What are Gold karats and colours?

Gold is a beautiful and long lasting metal that has been used since ancient times and still stands as a symbol of quality and wealth.


Gold is marked by its “karat”. This refers to the quantity of pure gold that is in each gram. For example, 24K is pure gold and 14K is 14 parts of pure gold in every 24 grams of metal.

24K = 100%
18K = 75%
14K - 58.333%
10K = 41.667%


All pure gold is a yellow colour, but by alloying gold with other metals we can create different colours.

Yellow Gold = Silver & Copper alloy
Green Gold = Silver alloy
Rose Gold = Copper alloy
White Gold – Palladium or Nickle alloy
