How Many Carats are My Gold Jewelry?

First of all, it is necessary to know the carat value of gold jewelry. Gold jewelry works have marks or seals with marks or imprints, indicating carat value or gold purity. Some marks are relatively small or not obvious, you need to use a magnifying glass to check the jewelry. In general, you can see numbers or text. The number of karats of the ring will be a number followed by "k" or "kt", such as "10K" or "14Kt".


If you do not find the carat number, you may find a larger number that represents the gold purity of the ring. Examples of signs of gold purity include 585, 417, and 750. In essence, gold purity numbers are expressed in percentage terms. For the sake of knowing the purity of your gold more clearly, you need to convert them to decimals, just adding a decimal place to the right. This means that 585 becomes 58.5%, which is the amount of pure gold in jewelry. The higher the percentage, the purer gold in the jewelry, and the higher the corresponding value.
