I dug this cross on Saturday and I'm wondering what this stamp means. My best guess is that the clasp or loop is 925 sterling but the cross itself may be silver plated? I thought it would be a simple Google search but it hasn't been.

Thanks

I would think the whole thing is sterling and the initials are a makers mark, or the owners initials.

It's a makers mark. Not Italian made. A quick search reveals many items with this mark, some also have Thailand stamped on them.

I just saw this while getting ready to ask a question...Sorry for the delay.

I apologize.. I guess I wasn't clear in my wording...TORSADE means Twisted in Italian. Not 'Made in Italy'. The Wiring is Twisted. They are hand made Rosaries like most Rosaries are. Most Rosary Beads are Manufactured... Not All.

Im attaching a pic of an OBJ Rosary.. There are many different types, styles and pricing of OBJ Rosaries.

I collect Old Rosaries, Old Crucifixes and Old Religious Medalions and if you happen upon an old Rosary with skulls... those can be very valuable. The style and material used of the Crucifix can also determine value as can what the Beads and Mysteries are made of as well as where it was made on the Old Rosaries.

I'm not a practicing Catholic but I was baptized one, lol. Unless they are the real cheap plastic ones, I usually buy rosaries and religious medallions when I see them. I've sold a few sterling ones over the years. I have a large Alabaster wall rosary for sale right now on ebay. https://www.ebay.com/itm/123181229762
I buy religious items from all different religions and faiths when I come across something that looks sale worthy. I'm not predjudiced, lol. Heck, Satanism Witchcraft and Demonology included. I don't believe in that hocus pocus anyway.

HA... Your Braver than me...I stay away from the Satanic stuff... To each their own but I'm not bringing it home with me!

Other religions, yes... and I'm like you, if it's something that should be saved for folks that appreciate the history of it I'll buy things and give it to friends.

I like the Alabaster Wall Rosaries...Jade too.

PM me if you run across any old Rosaries, Medallions or Crucifixes. If it's something I don't have I usually buy them.

Thanks,
Kace
