I’ve been trying to track down the laws/rules around using a stamp
and marking the quality for a piece. I’ve hunted through the forums
and haven’t seen anything definitive and have asked a few lawyers
(they weren’t jewelry specific attorneys though and weren’t spending

can’t even clearly state that something is sterling or 14k, etc while
selling (i.e. can’t say it on the invoice) unless I put a quality and
therefore maker’s stamp on the piece. Just looking for some direction
on resources or folks that can answer these as well.
In short, we have some pieces but don’t have a stamp yet defined and
want to know what restriction exists if it’s not stamped with our
