Please translate these symbols into English.

I think it is a designation of gold purity but am not for certain.

Not a gold designation, but likely a female person name.

Chan May Tein

Is that on a jewelry of some form?

...on a jewelry


Yes, it is stamped on a gold necklace. I was hoping to determine the karat rating of this piece since no other writing appears anywhere on it.

It would have been helpful to know this data since I know that any producer of gold jewelry pieces will 'NEVER' produce a piece of jewelry with a higher karat gold % than what the karat stamp designates. Anything to the contrary would cause a manufacturer of the gold piece to lose $...

A karat stamp always gives me a point of reference to begin the scratch test with the appropriate mixture of nitric/muriatic acid etc.

B/t/w assuming a long shot that this name originated in the same geographic location where the miners extracted the gold from the ground, what would be the country with the greatest probability of meeting that criteria? This type of information could assist me to more rapidly associate foreign numbers with 10k, 14k, 18k, 22k or even pure gold @ 24k etc.

They are Chinese characters, and Chinese gold jewelry is often 24k. Although if the color is accurate, it doesn't look yellow enough to be 24k. Probably best just to test it.

Chinese like their gold to be pure, there's a possibility that somewhere else will be a tiny stamp hidden. The weight probably give you some clue whether is pure gold or not.

I know sometime the stamp is near the W shape clasp, if its the older traditional type.

What would be the Chinese symbol for 24K and/or 22K? I ask this because I know there are several dialects in China so I want to get the correct letter and visual for the dialect that most likely would be producing these types of jewelry.

It will at least included this word jin for gold. If you find it, some other character(s) should be before it.

There are many Chinese dialects, but they all have the same written language.
