"AU" is an international symbol used to indicate the purity of gold. K gold is an alloy of gold and other metals fused.

The K for gold is directly related to the weight unit "carat" of the gemstone. "Carat" comes from the French Carat, and "K" is taken from the French Karat. In French, these two words are pronounced as "Carat", which is easy to be confused. In order to distinguish the two, the weight unit of the gemstone is "carat", and the gold symbol is "K".

The name of gold depends on its purity. For example, gold with a purity of more than 99% is collectively called "foot gold".

Although K gold has various contents, 18K gold and 24K gold are most widely used in jewelry.

There is also 14K, which is generally more preferred abroad.

In theory, 100% gold can be called 24K gold, but in reality it is impossible to have 100% gold, so China stipulates that gold with a content of more than 99.6% (including 99.6%) can be called 24K gold. K gold content is a general specification for jewelry. The state stipulates that gold jewelry with a lower 9K cannot be called gold jewelry. Zh

There are many colors of K gold, usually yellow, red and white. Among them, white K gold is actually an alloy of gold and nickel, zinc, copper and other elements. It is not the so-called platinum jewelry.

All in all, 24K gold is relatively soft, so there is a certain degree of difficulty in modeling, and the style is limited, but it can maintain value. 18K gold has high hardness, suitable for modeling and inlaying. It has more styles and is more fashionable, but it does not maintain value.

14K gold is recommended for particularly complicated styles because it is more stable. Generally speaking, the price of 14K gold is relatively cheap in precious metals, the texture is relatively hard, and it is not easy to rust and corrosion. 18K gold and 14K gold are also better able to meet people's requirements for craftsmanship, creating more fashionable shapes that are loved by young people.

Generally speaking, people from traditional and value-preserving tend to choose 24k gold, while modern young people, focusing on fashion and style, have diversified personalities, they tend to 14k gold jewelry because of its rich and novel style, which can fully satisfy people. Personality needs.
