  • According to calculators, and based on yesterday's London price for platinum, about $150 give or take.

  • There is no such thing as 14k platinum. There is 14k white or yellow gold OR Platinum which is a different metal altogether. Google todays price per ounce for each. But the ounce price is for pure gold & 14K will be a fraction of the price of an ounce.

  • By the way, today an ounce of pure gold here in the US is $1,379.50.

  • You just have to convert karats to ounces.

  • You have to figure out how much the piece weighs, preferably in grams, then for a rough estimate, use a calculator to determine the value. 14k is about 50% purity maybe??? I'm not sure. Is there a pt or plat number on your ring? That may help.

  • Dh says it may be in penny-weight also and that it is not 14K if it is platinum (most likely white gold)
