All of Perry’s Emporium prices vary depending on the quality of the gold you are wanting to sell. Gold’s purity is determined by karats.
The term “karats” is very different than “carats” which is the unit of measurement that determines a diamond or gemstone’s weight value. With gold, the term “karat” refers to the metal’s purity. It is measured on a scale from 10-24. The more alloy metals that are mixed in with the gold, the lower the number of karats will be.
24 karats – This is the purest form of gold. At this level, there are no alloys added to the metal which leaves it rather soft and impractical for use in most jewelry.
18 karats – This is the second highest purity. It means there are 18 parts gold to 6 parts alloy metals. This is usually the ideal form for high-quality jewelry.
14 karats – The most common type of gold used for jewelry, it has 14 parts gold to 10 parts alloy metals.
10 karats – This is the minimum standard in the U.S. for jewelry to be labeled “gold” and has 10 parts gold to 14 parts alloy metals.
