Is 14 Karat gold real gold?

14 Karat gold is 58.5 percent pure gold. It is classified as “alloyed” gold, meaning it is mixed with other metals such as silver, copper, zinc and more.

Why do we mix gold?

Pure gold is very soft. It is easily malleable. Pure gold is prone to deformation and is therefore not good for making jewelry. In order to make jewelry more durable, pure gold is mixed with other, more robust, metals to create a stronger metal alloy. The Karat of gold therefore signifies the percentage of pure gold used to make your piece.

Why do we sell 14 Karat gold jewelry?

The lower the karat, the stronger the piece. However, the lower the karat of the piece, the lower the percentage of pure gold within it. 14 karat gold is a market standard of gold alloy because it strikes a perfect balance by being robust, but still maintaining a high percentage of pure gold. This makes it strong, but still valuable. 14 karat gold still has the rich luster of pure gold, while being durable enough to maintain the shape and design of your piece.

Is your jewelry hypo-allergenic?

Yes and no. Gold itself is a hypo-allergenic metal. Our jewelry is made of 14 karat gold, meaning the percentage of pure gold is high. An allergy to our pieces is rare but may be possible if you have a strong sensitivity to any of the other metals used to make the alloy.

What is the difference between yellow gold, white gold and rose gold? Do they all contain the same amount of gold?

The difference is in the metals that are mixed with the gold and quantity of certain metals to create the alloy. Yellow gold contains metals like copper, silver, and zinc. White gold contains metals like copper, nickel, and zinc. Rose gold contains more copper which gives it its pink color. All three variations are required to contain the same percentage of gold if they are to fall under the same Karat.
