Gold Karat Information

Since ancient times, the purity of gold has been defined by the term karat, which is 1/24 part of pure gold by weight. Pure gold is equivalent to 24K. Gold purity may also be described by its fineness, which is the amount of pure gold in parts per 1000. For example, a gold ring containing 583 fine gold has 583 parts (58.3%) gold and 417 parts (41.7%) of other base metals. Federal Trade Commission rules require that all jewelry items sold in the United States as gold shall be described by "a correct designation of the karat fineness of the alloy."

Weighing Precious Metals

The weight of a piece of jewelry is a factor that helps to determine its value. It is important because it is an indication of the purity in an item of jewelry. While Grams (g) and pennyweights (dwt) are the units of weight most commonly used in weighing precious metals, Pawn Smart uses the pennyweight standard (dwt). Precious metals are almost always weighted in the troy system of weights, where one pound troy equals twelve troy ounces and twenty pennyweights equals one troy ounce.

Diamond Grading Process

The value of a diamond is primarily

determined by its 4C's:

CARAT: how much does the diamond weigh?

COLOR: does the diamond look yellow?

CLARITY: can you see any 'stuff' in the diamond?

CUT: how well does a diamond reflect light?

Once these four factors are known, we can determine how much your diamond is worth.
