Know your Carats
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
Antique jewellery was often hallmarked 15 ct,this was very common in Victorian times, 15 carat and 12 carat were discontinued in 1932,and replaced by 14 carat but this has not turned out to be popular. Most English hallmarked jewellery since is either 9ct or 18ct.
