What is 24 carat gold? Carat is a unit of measurement for the purity of gold alloys and other precious metals. The grade of gold is usually expressed as a complete unit of 24.
For example, 24 carat gold is pure gold with at least 99.9% gold and 18 carat gold is composed of 75% gold and 25% other metal. Pure gold is not suitable for making most items because of its softness, so most of the gold used in Jewelry is not pure gold, and goldsmiths add copper and Silver to make it into jewelry. It can be made by lowering the grade.
In Iran, 18 carat is used, but in Arab countries, the gold grade varies between 20 and 24, and in European countries or the United States, 14 carat is usually used. So do not be deceived by anything called 24 carat gold under any circumstances. The only gold that is pure 24 carats is gold bullion, and because bullion is a soft metal, jewelry cannot be made from it alone.
It is easy to distinguish gold from silver and platinum. As a general principle, most gold is loaded with the English letter K next to a number that indicates its grade. Silver is stamped with an oval mark and platinum is marked with the letters of PT, so you do not have to struggle to tell the difference.
