Markings on the inside of a gold ring indicate many things. Thenumber markings could tell the owner how much gold is actually inthe ring. for example 14k means 14 karats. The letter could tellthe owner if it is gold plating, or gold filling. Sometimes, theseletters and numbers are a combination of r…ing size and the creatorsmark. ( Full Answer )
It's the purity of the gold, as a decimal fraction. .9999 means the ring is 99.99% pure. That surprises me a bit, though, because jewelry is normally not made of gold that fine because it would be too soft for normal wearing.
I have an old gold ring with markings CG&S - CROWN - 22 -ANCHOR - N I know the ring was made by Charles Green and it is 22 carat goldbut I am unsure of the rest. Can someone please help
Your ring was probably made in England or another country that doesn't use our standards. In USA we mark items with KT such as 18KT. Your ring is probably 22KT gold. it is gold plated sterling silver In the UK we do not use 925 on gold or silver. We use a 'Hallmark' that is for every area of the U…K from which it was made. This is helpful when 'pricing' antiques as the hallmark identifies the area, manufacturer and era from which it originated. ( Full Answer )

It means that the ring was hallmarked in Birmingham, UK. You can see more detail here. http://www.gold-traders.co.uk/news/2008/01/simple-gold-hallmark-guide.html
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 ( Full Answer )
This means that it is unlikely to be solid gold, most likely just plated. A stamp of 925 means that it is made predominantly of 92.5% silver. If you have purchased this under the pretence it was silver I suggest you get it independantly checked at any jewellers and then return the item as soon as po…ssible! ( Full Answer )
'25' means that it twenty-five karat gold. -Jonhis NO!!!! Pure gold by definition can only be UP TO 24 karat. The karat marking on an item is how many parts out of 24 is pure gold, the rest being alloy mix. Thus a 14 karat item is 14 parts PURE gold and 10 parts alloy ( copper, zinc, silver , or… nickle) . A 14 karat ,14k item is 58.5% pure gold ( 14 divided by 24) . 25 on an item has to be something else, for .25 meaning 1/4 diamond or a style number , etc ( Full Answer )
I can only think it might be the finger size It sounds more like a hallmark stamp of the maker/company.
14 k = how good the gold is - 10k not as pure - 24k Best there is. . K = karat. (for diamonds it's spelled carat) . GP = gold plated - Gold coating on outside of another metal - (like painting a bottle cap with gold) . hope that helps ya.

3 Digit numbers hallmarked on precious metal rings indicate the fineness or caratage (ct) of the metal. There is not a fineness value for 795, as it does not exist, to my knowledge, in the UK or US, and I'm pretty sure nowhere else in the world either. The Fineness marks in the UK are as follows:… 375 = 9ct 750 = 18ct 916 = 21ct 999 = 24ct or pure. The fineness in the US is as follows: 417 = 10ct 585 = 14ct 750 = 18ct 916 = 22ct 999 = 24ct or pure.

It could mean someone's first letter of there first and last name. Or maybe a school.
It typically means two things. First, the ring was probably made before the stamp act of 1906 which regulated, among other things, what jewelers could and couldn't hallmark on their wares. Second, assuming the piece is US made, it would mean the ring is of at least (and quite likely) 10k gold. This …standard has long been the minimum standard considered as "solid gold" in the States. The UK has a lover 9ct standard and some European countries (ie Italy) had 8ct up until the 1990s when they standardized their marking system. Pete ( Full Answer )

It means that your ring was made by the company MWI out of 14 karat gold.
It usually reads 585 which is 14kt gold. They are allowed a little variance so you probably have 14kt gold at .599 (or a messed up .589 (more likely)) purity.
It is the value addition because of the wastage incurred in making of the gold jewellery
