gold is measure from 1 to 24 karat. The word karat derives
from the carob bean, used as a measure of weight in the ancient
Karat indicates the amount of pure gold in the metal. One
karat equals 1/24 (.0417%), so that 14 karats is 14/24 fine
gold and the balance (10/24) alloy. If the gold content of
an alloy is less than 10/24 the object cannot be represented
as karat gold. 18K gold is 75% gold; 14k gold is 58.5% gold;
and 10K is 41.6%. Jewelry is commonly 9K to 18K. 14 karat
is 14 parts pure gold to 10 parts of other metals.
The European marking for 14 karat gold jewelry is 585; for
18K it is 750. Karat will tell you that the piece is real
gold and the percentage of pure gold it contains. The higher
the percentage of pure gold the higher the karat.
Pure (100%) gold is too soft, and it is usually mixed with
other metals (gold alloys) to make it stronger and more usable
for jewelry. Pure gold, or 24K, has a deeply warm and rich
color, but it is extremely soft and easily damaged. The higher
the karatage, the richer the color will be and the more costly.
With metals or alloys such as copper or iron pyrite, copying
gold color is easy and they will look just as the gold as
the real 14k gold, but one should know that gold does not
change in color, rust or corrode or fade. Gold survives time.
