How old is your gold
Gold was the first metal widely known to our specie, perhaps no other metal is considered as legendary and stunning as gold. In olden times, it was thought to have therapeutic properties when worn. Gold has an astounding legacy and exceptional traits. The rarity, exquisiteness, and enigma of this metal have presented it with the status of being the most valuable commodity throughout the history of mankind. Gold is the most malleable and ductile metal, which makes it very easy to work with. It is found naturally in a discrete yellow color and is defiant to tarnish, rust, and corrosion. Due to its brilliance and durability gold in ancient days was used to make ornaments for the deities and royalty. In recent times this precious metals scarcity, density, and uniqueness has made it a natural trading medium.
Your Treasure And Its Measure
Gold purity or percentage is measured in karats denoted by the letter “K” and is represented in the range of 1 to 24 karat. Since 24 karat is pure gold, it is the most expensive, but is less durable as 100% gold is too soft for extended handling and usage. Due to its pliable nature gold is commonly used in karat weights of 18 kt (75% gold), 14 kt (58% gold), and 10 kt (41% gold). Owing to its natural properties gold has an extraordinary shine and remarkable physical characteristics, which make it exceptionally well suited for making jewelry.
