karat gold. But a marking of 750 is less understood but actually means it is made of 18 karat gold or higher. The best way to find out is to look it up online or ask your local jeweler.

The numbers on jewelry could be the manufacturer's number or the lot number. I know on rings it has what type of gold it is; such as 14k gold and whatnot.
