Carat can refer to the quality or purity of gold – pure gold ie a metal that is 100% gold and nothing else but gold, is known as pure gold or 24-carat gold
So for example with a ring which is 18 carat ie 18/24s gold or put another way, 18 divided by 24 is 0.750 or 3/4
You may see jewellery marked 0.750 which is a somewhat modern way of writing 18ct as we say in the UK and 18k as they say in the rest of the world
The colour of pure gold is yellow. However, if gold is mixed with other metals it can become a silvery colour, known as white gold, or pinky and is then known as rose gold
The primary colour associated with gold is a rich hue of yellow. It’s the type of gold most often associated with nature, spirituality, and royalty. The colour and vibrancy of yellow gold has created something of a false perception that it’s the purest gold on the market. That’s because it looks natural, as if it were panned from a riverbank, or mined. In fact, yellow gold does contain metal alloys. The type of yellow gold most often used in jewellery is an alloy, because it’s too soft to maintain a durable shape over time without this. When it comes to jewellery, yellow gold is the combination of other metals and pure gold, to give it lasting shape.
