A Jewelers Stamp of "FAS" .. Can You Tell Me Who It Is?

I'm from Connecticut originally and I have 2 pair of earrings that belonged to my great grandmother that my grandmother gave to me, so they are over 148 years old. One pair has marcasite and sterling silver, and one pair has marcasite and garnets, both in pristine condition. The stamps on the back of the earrings has 925 for sterling and also "FAS". The earrings are unique in the way they were made, but I'd also like to find out who the "FAS" stamp belongs to. Could you tell me who the stamp belongs to? Thanks!

 FAS on sterling seems to come from Italy. Some believe it is only a newer mark, others have seen it on very old items. Chances are you have Italian pieces there. :) GOOD LUCK!~


FAS is a very common Italian mark, I think it is newer mass produced stuff. I bought a sterling piece with the FAS 925 mark. I've even seen FAS on what appeared to be older pieces.
