Pure gold is generally considered to be too soft to make jewellery ornaments with on its own, however, it may be used for gilding, plating or for making ceremonial objects. It has a luminous, rich and very warm golden color. Given it’s purity, 24ct gold is also the most expensive version of gold by its weight.
22 carat gold is the 22 parts pure gold, making it 91.67% pure. The remainder can be made up of alloyed metals like zinc, copper, silver and nickel which are responsible for golds enhanced strength. Gold jewellery made with 22ct metal is reliably durable, but it still retains much of the very beautiful color of 24ct gold, making it a good compromise. However, it’s best level of purity also makes it very expensive.
