    14K "fg" - SOLVED

    Hello, Found a gold wedding band and it was stamped 14k FG. I have not been able to definitively been able to find out what the "FG" stands for. I have been told among other things that it stands for "fine gold", "filled gold" and or the jewelers ID mark. Does anyone know for sure?
    Thanks in advance, glory-days

    I think I know the mark you're talking about. Is it a capital F and then a funky-looking angular G?
    We all know there's no such thing as a "hunted out" location. Let's stop using that phrase to describe a park out of which you just dug a pile of coins! Obviously that particular place wasn't "hunted out", right?

    Does it look like the FG in the white gold ring in the first photo of this post?

    We need a photo to give you a confident answer.
    But I can say this:
    Gold that is not solid is normally marked GF (Gold Filled), HGE (Heavy Gold Electroplate), HGEP (Heavy Gold Electro Plate), E (Eletroplate), GE (Gold Electroplate). It isn’t marked FG as for it purity or as for it being plated. I will take a guess without seeing it and say that the FG stand for the makers Initials, or the Manufacture’s logo.

    You're right, Ant. I have the exact same FG inside my wedding band and I can assure you that is doest not stand for filled gold, not at the price I paid for it!

    af1733, It is exactly like that mark. Capital F and the funky G. It even has the little "c" (COPYRIGHT?) inside the circle between the 14k and the "FG". Appreciate anymore info. Thanks, glory-days

    That's the exact same way my band is set up, 14K circle c and FG. I'm sure it's referring to the designer or manufacturer. Nice find!!
