925 Gold?

Answer

The 925 stamp on many pieces of gold jewelry means that the piece is made of of 92.5 percent pure gold and usually, sterling silver is what compromises the rest of the piece. The 925 stamp on Italian gold means that it is comprised of 92.5 percent sterling silver and is usually just gold plated. The only way to estimate the value of the gold plating is to find out what type of gold was used in the plating process. Usually, this can only be determined by inquiring at the point of purchase about the grade of the gold usually used by them to plate the jewelry.
