What does FR 14K on a ring mean?

Greg Weiss. , Graduate Gemologist · Author has 1.1K answers and 1.9M answer views. 14K means the metal the ring is made from is 14 Karat gold. Pure gold is 24 Karat gold (100%). All other gold is alloyed with other metals for strength since 24 Karat gold is very soft and ductile.

Is 14kt GE worth anything?

The remaining metal is generally not really worth anything. If a ring says something like 14K GE or 14K HGE, that is GOLD ELECTROPLATE, and HEAVY GOLD ELECTROPLATE respectively. GF means gold filled. So theoretically if the piece was 14K GF 1/10 and it weighs 10 grams, there would be one gram of 14K gold there.

What does Sta mean on jewelry?

These stamps stand for sterling silver. This means the piece of jewelry should be 92.5% pure silver mixed with another metal, usually copper. Silver on its own is very soft and needs another metal added to make solid jewelry.

What do gold nanoparticles look like?

The 15 nm gold nanoparticles look like a red solution, and the particles are far too small to see with the naked eye. The particles are stabilised in solution because they are surrounded by citrate anions, and therefore repel each other electrostatically.

What is the origin of the gold nanoparticles color?

Optical & Electronic Properties of Gold Nanoparticles For small (~30 nm) monodisperse gold nanoparticles, the surface plasmon resonance phenomenon causes an absorption of light in the blue-green portion of the spectrum (~450 nm) while red light (~700 nm) is reflected, yielding a rich red color.

Is 14K eg real gold?

14K gold is definitely real gold. Contrary to popular belief, almost no jewelry (and certainly no engagement rings, earrings or other pieces that are worn frequently) are made using 100% pure, 24K gold. The reason for this is simple: pure, 24K gold is extremely soft, making it easy to scratch, warp and bend.
