Basics You Should Know Before Buying Gold Jewelery

All about gold Pure gold is what we call 24 karat gold, and is a bright yellow. It is also very, very soft- so soft in fact that it can be scratched using your fingernail. It is also expensive- selling now at a near high point of over $1000 US an ounce.

For the reasons above gold is almost never used in jewelery in its pure form. Apart from the bright yellow colour and the cost becoming astronomical very quickly, the fact that it is so soft does not lend itself to jewelery that will stand up to regular wear and tear.

Explaining karats 

Pure gold is melted and mixed or alloyed with other metals to help make it stronger. The amount of the other metals changes the karat. Gold that is equal parts pure gold and some other metal (a 50% blend) will be 12 karat gold- or 50% of 24 karat.

This is why different places have different laws as to what can legally be sold as gold. In most of Europe and Asia, you can old sell it as "gold" if it is more than 50% pure gold- so more than 12 karat. This is why 14karat is the most common gold available commercially in these places. It is hard enough to wear well, and mixed with enough other metals to bring down the price substantially. In North America is is common to find 10 karat gold which has, in reality, less than 50% gold content.
