What does "24 KGB" MEAN ON A NECKLAS & HOW MUCH CAN I GET FOR IT IF I SOLD IT??

While the 24 part means pricey, the kgb part is not so much.

The karatage of the jewelry will tell you what percentage of gold it contains: 24 karat is 100 percent, 18 karat is 75 percent, and 14 karat is 58 percent gold.

However, KGB stands for "Karat Gold Bonded" which describes jewelry composed of a sheet of Karat which is mechanically affixed (bonded) on top of a Sterling Silver core. This means that a layer of 24 karat gold has been used to coat another metal. The price will depend on the value of the underlying metal and the gold overlayed.
