My engagement ring is a custom ring done in white gold but it doesn’t have a stamp either. Idk maybe it’s because we have custom rings? I would ask them just to be sure but i doubt it will make a difference when getting it insured because an appraiser will be able to tell what type of metal it is!

I have no idea but thought I would add that my ring is custom as well but white gold and also doesn’t have a stamp

Take it to your jeweller and get it looked at. You can ususally tell platinum anyway because its quite a heavy metal. But yes, it will be difficult to insure it if you dont know the purity of the metal.

I’m a jewelry designer for a small independant store and we don’t stamp our rings unless our customers request it. As long as you have an appraisal stating the metal used in the ring (which the jeweler can or should provide) you shouldn’t have any problem insuring it.

Over time a lot of stamps end up fading out with wear, sizings, engravings etc anyway!

My platinum ring is stamped “PT 950”.

I thought there was some sort of law about stamping jewelry, but I could be wrong.

Not sure if you saw my response on your other thread so I’ll just repost here:

I had mine custom made and it’s not stamped inside (it’s 19k white gold).  However, it did come with the certification/GIA thingy (I don’t know what it’s called, I’m sorry) and it states the diamond specs, the metal used, the value, and includes a picture of the ring.

I went to a small independent jeweler and I didn’t get a stamp.  But when I got it appraised for insurance purposes, they were able to verify what metal was used.

My jeweler did not stamp my custom 14K wedding band but I noticed before I left the shop. The sales associate brought it to the back and they engraved 14K onto it since at that point it could no longer be stamped. She said it isn’t needed to prove the value of the ring since it can be tested. However I wanted it in there for ease of identification…it’s been helpful to me that old rings from my grandparents are marked so I know what is costume versus real jewelry.

I know thisthread is a bit old but I thought I would ask.  My ring was costume made to be a replica of a ring I really wantedbut could not afford.  It is stamped 14k.  It is white gold with 10 diamonds on the band and a center stone of 1ct.  It also has collar with diamonds in it going around the base of the diamond.  Now I never noticed it and don’t truly know the answer, but my sister was”examining” it and noticed that the 14k stamp was the only one.  Should it have a stamp that is meant for the diamond?
