WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE - 10K, 14K, 18K AND 24K?
Most jewelry is made from gold mixed with other metals called alloys.
Gold purity is measured in karats that indicate the percentage of pure gold.
10k gold is 41.7% pure gold and 58.3% alloy. 14k gold is 58.5%, 18k is 75% pure. Only 24k is 100% pure gold. Mixing gold with alloys makes jewelry more durable and less expensive.
