Maybe that is not a 7 and we have 14K?

I did use a scratch / acid test kit last night on the ring. Tested out as 14K, so maybe you are right , still no clue why it looks like a 7 tho here =)

Thats correct.... 14k size 7... or its could be a "style" number... jewelry "design" number.. etc.
Test for karat... and measure for size...to tell

Sorry took me a while to get back here when they sized my ring up they made it out as size 7 I believe. Think you guys are all dead on for 147 meaning 14k size 7.

Thanks for all the replies too !!
