14KF Marking... What does it mean?

I have a mens wedding band that has 14KF marked in it. I've received 2 different answers... What does this mean? 14K Gold Filled.... Or 14K Fine?? What does 14K Fine mean?
Thanks

14KF Marking... What does it mean?

in reply to
If it was gold filled, it usually says 14 k 1/20 GF...meaning it has one twentieth of gold in the ring..never saw a gold filled ring marked that way.Are you sure that F is not a P? that would be the vintage marking of Plumb, meaning the ring meets the standards set for 14 kt gold. Dee

thanks Dee,

It's a F for sure.... I took it to a local jeweler today and they said the F was part of the hallmarking that the ring is 14K...... I'm going to get a second opinion but sounds like the ring is 14K gold.

Yes, F is probably just a mgfr's stamp. D.

Make sure it does not say 14KP Which Means Plumb.... Smiley Happy Usually It would say 14 KGFE Just a thought.... ---- Smiley Wink ---Brizz

In case anyone is still wondering...I found out today that jewelry stamped 14kf with a small triangle next to it is real 14k gold. The "F" and the triangle is the Friedman's Inc. hallmark. If you are still not sure, take the item to a jeweler and have them run an acid test.

Regardless of any information we may be able to give you here about the stamping, always keep in mind that stamps have been faked for centuries.

I wish had a dollar each of the gold plated chains (marked 14K) that I have encountered over the years!

Before you list it on eBay or offer it for sale anywhere else, you should have it tested for gold, as suggested in the previous post. You are responsible for the gold content, regardless of whether it is stamped or not!

Yes, it should be tested if there is any doubt. All that a 14kf stamp means is that somebody stamped it with a stamp that said 14kf. It may have little to do with the actual metal content. Best regards, Lee
