Testimonial

I brought Alderwood Jewellery 2 one side of earrings that had great sentimental value. Debbie suggested we combine them into a pendant. I wear this pendant every day and it means alot. Thank you Debbie!

How gold is gold?

Getting technical... alloys which are mixed 14 parts gold to 10 parts alloy create 14-karat gold, 18 parts gold to 6 parts alloy creates 18 karat, and so on. This is often expressed as the result of the ratio, i.e.: 14/24 equals 0.585 and 18/24 is 0.750.

The more gold in the alloy, the more yellowish it will appear in color. The karat grade will always indicate the amount of gold in the alloy. For example, 18K = 75% pure gold. So for 18K, this only leaves 25% of the alloy for other metals to make it whiter. This is why 18K white gold is more yellowish than 14K white gold.
