    Hi everyone. I've been meaning to post this... this ring belonged to my grandmother. It was believed to be fake, both the diamonds and the gold. I believe that it is genuine, and that the 14KP stands for "plumb" not "plated". What does everyone here think?

    Good night!

      I can't tell you how many pieces of gold I've found for cheap because the seller thought the P stood for "plate." In the 70's and 80's when gold was high, there was a problem with lowballing karatage, so plumb was used, which was sort of like a guarantee. That's the story I always heard

      I think what a lucky grandmother you had & to think you now have the pleasure of owning it.

      Hi,
      I know this is an old thread but I am looking to find who makes this hallmark. I have a ring with the same mark and cannot find any information anywhere. Any info would help, your ring is the first thing I've found after almost a year of searching.
      Thank you,
      Melissa
