What Does 14k Gp Mean?

14k GP is a shorthand for 14 karat gold, which is the highest quality of gold that can be used in jewelry. It’s often used in high-end jewelry and watches because it’s durable, doesn’t tarnish easily and has a beautiful luster.

The term “GP” was originally an abbreviation for “good polish,” which referred to the high quality of the metal used to make a piece of jewelry. Today, 14k GP is still considered to be high quality, but it’s not as common as 10k GP because it’s more expensive.

14k GP is actually composed of about 58% gold and 42% other metals. These other metals include copper, silver and zinc — all of which contribute strength to the alloy.

Because 14k GP is so strong, it typically doesn’t need any special care other than regular cleaning with warm water and soap or jewelry cleaner (or even polishing cloth).
