What is Carat?
It is a common misconception that karat, which is the purity measurement for gold, and carat, which is the weight measurement for diamonds, are the same things.
Diamonds are measured per 200mg, which incrementally increases the carat of the diamond.
However, you most likely will come across the term ‘Carat’ in relation to gold, referring to the percentage of pure gold within an article, not the weight of the gold. Karat is a measure of the purity of gold in proportion to the total weight of impurities including alloyed metals. It is stamped on the gold and provides information about the type of gold and the percentage of pure gold that it contains.
You may see it abbreviated to these symbols: ct, K or kt.
Karat is measured and expressed using numbers 0-24. A higher -K number means that there is a higher percentage of gold present in the article. 24-Karat gold is the purest gold and contains no other metal.
