Alloys

If you always wanted to know how exactly the different alloys - white gold, yellow gold, rosé gold - are made, you have come to the right place.

Have fun while reading.

 

Each alloy is based on gold. They differ by the addition of other metals and of course by the price, because the higher the gold content, the more expensive it gets, but the higher the quality of the alloy.

 

The term carat (abbr. Kt or C) is used to indicate the fine content of gold and indicates the amount of pure gold in the total weight of a gold alloy. Gold is mainly processed together with silver and copper.

Gold with 24 carat contains 24/24 parts of gold.

The purity of processed gold, alternatively to carat is also given in 1/1000 parts.

333 gold a gold share of 333 / 1000 = 0.333 = 33.3% or 8 kt

375 gold a gold share of 375 / 1000 = 0.375 = 37.5% or 9 kt

585 gold a gold share of 585 / 1000 = 0.585 = 58.5% or 14 kt

750 gold a gold share of 750 / 1000 = 0.750 = 75% or 18 kt
