Differences Between 24-Karat and 22-Karat Gold in Vijayawada

 

Karat (K) is a unit used to measure gold's purity. Since gold is a soft metal, making it malleable enough to mould into jewellery is essential. To do so, goldsmiths add some metal to it to give it body and weight.

Many people need clarification on 24-karat and 22-karat gold. Both have a few differences:

  • In 24-Karat, the amount of gold is 99.9%. Whereas 22-Karat gold consists of 91.67%
  • 24-Karat gold is brighter than 22-Karat.
  • 24-Karat is softer than 22-Karat.
  • 24-Karat cannot be used to make jewellery due to its extreme softness. But 22-Karat can be used to make jewellery.

22-karat gold is also known as 916 hallmarked gold. The hallmark ensures that the gold is of high quality. Due to fluctuations in the gold rate, there are always price variations in 22-Karat gold in Vijayawada.

 

What are KDM and 916 Hallmarked Gold?

 

KDM refers to the blend of gold and cadmium. In KDM gold jewellery, 8% cadmium is used as solder with 92% gold. But now cadmium is replaced with zinc and copper after the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) banned cadmium.

The hallmarked number 916 stands for 22 karats of pure gold. The amount of pure gold in this blend is 91.6%. The hallmark certification ensures that the gold is of high quality. You should check this hallmark before buying gold in Vijayawada so that you can be sure that the gold is pure and certified.
