Designer jewelry varies greatly on the market today. Gold ore is mined from many different locations around the world, but the standards for gold jewelry remain the same. Knowing these standards will help you when purchasing your gold jewelry.
No matter if you are looking that perfect fine jewelry rings, gold’s purity is determined by its karat weight. The term karat refers to a method of measuring, on a scale of 1 to 24, of how much pure gold and how much alloy is in each piece of gold jewelry. The lower the karat, the less pure gold is used and the higher the karat, the higher amount of pure gold was used in creating the piece.
Depending where you live will determine the purity of the gold in your fine jewelry. The different karats that are most commonly seen used for gold jewelry in the United States are 10karat, 14karat, and 18karat gold. Karat is typically shortened and will appear as 10K, 14K and 18K on your jewelry. These different levels are indicative of the content of pure gold that is contained in the jewelry.
