Are you planning to purchase gold jewelry? Well gold jewelry does not only make you look beautiful but is also a great investment option. And since they are so expensive you have to take quite a lot of things into consideration before purchasing them. Before you purchase any piece of gold jewelry you will have to know how pure it is. While 24k gold is pure gold 18k gold is 75% pure. 14 k gold is 58.3% pure and 12k gold is 50% pure.

If you are planning to get some gold filled jewelries you need to know that the newer gold filled jewelry pieces have markings indicating what type of gold has been used for the layer. The marking also indicates the quantity of gold used. If the marking is 1/20 12K G.F the jewelry is 1/20th 12K in weight. You can also get god plated jewelries if you want to.
