What does “karat” or “18k” mean?
Karat is a unit of measurement, which represents the percentage of gold versus other metals in a piece of jewelry. Pure gold is too soft to support everyday use, so it is mix with other metals, called alloy. Pure gold is 24 karat gold, meaning 24 out of 24 parts (100%) are gold. That is how we get the karat percentage. The higher the number the larger percent of gold: 18kt, 14kt, 10kt, etc. So “18k” or “18KT” means a piece of gold jewelry is 18 out of 24 parts gold.
