Gold is a highly sought after precious metal. Pure gold is too soft to withstand everyday wear so it is alloyed with other metals including silver, copper, nickel and zinc to make it more durable. Karat is the term used to measure the purity of gold. The higher the karatage, the purer the gold.
The alloys mixed with pure gold influence its colour. 18 karat gold will always consist of 75% pure gold, but depending on what alloys it is mixed with, may appear yellow, white or rose gold in colouration.
Jewellery is called gold plated when a layer of gold has been deposited onto the surface of another metal, usually copper or silver. Gold may tarnish but it can easily be restored with a polish from your local jeweller or supermarket.
