Can you tell me what the g14ks marking means?

I have 2 pieces of jewelry with this marking.


Answer by  knowitall39 (475)

It means that the jewelry is 14 karat gold. The karat system is a weigh of evaluating gold jewelery. 14 karat is a medium grade quality, excellent for everyday wear because it is durable. Sometimes if jewelry is small, jewelry kind of squish the grade label together hence the "g14ks" marking.

G14ks means tht the jewelry you have with this marking is 14 karat gold. 14kt gold is 58. 5 % pure gold.


Answer by  mightyspidey (1080)

The g refers to gold and the ks refers to carats. The 14 is for the number of carats. So all together, you have 14 carat gold

No, I can't tell you what that means because I am not a jeweler and i have not studied jewelry markings.


Answer by  whoareyou (3483)

g14ks in the jewelry world translates to Gold, 14 karats. Meaning, that the two items of jewelry you have with these particular markings are real gold, and they are 14karats, which is the standard for real gold.

I used to auction vintage jewelry and I don't recall seeing those particular marks. I believe it means 14 kt gold and the ks is probably a jeweler's mark.
