FAQ: 24K GOLD

WHAT IS SOLID GOLD JEWELRY?


Solid gold jewelry (also known as pure gold, 24k gold, etc.) contains 100% gold. It is 24k gold, the highest kt gold you can buy, and the most expensive.


 

IS 24K GOLD REAL?


The answer is a resounding yes; 24k gold is 100% real and does not contain any other materials.



WHAT COLOR IS 24K GOLD?


There are different types of yellow gold. These different types of yellow gold have different shades; for example, the color of yellow gold ranges from a light lemon shade to a deep golden color.


Because 24k gold jewelry is 100% pure, it has the richest yellow color—the more pure gold in a piece, the brighter (or more yellow-orange); thus, 14k and 18k gold will appear less saturated than 24k gold.



IS 24K ONLY AVAILABLE IN ONE COLOR?


Yes, 24k gold is pure, so it does not contain any alloys to cause a color change.




IS 24K GOLD DURABLE?


24k gold is a soft metal, so it is not as durable as other types of alloyed gold. Soft gold scratches and dents easily, so 24k gold is unsuitable for jewelry use.



CAN YOU WEAR 24K GOLD EVERY DAY?


No, 24k gold is too soft for daily wear. It's easy to scratch and bend, so it's not suitable for everyday wear. 



WILL 24K GOLD TARNISH?


No, pure gold will never tarnish, rust, or corrode.

DOES 24K GOLD TURN GREEN?


No, 24k gold is pure and shiny and never rusts, tarnishes, or turns green over time.



HOW TO TELL IS 24K GOLD IS REAL?
