.925 is the stamp for sterling silver.
It is .925% silver and .075% copper or nickel or whatever master alloy mix they use.
if it says .999 it is fine silver
Not sure what FAS means but I'm going to stick around to find out.
I've done a search on the internet, but so far, no luck. Thanks for your reply. I'll be keeping an eye on this post. Hopefully someone can answer the FAS question:)
I suspect it is the hallmark of the maker in Italy. All silver coming out of Italy must be hallmarked
Maybe those are the initials of the maker. Just a guess :o)
Welcome... I should know the answer for that but I can't put my finger on it.
my bet is with starshine, that it's the mark of the maker.
I have rings like that.
