I've heard it could be a maker's mark or the date? Does anybody have an idea?

Also, it has 14K on the inside, but I know what that means. Thank you!

The 14k inside the ring is only the quality of the gold. Like your ring have only 58,3% of gold on it the rest is part of silver and part of coper.

It's probably the maker's mark.

Hi Lisa,

A mark on the inside of the ring will usually indicate the maker, and if crafted from gold, provide a stamp to show the grade of gold used - in this instance 14 Karat gold. As Andre confirmed - 58.3% gold.

Our men's rings usually have the designer name engraved on the inside but we also provide a service to allow our customers to personalise the ring for a loved one.

Hope that helps

It's probably "Zales" mark. I have an engagement from Zales also, and it is marked Zp 14K

It is actually an equation used to size small rings.

I have a ring that has Libco and Zp 14k engraved on the inside. Also from Zales. So is the consensus that its just Zale's thing?

I have a ZP on my while gold earrings. It says ZP 14 K. Mine is not from Zales it is from Mappins. Also, my ears react to them which makes me question if they are pure gold or not.

If they are marked 14k, then they are indeed gold...14k is 58.5 % pure gold, the other 41.5 % is made up of copper and other alloys, it could be that you are allergic to gold, or possibly one of the factors that make up the other 41.5 %. I would try going with 18k earrings, seeing that they are 75% pure, if that doesn't work, then go with sterling silver.

i think it the zp is the pierless code of how clear the diamond is. Z, zp, p, m, i dont know but i think zp is 98%-99.99% pierless diamond. Meaning the diamond is near perfect

It's the jewelers mark. My engagement ring is from Gordon's and it also had the zp engraving. Sales Gordon's and mapping are all incorporated by zales. . If you check the zales incorporation website, they have a list of their brands not just the three I named here and they all have the same zp marking

It sounds like it is probably a makers mark from the region that is has come from

i have seen all sorts of strange marks inside of rings

they usually have absolutely no meaning but to those who made them

warm regards

It is definately a zales inc mark, which distributes to other companies. Rings can not be 100% gold because gold is a very soft metal and the ring would damage easily. Diamond clarity is measured in letters (H,I,J) and so on.
