Measuring the Purity of Gold

by
Measuring the Purity of Gold The purity of gold is measured in karats, with 24 karats being pure gold. For jewelry, the two most popular measurements used are 10K (meaning there is 10 parts gold to 14 parts metal) and 14K (or 14 parts gold to 10 parts metal). The reason that there is no 24K jewelry is because gold is simply to soft by itself to create jewelry with.



Measuring the Purity of Gold There are different reasons one might choose 10K or 14K gold jewelry. While 14k jewelry contains more gold, it is less durable than 10K jewelry, and therefore 14K jewelry is not recommended for everyday use. And while 10K jewelry is cheaper and better suited for everyday use, some wearers find their skin is allergic to the higher amounts of nickel. How much 14K and/or 10K jewelry to own is something each person has to decide for him or herself.
