15ct gold was the Victorian favourite (it has a gold content of 625 parts per 1000 or 62.5% gold). Up to 1854 the legal standards for gold were 18ct and 22ct. In 1854 these standards were broadened with 15ct, 12ct and 9ct.Before 1854 there were no 9ct, 12ct or 15ct Gold marked British Jewelry. 12 ct and 15 ct were discontinued in 1932 in Britain when the 14ct standard was introduced.
A beautiful and fabulously wearable antique cameo ring!
