Is it unusual for a jeweler to stamp a piece of jewelry they did not make? I sent a piece of jewelry to a jeweler to take a look at. They did not need to do anything to the jewelry at all, but they did return it polished and stamped with their own stamp (!).

That would be wrong and worth suing over if the piece was of high value.

Are you sure it's the same ring? Maybe they did the ole switcheroo.

I'd be talking to them right now or a lawyer if it was very valuable.

nah, it wasn't financially valuable
yes, i am wondering if they may have mistakenly given me another ring, it seems about the same weight and the right size/width, so I doubt the value of the ring would be different.

What is on the stamp?? I "assume" that's just a compulsory mark. ( metal purity/carat )
Would you post a picture, perhaps??

I have also seen jewlers put their individual mark on an item that they did an appraisal on that didnl;t have any marks. So, I agree what mark did they put on the item?

I don't think I can do the picture, but it's the initials of the company and a little leaf or something (their logo). I didn't know companies put stamps on when appraising--although that's not what it was for. I just gave it to them to help match it to another piece. It's a reputable company out of state.
