FAQ

What is 18K and 14K gold? Why don’t you use pure gold?
While 18 karat gold comprises 75 percent pure gold mixed with 25 percent of other metals, 14 karat gold comprises 58.3 percent pure gold mixed with 41.7 percent of other metals. Pure gold (24K) is soft and malleable and thus, not preferred in making jewellery. Adding alloys to gold in different proportions makes it sturdy and easy to cast into jewellery.

What are Rose, Yellow and White gold? Are they real?
The color of gold varies depending on the different alloys mixed with pure gold. Yellow, white and rose gold have the same percentage of pure gold; therefore, they hold the same value. You can choose a color according to your preferences.
