Thanks for the feedback!
The term 14KP stands for "karat plumb" gold---meaning exactly 14K....no more, no less. KP does NOT mean plated. It is solid 14K gold. Karat weights are usual…ly determined with a small, fractional variance allowed by law. Karat gold which has NO fractional variance at all is called "plumb" gold -- typically identified with a "KP" hallmark. 14K P means Plumb Gold not Plate Gold. "PLUMB GOLD A term used to describe gold jewelry that contains the precise amount of gold in the alloy that the Karat mark indicates. In the past an item marked 14Kt could legally have been 13.5 karat and still considered 14K. Today an item marked 14k must be at least 14 of 24 parts fine gold and is considered plumb gold. In some instances manufacturers have marked their jewelry 14KP meaning plumb, but inadvertently have confused the public that believed the 14KP mark meant gold plated. "
I had a similar issue several years ago and finally had to take the ring to a jeweler. 682, or any 3 digit number stamped on a gold or silver ring, refers the purity of th…e metal. So in your case, .682 fine gold or 14k gold.
The 14K P means "Karat Plumb" which is solid 14K gold. The "FG" stands for Frederick Goldman, who founded Frederick Goldman Inc. in 1948 in New York City. Frederlck Goldman ha…s been creating amazing bridal rings since 1948. The newer rings have a copyright stamp next to the "FG". And NO, the FG never stands for filled gold.
14K on a white gold ring means that the ring is 14 karat. I1 is used to alert you to the stone's clarity.
The IBG in your ring means it was made by the I. B. Goodman Company in Newport, Kentucky in the United States.
A lot of ppl are asking this question - if the G in the FG is kind of angular, it is the Trademark for Fredrick Goldman, the manufacturer of the ring.
14K is the content of gold in the item, and SD is most likely the initials of the ring's maker.
Not sure if the "p" was a slip in the typing but as for the 14k, I can help out there. The k would signify carat - 24 carat gold is pure gold but is very soft. So other metals… are mixed into the gold to help harden it and prolong its life. Most likely the number will be stamped onto some part of the jewellery. This comes mainly in 9k and 18k but in Asia 14k is common as well. 9k would be the hardest and most durable whereas the 18 would be the most expensive. 14k can also be found on American gold as well as 10k etc, in the UK you get 9ct 15ct 18ct etc See related link below.
DC stands for Diamond Cut.
It's most likely the designer's initials.
It means that the item is gold and the purity of the gold is 14 parts out of 24 pure gold or about 58.5% pure gold
14 k gold designed and made by hubertus von skal,
It might be solid gold, but it might not be. Sometimes there is a letter that identifies the maker, and sometimes this comes after the 14K mark. There is always a space be…tween the 14K mark and the maker's mark and the maker's mark is often a different style of lettering than the 14K. On the other hand, rings that are not solid gold, but are gold plated will often have something like 14KP or 14KGP which stands for 14K plate or gold plated. A professional jeweler can test it for you. Good luck! Update: 14KP does NOT mean Plate, it mean Plum or pure...check it out on google or with any jeweler. KGP is plate and RGP is plate. NOT KP
14k is the purity of the gold. CKG is the manufacturer of the ring
14K means 14 karat gold. Pure gold is 24K. So 14K gold is a little over 50 percent pure gold and some other metal. A106 is probably a manufacturing number.
