Jewelry Tips: The purity of gold is most often measured in fineness, but Americans still use the karat (abbreviated “k'” or “kt”) in jewelry: 24k gold is pure gold (1000 fine); it is too soft to use as jewelry [but excellent for bribery, smuggling and similar enterprises’]. 18k gold (750 fine or 75 percent pure) is softer than 14k gold (585 fine, 58.3 percent pure), but has a deeper color. 10k gold (416 fine or just under 42 percent) is the legal minimum; lesser alloys may be marketed as gold tone but not as gold. Gold jewelry imported from outside the USA may use fineness instead of karats to describe its purity.
