What is 22ct Gold?
22ct gold jewellery consists of 22 parts pure gold and the remainder made up of 2 parts other metals. This type of gold is commonly used in high end jewellery making and often popular in the Indian and Asian markets for the brighter yellow look and purity. In 22 carat gold, 91.67% is pure gold. The remaining 8.33% comprises of alternative metals such as silver, zinc, nickel or other alloys. Mixing with additional metals improve the density of the gold therefore making the jewellery more durable.
Its a great belief and now common terminology to associate 22ct Gold jewellery with the term 'Indian Gold'. The term simply implies that the jewellery is to be of the highest gold purity and specification and hallmarked to confirm its quality. The term links back to South Asian countries such as India who have a high demand of the most purest of gold standards of their jewellery, so popular in fact, this marks India and the South Asian markets as the largest buyers and manufactuers of 22 carat gold in the world. It is no surprise the phrase 'Indian Gold' is now used in common jewellery terminology given the dominance for so long.
