10K Gold

« Back to Glossary Index

Pure gold is very soft and rarely used to make jewelry. Instead, jewelers use alloys known collectively as karat gold. Karat (K) indicates the number of parts by weight of gold in 24 parts of an alloy. Pure gold is 24K. 10K is 42% gold. The rest may be silver, brass, bronze or other base metals.
