By the way, your tos stating that you dont take returns means absolutely nothing if the buyer pays with Paypal, PP says you do take returns. Thats a real turn off for any prospective bidders.

You also are very responsible if the buyer does not purchase insurance and the item is lost or damaged in shipment. Paypal will refund the buyer in a heartbeat,insurance is to protect you, not your buyer, PP is the buyers insurance.

Hi Mommy
Here in Switzerland the AKstands for Armin Kurz one of the top jewelry sellers. The only problem is he usually only works in 18k gold. Is it possible to post a picture? I can then compare with the stamp on one of the several Kurz items that I own. Hope this helps. Have a great day! European18ktgoldjewelery

my understanding is that AK is Turkish mark for Gold plated.

AK is the manufacturer's stamp, and it stands for Atasay Kuyumculuk, one of the leading jewelry manufacturers in Turkey. It has nothing to do with gold plating.

That is correct.. This company has exported tons of 14 karat gold jewelry to the US in the recent past. Usually, the stamp is "AK Turkey 14Kt", not necessarily in that order.
