Jewelry Markings

Does anyone have a list for Jewelry Markings?

I understand a little bit - 18k is 75% pure gold 18/24 = 0.750
Sterling silver is marked 925. Sterling is 92.5% pure silver

But what about other marks for instance what would you say 10K CI is?
or what about 18kGE

Trying to be as smart as you fellows/ladies on this forum.

Here is a list of most common marks used in the U.S.
Sometimes people have there initials engraved in the ring and look like a mark of somekind.
There are hundreds of hallmarks that companies use to identify there jewelry, the most common one we all know is Tiffany& Co. marked in there Silver pieces.
I hope this is some help. HH

Means Gold electroplate or Heavy Gold Electroplate. Basically it's junk and plated gold. The letter P after the karat marking means Plumb. That means that a ring marked 10KP is at LEAST 10K, but maybe a little better. Not familiar with the other, maybe a makers mark of some sort.
