What is Hallmarking? What is a Carat or a Karat? Is 9K or 22K more valuable?
Hallmarking is quality control which dates back to the 14th century when Goldsmiths took their wares to Gold Guilds throughout Europe where metal was tested (or assayed) for purity.
All Gold will be stamped (hallmarked) based on the standard in the country it is produced.
Technically the term for grading Gold is Karat (K/Ct). The lowest Karat grading is 8 (also known as 333, which tells us how much gold is in present, in this case 33.3%)
9K (or 375) is 37.5% Gold and is common in Australia countries.
10K is also recognised as 416 (41.6% Gold).
14K or 585 is 58.5% gold
15K, or 625 is 62.5 % gold Discontinued over 80years ago. A good indicator that the piece is old.)
18K or 750 is 75% gold. (Most quality pieces are 18ct. Minimum standard in Italy.)
22K or 916 is 91.6% gold (mainly Asia, Middle East. Very soft)
24K or 1000 is PURE gold (too soft for most jewellery manufacture)
When checking for hallmarks, some classifications mean that the metal is not solid Gold (stamps like EP, CP, HGP are Electroplate, Gold Plate, etc). Often this means that the Gold has been rolled and is not of high quality.
