What does this cursive V mark on my necklaces mean?
September 6, 2014 6:03 PM   Subscribe

I bought a couple necklaces at an estate sale. They are vermeil (gold plating over sterling silver) and as such bear 925 Italy marks on the clasps, and also have a cursive V that in a stretch could perhaps be read as a 6V or a GV but really just looks to me like a cursive V. I figure it's either the maker (and if so, does anyone know what company?) or it's a code I don't yet know for the amount/quality of gold used or perhaps it literally stands for vermeil. Google unhelpfully keeps offering initial necklaces of the letter V.

Perhaps a hallmark of some sort might set the Googling in the right direction?

Could it be a Greek letter like a ν or a γ or otherwise be from a non-Latin alphabet?
