How is the Purity of Gold Measured?

Karat Grade

For gold, karat grade is used to express the proportion of gold in an alloy. Fine gold (99.9% pure) is 24 karat. The proportions in other karats are listed in the table below.

All jewelry is required by law to be hallmarked. Jewelry made in North America is marked with the karat grade (10K, 14K, 18K, 22K, 24K), and jewelry made in Italy is marked with a hallmark such as (417, 583, 750, 917, 999). So if your jewelry does not have a karat grade stamped on it, check for a 3-digit hallmark.
