High Karat Gold Jewelry Available at Serengeti West
High karat gold is available in San Luis Obispo. When shopping for precious metals in jewelry, the purity of gold is very important. Yellow gold comes in many purities, such as 14k, 18k gold content, all the way up to pure gold (which is not commonly used in the United States). Higher karats can scratch easily, which impacts their use.
A piece of gold begins with pure gold. From there alloys such as copper, silver, nickel and zinc. The karat weight is indicative of how pure the gold is. For instance, 10k gold is 41.67% pure, while 14k gold is 58.33% pure. 24 karat gold (often abbreviated as 24k gold) is pure gold. 14 karats is the most common gold seen in American jewelry.
