goldOur question this week is….

What does “14 karat gold” mean?

ANSWER: Gold Content is specified by the familiar code of 10k, 14k, 18k etc.  The K (karat) number tells us how many parts ,  by weight , of pure gold are in 24 parts of the alloy.  24k means an item is 100 pure gold. so 14k would mean the item is 14/24’s gold or 58.33% gold.
