Selling 18 carat gold ? 18ct gold is actually an alloy of such, basically a mix of gold and other metals, typically copper, silver and / or zinc. The mixture of alloy actually contributes to the colour of the gold. For an item of jewellery to be hallmarked 18ct gold, it must contain a minimum of 75% gold this is why you will often see a “750” accompanying Hallmark.

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).

As a scrap gold buyer I am asked quite often how much 9ct gold is worth per gram. Some people are keen to know more when chatting! 9ct gold is an alloy (mix) of metals, comprising of 37.5% gold content plus a combination of other metals, most commonly copper, silver and zinc. The proportions of other metals (Alloys) used is dependent on the colour required. For example, 9ct red or Rose gold will contain a high proportion of copper, whereas white gold will contain little or no copper.
