925 marking on a piece of "gold"

There is a thread up right now titled Shocked. That lady has an 18K piece that is not testing 18K at her jewelers. That got me looking at the gold ring I chose to wear today, a 14K Greek Key ring I got on the sponge docks in Tarpon Springs, Florida, about 10-15 years ago. This was a gold shop that gets its jewelry directly from Greece and its still up on the internet, Goldfingers. It is your standard Greek Key design with a sizing bar on the back. So, I get out my loupe, look at the back, and its stamped 925. My experience tells me this appears to be 14K, not plated silver. I paid $100.00 for the ring, and the current prices seem very cheap, $140.00 for a similar ring. 22K gold is 91.3 % gold, so that's not my answer. Can anyone help?
