Gold...
All true gold jewellery is made of an alloy of the metal gold, the purity of which is stated in the well known measure of "karats", which is used and commonly recognisable throughout the world. The standard symbol used is a number followed by the letter "K" . It is of importance to identify that typical gold jewellery purchased in the United Kingdom has a range of 9K (41.7% pure gold) to 22K (91.6% pure gold), while 24K (99.9% pure gold) is considered too soft and easily damaged for realistic jewellery design by designers and goldsmiths.
