The main factor to consider while buying gold is how many karats(stamped on the piece as ‘k’ or’kt’) the gold jewelry you are buying is. Gold usually comes in 10,14,18 and 24 karat gold. 24 kt being the purest, most expensive and shiny but simultaneously the most malleable. My recommendation would be to buy 18 kt gold. 18 kt gold is the perfect mix between pure gold and other alloys to help keep it strong and prevent malleability. The lower the karat, the less gold and more metal is mixed in(ex. 12 kt gold is 50% gold and 50% other metals). 18 kt is perfect for jewelry such as wedding rings and earrings due to its high gold content which will prevent allergies for almost all, and the bolts and hooks will not come loose because the alloys in place will help them stay. 18kt gold will be easier on your pocket and on your rings and timepieces. When you see the ’18k’ or ‘750’ stamp on a piece of jewelry you know you are on the right path!! Shopping for gold and diamond jewelry can get exhausting, but with the above information, success in your purchase will be yours!!
