How much is 14ct gold worth per gram?

Continuing my popular mini selling scrap gold series of “How much…” This time its 14 carat gold! Just a recap that the carat (ct) is the unit used to denote the purity of gold. The higher the number, the purer the gold, i.e. the ‘gold’ alloy has more gold content and fewer other alloy metals. By the way in the USA, and some other countries it is spelt ‘karat’ (kt).

24ct gold is calculated to be 100% pure or fine gold or industry standard 99.9%, So 14ct gold is classified as 58.5% gold with additional41.5% alloy. 58.5% fine gold.!

Gold is added with other metals to allow the change in colour and the hardness of the finished product.

14ct gold is often used for men’s rings, as the higher carats such as 22ct and 24ct, while more valuable, are much too soft and will wear a lot quicker.

14ct gold is a popular purity in meditereanean countries such as Greece and Italy. Please be aware that there is no official hallmarking standard or in essence guarantee of gold purity in these countries. In my experience when melted down, items marked as 14 carat (14k) from Greece are often of slightly lesser in purity – around the 55% mark.
