FAQs of 18K Gold Rate in Madurai

Are 22 Karat and 24 Karat gold rates different in Madurai?

DownArrow

Yes, 24 Karat is gold in its purest form. But it is too soft for use. Hence, metals like zinc are added to strengthen it. The gold thus created is the 22 Karat variant. While 24 Karat is 99.9% pure, 22 Karat typically consists of around 91% pure gold. As a result, 24 Karat gold costs more than 22 Karat gold.
