However, if you're trying to estimate the value of your gold, checking for a brand is a quick and easy way to do so. Coins and ingots are usually made of 22 or 24 carat gold, with 24-carat gold being the preferred and most valuable investment vehicle. Something like 22 or 18 karat gold has the same shine and color, but with the added hardness that comes from combining gold with other metals. If gold doesn't have a mark or can't be searched, its purity should be determined using a more scientific chemical test.
It provides current charts of the price of 24-carat gold (including the bid price and the selling price) and graphs of the historical price of 24,000 gold (fixed price of gold in London). In general, the most commonly used karat gold is 24k, 22k, 18k, 14k, 10k, 6k, etc., while 24-karat gold is considered pure gold. Carat gold has intense colors due to the mixture of different metals, such as copper, silver or zinc. When karat gold shows red, mix some copper with gold; when it shows light red, mix some copper and a little silver into gold.
Gold jewelry is usually less pure, since adding other metal alloys can strengthen it and prevent wear and tear.
