What is the difference between carat and karat?
Karat is used as the unit of measurement to indicate the clarity of gold, especially since gold combines with other precious metals. The pure gold is shown as 24 karat or 24K, 75% pure gold is 18 karat or 18k and so on. Now, carat is used as a term when measuring the weight of diamonds. For example, 2-carat is the same as 0.2 grams.
What makes 18 Karat gold more expensive than a 14 Karat?
Jewelry made with 18 Karat or 18k gold will contain a much higher percentage of pure gold. 100% pure gold is actually 24 Karat or 24K, while the 18 Karat is 75% pure.
Why similar jewelry pieces have different price tags?
There are several factors that will be considered when determining the cost of gold jewelry. For instance, gold is usually sold by the weight so the heavier pieces will cost more than the lighter ones. The prices will also depend on the size and quality of the gemstones, cut, clarity and other factors. Also, designer jewelry are usually more expensive, especially the one-of-a-kind pieces. Special finishes like matte can also affect the value of jewelry pieces.
What is meant by the 4Cs?
Universally, diamonds are priced and graded according to the 4Cs, which stands for the clarity, color, cut and carat weight. They are used to describe the different characteristics of diamond. As an example, clarity is used to describe the amount of natural imperfections and inclusions on a diamond; color indicates the amount of colors in a diamond (note that a diamond with less color will be more valuable); the cut refers to the diamond shape and the carat weight is used to measure the diamond’s weight and not its size.
