What does 14k se mean?
Answer: the S.E stand for 14k on gold gold.
Carat weight can be written in a number of different ways. Each manufacturer is different and can use different terminology. Take a look at the chart below and then we’ll talk about them.
To explain the numbers above a little bit better, they are actually percentages of that particular metal that are mixed with other alloys.
For example, 14k gold is 58.5% Gold and the rest are alloys mixed in with it (like silver and copper to make it more durable).
So .585 means 58.5% or 14k gold.
What does 14K KC mean?

Is it real gold if it is stamped 14k Italy?
You never really know for sure if it is real gold or not. You can buy an acid kit on Amazon for cheap. It’ll let you test the different karats; 10k/14k/18k/22k/silver/platinum. Using a magnet isn’t reliable because there are metals that aren’t precious metals that are also not magnetic.
It might seem weird, but sometimes I’ll sniff the metal. Gold shouldn’t have a smell to it. Unless something was spilled on it or anything of that nature. You know that smell when you handle a lot of coins and then your hand has that metallic smell? That’s what you want to avoid.
The reason it says “14k Italy” is because years ago the United States used to let manufacturers get away with making gold under 14k purity (58.5% gold), but still stamp it 14k. BUT, if you bought genuine jewelry that said “14k Italy” you knew it was true 58.5% gold, or 14k.
The U.S. manufacturers can no longer do this, so don’t worry about that. I manage a pawnshop, so we do take in precious metals on a daily basis.
What does 14k SE mean?
First let’s clarify what carat of gold is. Pure gold is 24 karats and even though it can’t be 100% pure due to impurigications, it’s close enough 99.99%. 18K gold is 75% pure gold and 25% other metals such as copper, silver and etc. 14k gold is 58.5% pure gold.
Gold purity used in Jewellery differs from region to region. In Southern Europe Italy, Spain and France would use 18k gold for Jewellery which is a great hardness to make Jewellery. But India prefers 22k or U.K. would use 9k. However 14k is widely accepted globally because it’s cheaper than 18k but much better than 9k.
When you see the 14k Italy stamp, it should mean it’s 14k (58.5%) pure gold and made in Italy (Italy is one of the top Jewellery exporters in the world, however they tend to import Jewellery with the stamp and re-export it) Jewellery.
So the simple answer to your question is yes it’s gold unless someone made fake Jewellery and stamped it. That’s also a possibility but unlikely.
The most common marks or trademark stamps are used to identify things like:
Metals, carat weights, manufacturer, tradeMarks, jeweler, or designer.
The mark that is the most important is the metal stamp or karat weight of the metal.
P.S. I also have an ENORMOUS list of unidentified stamps as well: unidentified stamps inside rings (If you know any, help me out and drop me a line)
If you look inside the shank of your ring (the band on the bottom or side), you’ll usually see the karat stamp. More than likely it will be shown as 10k, 14k, 18k, or Plat.
These are the most common metals and most common markings. But you’ll also run across titanium, stainless steel, tungsten, sterling silver, and even palladium (plus some other obscure metals, like those used in class rings – Lustrium, lLazon, Celestrium?).
