Gold! Gold! Gold! Gold! Bright and yellow, hard and cold,” wrote Thomas Hood, but for most Indian women gold is anything cold. Warm yellow gold is beautiful, durable and considered auspicious in India, where the bride is literally wrapped in jewellery from head to toe on her wedding day. Gold jewellery is bought on events such as Akshay Tritiya and Dhanteras to symbolize the entrance of the goddess Lakshmi into the house. Shiny, sparkling jewellery is one of the most precious and cherished things of women all over the world. Gold is almost never dyed and proves to be a valuable reward for the future as it is passed down from generation to generation as a family heirloom during a wedding.

Convinced of buying jewellery but puzzled by different terminology, you wonder what is the difference between karat and carat or between overlay and solid jewellery? Do not worry; this article will clarify.

Perhaps the most important factor to keep in mind for buyers is karat, which is the amount of gold present in jewellery and has absolutely nothing to do with carat, which is a measure of the weight of gemstones. Thus K or karat refers to the total amount of gold mixed with other metals that have been used to make a particular ornament of jewellery. 24K gold is the purest form of gold. Soft 24k gold cannot be transformed into intricate jewellery without mixing it with base metals in varying proportions. So in stores, you’ll find jewellery labelled as 18K, 14K, 12K, 10Kor 9K, all of which reflect the mixing ratio with other metals, and the number explains the balance in which that metal was mixed. Thus, 14K jewellery contains 14 parts of gold, while 12K jewellery contains only 12 parts of gold. The more karats, the greater the proportion of gold in jewellery. When shopping for jewellery, it is always advisable to look closely at the gold seal or hallmark that shows the karat. A Hallmark is a certification mark in karats and should never be confused with a manufacturer’s mark or seal.

Pure gold is too soft to be used in jewellery. Moreover, it will be too expensive and delicate to use. Therefore, metals such as silver, copper, palladium and others. They are mixed to make them stronger and more durable. Mixing metals with gold also helps to create jewellery of different colors.
