I just received my 3 gold beads I recently purchased from an e-bay seller.

All of them have a stamp.....18k (in really small print) and LAA (in much bigger print)

Does that sound genuine to you? I have never seen them in person so I don't know what the stamps should look like....someone here is selling a gold lucky knot and her pic shows 750 LAA in quite similar size print.

So now I'm freaking out....is that what a lucky knot should have stamped??
Can anyone tell me if the stamps vary...and if what I wrote sounds like something you have also.
I'm so worried Sad

thank you so much for responding trollcat Smile
Is the 18k much smaller than LAA on yours?


I have 3 other gold beads purchased for LD's and in all of them the 18k and LAA are way fainter and both are same size.....what raised the flag is that in all these 3 i just got the 18k is way smaller and the stamps are deep!

I had a look at my lucky knot (from an authorized dealer) and the 18K is indeed smaller than the LAA. The 18K is for beads sold in North America so it may have been added separately to their stock.

Trollgirly the stamp on my Lucky Lnot looks exactly like yours and I do mean exactly. I looked at the stamps on my gold Brew of the Moor, Spot, Royal and Wine Harvest and they all look exactly like yours. I think you are good!

omg...thank you so much....i was so worried....

I wonder why my older gold beads all look different than these 3....gold lady bug was bought at a store in Rochester....gold heart at trollfest...and triangles was from BeadzandBags.....all those three look the same as eachother with 18k and LAA faint and both being same exact size...


Now these 3 are completely different than my old ones, but exactly same as one another....so bizzare!!!

750 LAA is stamped on gold beads that are bought in Europe

Prices are higher in Europe.

I bought a heart with pink sapphires on ebay last year.It was stamped 18K LAA on it,I haven't seen these stamps before. All my gold beads stamped 750 LAA, quite anxious.Because the stamp of K18 and 750 means OK but some of 18K stands for fake in Japan. Sad

So I mailed about it TB HQ with picture.Reply was simple.
"According to the stamp,on the US market they have to put on 18K on the bead for selling" She Judged my bead was authentic.I didn't know the stamp was different depending on the countries. Embarassed If you are still worried,send the picture to HQ.

Thank you so much everyone Smile
I think they are ok....they are nice and heavy, they don't feel light or hollow. They look real to me with all their perfect details in design....

It wasn't really as much the lack of 750....but the fact that 18k was way smaller than LAA, when in all my previous beads the 18k and LAA are the same size and the stamp is light, while these stamps are deep.

I would still love to see some of your stamps of same beads....only if yours are stamped with 18k...so i can compare

If you like what you see I can tell you which seller it is...he has more and his prices are incredible.
I paid about the price for just the bear, for all 3 gold beads Smile + silver earings and little princes.

Here is a thread Lecohen started regarding this seller Smile
https://www.beadthrilled.com/t7291-ebay-seller-mrsales011105

You can just contact him on e-bay and he will send you a list with what he has left...the list includes prices....
He answered all my questions and I had a milion...believe me...didn't get frastruated...he was prompt...shipping was fast and he charged me exactly what he paid.
I have to say that I would definitely buy from him again..
