Pics of the item and the mark are needed to even make a guess.

To the above poster, what the OP was confused about is the K after the 925.  The K is usually used only on gold jewelry.


 


Confused me too, so I did a search.  Now I am more confused.  Got so many different answers.


 


From what I can see, the 925 K is used alot on handmade jewelry.  Found a few sites selling it.  But I found a couple referring to it as silver dipped in gold, so I am not positive.  But I am seeing that hallmark, so it does exist.  Found a few pieces on (b)etsy.


 


Pictures of the OP's piece with a clear one of the hallmark will enable one of us to give them a more definitive answer.

I have a sterling ring with onyx and mother of pearl with 925K and it really looks like Kabana style.

It might be better if you start your own post, this original post is almost 4 years old.
