14K Gold is the Choice for You

14k Gold is the Choice for You—Here’s Why

When you’re shopping for high-quality jewelry, you’ll inevitably come across the choice of a wide variety of metals and karat weights. It can be confusing to decipher which option is best for you, but it shouldn’t be. When you’re shopping for high-quality gold pieces, you should always reach for the materials made out of 14k gold.

What is 14k Gold?

As you already know, gold is a naturally occurring element that is extremely soft, making it an ideal option for molding into gold earrings, gold necklaces and gold rings. Karatage of gold is used to express the purity level of the gold. For example, if a piece of jewelry was 100% pure gold, it would be called 24k gold. 18k gold is 75% pure gold and 14k gold is 58.3% pure gold. Because it is so soft, though, it’s not a practical option to wear pure gold day-in and day-out. That’s why jewelers blend gold and other metals to create a durable composition that will last a lifetime.

 

14k gold, in particular, is a mixture that’s made out of just over 50% pure gold that’s combined with other metals to create a fortified alloy. The addition of these other metals fortifies the mixture and make it possible to wear 14k gold jewelry for years to come. To mark that a piece is 14k gold, the creator will often add a 14k gold stamp somewhere on the jewelry piece.

14k gold is often the preferred choice to make everyday jewelry out of because of its durability and reliability. Many engagement rings are made out of 14k gold, as are wedding bands, bracelets and other jewelry pieces.
