The term 14KP stands for "karat plumb" gold---meaning exactly14K....no more, no less. KP does NOT mean plated. It is solid 14K gold. Karat weights are usually determined with… a small, fractionalvariance allowed by law. Karat gold which has NO fractionalvariance at all is called "plumb" gold -- typically identified witha "KP" hallmark. 14K P means Plumb Gold not Plate Gold. "PLUMB GOLD A term used to describe gold jewelry that contains theprecise amount of gold in the alloy that the Karat mark indicates.In the past an item marked 14Kt could legally have been 13.5 karatand still considered 14K. Today an item marked 14k must be at least14 of 24 parts fine gold and is considered plumb gold. In someinstances manufacturers have marked their jewelry 14KP meaningplumb, but inadvertently have confused the public that believed the14KP mark meant gold plated. "
It might be solid gold, but it might not be. Sometimes there is aletter that identifies the maker, and sometimes this comes afterthe 14K mark. There is always a space between …the 14K mark and themaker's mark and the maker's mark is often a different style oflettering than the 14K. On the other hand, rings that are not solid gold, but are goldplated will often have something like 14KP or 14KGP which standsfor 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 itout on google or with any jeweler. KGP is plate and RGP is plate.NOT KP
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.
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.
