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 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! :icon_jokercolor:

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!!
