Gold jewellery is not pure Gold. It is an alloy; a mixture of metals. it can be alloyed with Silver, Copper, Zinc, Palladium, and Nickel to create different Gold colours. The most common Gold colours are: yellow, white and rose.
Yellow Gold is made by mixing pure Gold with Silver, Copper, and Zinc. It is the purest colour, the most hypo-allergenic, and requires the least maintenance of all the Gold colours.
White Gold is made of Gold and Platinum (or [Palladium). White Gold can also be made of Gold, Palladium, Nickel and Zinc. White Gold is more durable and scratch-resistant than yellow Gold.
Rose Gold (or pink Gold) is alloyed with Gold, Copper, and Silver. Rose Gold is more affordable than the other Gold colours because it uses the inexpensive Copper for its rose colour. Due to its Copper content, rose Gold is more durable than yellow or white Gold.
100% pure Gold is marked as “24K”. However, it is unusual to find a “24k” mark on a jewellery because pure Gold is a soft metal and is more likely to scratch and bend. Gold in jewellery is therefore often mixed with other metals to make it more durable and is reflected by its carat.
24ct is pure Gold: there is no higher carat for Gold. It's generally considered to be too soft to make jewellery with on its own, however, it may be used for gilding, plating or for making ceremonial objects. It has a luminous, rich and warm golden colour.
22ct Gold is 22 parts pure Gold, making it 91.67% pure. Gold jewellery made with 22ct metal is reliably durable, but it still retains much of the beautiful colour of 24ct Gold, making it a good compromise.
18ct Gold is of 75% gold and 25% other alloyed metals. It offers a very good compromise between price and purity (and excellent colour). It is regarded as the European standard purity of Gold.
14ct Gold is commonly used in the United States. It's 58.3% pure Gold, yet still retains a good Gold colouring, making it a good compromise when cost is important.
9ct Gold is little paler yellow colour when compared with 14 or 18ct Gold. It has the lowest content of pure Gold, which may compromise in strength, but bringing great price advantage and crowned as the most affordable Gold carat in jewellery.
