Comparison Between 24K and 22K Gold

While buying gold in Rajapulayam, you must have come across the term 'Karat' denoted by 'K'. Karat is the unit to measure the purity of gold. More is the Karat; more is the purity of gold, and vice-versa.

• 24K Gold - This is the purest form of gold, with 99.9% purity. No other grade of gold is as pure as 24K. However, this gold is too soft to form jewellery. Therefore, it is mainly used in making gold bars and coins. The colour of this gold is distinctly yellow. Due to its higher purity level, it is more expensive than the 22K gold. If you want to purchase gold for storage and investment purposes, you can buy 24K gold.
• 22K Gold - In terms of purity, 22K gold holds the second position. This is the gold which is used for making jewellery. 22K means that 22 pieces of jewellery contain pure gold while the other two contain other metals such as zinc, copper, nickel, etc, with which gold is mixed. Due to this amalgamation of other metals, gold becomes hard and durable to form jewellery.
