14k Ring Worth
The 14 Karat Gold Melt Value Calculator, available below, can figure the total gold value of 14K gold items, measured by the weight unit of your choice. The gold value is calculated based on the total amount of actual gold content, not including any other metals used in making 14K gold alloy. The 14K gold calculator will only show what the gold is worth (intrinsic value), and not any collectible value of your 14K gold items.

I have a vintage stamped “Tiffany & Co.14k” gold link 20″ chain, which was bought at the NY flag store and given to my brother in the 1960s. It also has a locking gold clasp marked “14k.” The 43 links are heavy, open oblongs, ca. 1.2 cm x .5 cm. Unfortunately, I haven’t yet had it weighed or even taken it to a jeweler. I’m interested in selling the chain. I can email you photos. Kind thanks for any info you can offer.

Hi Faith, thanks for commenting. It sounds like you have a 14k gold ring there, but without seeing it we can’t say for sure. If you are in the Sacramento area, feel free to bring the ring by the shop. Otherwise, you can email us some pictures, and we can do our best from that.

Hi Tania, thanks for commenting. We would be happy to give you an estimate of how much your jewelry is worth. If you are in the Sacramento area, it’s always best if you can stop by the shop so we can see it in person. If not, feel free to take some photos of the jewelry and email them to us along with any details you have like gram weights, metal type (14k, Silver, Platinum, etc), diamond or gemstone weights and qualities, etc.

Hi Dawn, what a bummer! We have been able to fix some severly damaged rings in the past, but we would really need to see it in person to know for sure if it’s fixable. Your diamonds are most likely ok though, and if it turns out that the ring is too far gone, we could always melt the gold and remake the ring with your same diamonds. Hopefully that helps, and we wish you the best with your ring.

If you have a one-of-a-kind custom made ring created for you, your price to be paid will be greater, than a similar weight ring that was factory made. The price needs to pay the designer and the individual tasks of wax carving, casting, polishing, setting and putting on the special finishes or textures or engraving that make your ring unique.
Hi Marie, thanks for reaching out to us and I’m sorry to hear about your loss. We can probably help give you a rough idea of how much that ring is worth. Please email us some pictures of it along with any details you have on the ring (any stamps or inscriptions on it, gram weight, etc.), and we’ll see what we can find out for you.
Jewelry appraisals are the documents that deal with jewelry worth. There are actually a few different kinds of appraisals, but when most people talk about jewelry appraisals they mean insurance appraisals (check out our article about jewelry appraisal types). This is the heart of the problem of what jewelry is worth. Jewelry insurance appraisals don’t have anything to do with the worth of the jewelry item, only its replacement cost.
So, how much is your jewelry worth? It is definitely worth its intrinsic value. Every other price just depends on the situation. If you’re curious about how much your jewelry is worth, we recommend that you deal with a professional gemologist who can explain each of the values to you. Feel free to come in, and our gemologists will be happy to give you a free value appraisal of your jewelry.
Hi Michelle, that is a good question. Generally, with 14k there is a good chance the gems are genuine. Please feel free to bring all the jewelry by anytime we are open. We can give you a free value appraisal so you know exactly what you have.
Hi Melanie, thanks for commenting. It sounds like you found an interesting piece there. Without seeing it in person, we can’t accurately evaluate the intrinsic value for you. That said, if my currency conversion is correct and the piece is indeed 14k and it weighs around 23 grams, then you paid the spot metal price for it. If it weighs any more than that, then you paid less than the scrap value of the metal. If it weighs less than 23 grams, then however much less represents how much you paid for the workmanship, style, and delivery of the piece. Hopefully that makes sense, and feel free to contact us if you have any additional questions.

24k gold is 100% gold. Why the number “24”? All you need to know is it’s an ancient story having to do with kings and seed pods, best left for another time. Do know this: 14k gold is 14 parts real gold and 10 parts other metals, or expressed as a percentage, 58% gold and 42% other stuff. 18k gold is 75% gold and 25% other junk.
Calla, yur article was very helpful, but I’m curious whether I paid too much ($1,250) for an 18.5″ herringbone nacklace of 14K gold weighing 30.3g and with a width of 6mm? The necklace s used but is in excelelnt condition and highly polished.
Here, we are only discussing the value of 14K gold items when sold as scrap gold. However, retail prices for new jewelry depend on more than just the amount of pure gold in it; factors such as the piece’s design and brand also come into play.
I’m an individual not a store. I have a 14k yellow gold 27″ 16g chain that I am trying to sell. I have looked everywhere and can not find anything remotely close to this chain online. Do you know of any place online I might be able to type in a description and possibly find something comparable? I wish I could upload a picture of it.Your blog is amazing! You definitely hit the nail on the head. Individuals are offering me like 250 for the chain, but the pawnshop is offering me 350. It’s really difficult to price a gold piece. Especially when it could be a one of a kind. I wondered why the pawnshop was offering me more per gram then what I saw online for gold prices, I didn’t even think about the other metals that are used to make it.Awesome, keep up the great work!Reply

Hello, I was wondering if you could answer some questions I have about a ring that has been passed down to me…I believe it was my great grandmothers I can send pictures and give you as much information as I can…. I have an opal flower cluster ring, total of 9 stones. The inside band says Romany 10K. I’m not sure what kind of opal, I was wondering if you could help me out?
Hi Melissa, that’s a good question. Without being able to see the ring in person, we won’t be able to give you a very accurate value estimate. However, if you would like to email us some pictures, we can usually give you a ballpark value. Of course, you can always bring the ring in to the shop for a free value appraisal if you are in the Sacramento, CA area.
