What is 18 carat gold or 18k gold plated?

18 carat gold is also known as 18/24 gold or 18k gold plated. That is, for every 24 parts by weight of the alloy, 18 are pure gold and the rest are other metals, which give it the hardness and the ideal color for jewelry.

The pure gold of 24 carats is too soft for the manufacture of a jewel and the result would be broken very easily. That’s why gold is mixed with other metals to make it more resistant. 18-carat gold contains 75.01% pure gold and offers perfect results for jewelry. In Nathnit we only work with 18 carat gold, that is, the best quality for jewelry.
