Sneha Dec 17, 2010

Before you buy yourself gold jewellery the most common advice that our elders and friends tend to give you is to check the Hallmark or Karat on the jewellery. Questions like “Is this Hallmark jewellery” or even “Are you wearing 24-K jewellery” are most common questions asked with regards to your gold jewellery.

If you do not know what these terms mean then you do not know your jewellery’s worth. It is imperative that you know of these terms if you want to know everything about your jewellery, its worth and if the jewellery is genuine or no.

Lets take a quick look at what these terms mean.

Karat – Gold in its pure form cannot hold on its own, as it is very soft, and the slightest of heat could melt it. Pure gold can be made strong and malleable when mixed with an alloy of material. The amount of gold that stays after the alloys are mixed is determined by the term karat or Kt/ K.
