Hi Customer and welcome back to Just Answer!

Jewelry that is 14 karat gold may say either 14k or 14kt; both stamps indicate 14 karat gold.

can it be fake and have the stamp of 14k or only if it is real
Expert:  Cher replied 6 years ago.
Hi again and thanks very much for your accept and your reply.

Also, thanks for your patience; I just received notification of your reply.

Only if it is real, will it contain the stamp of 14k; however, unfortunately, nowadays with so many 'fakes' in jewelry, it's always possible that some unscrupulous people have figured out how to stamp non-14k gold with such a stamp. If you have doubts, ask a jeweler to look at it through a jeweler's 'loop' (special magnifying glass for jewelry) and also test the gold to confirm that it is, indeed, real 14k gold.
