Also, what precisely is a gold karat? And how can you choose between the various gold purity levels and the advantages and disadvantages of every karat grade?

Karat or Carat

A carat is a weight unit used to determine the size of a gemstone like a diamond. A karat is a measurement that indicates the percentage of gold in an alloy out of 24 parts; for example, 18K gold is 18/24 parts gold. However, it is also allowed to use carat (rather than karat) to describe the purity of gold.


How Gold Purity Is Measured?

The purity of gold is measured in karats, with the most common categories being 24, 22, 18, 14, and 10 karats.

Gold purity is often expressed in percentages and parts per thousand. To convert karats to percentages, divide the number of karats by 24 and multiply the result by 100.

The karat system is used to define the purity of gold. The karat system indicates the percentage of pure gold in a piece of gold jewelry. The purity level of a gold ring or other item of jewelry is determined by the amount of pure gold in it.

  • 10k gold:- 10k gold is often used for many kinds of affordable jewelry. Up until recently, 10k gold, which contains 41.7 percent gold, was the lowest level of jewelry that could be lawfully sold as gold in the United States. Even though 10k gold is long lasting, it has a duller appearance.

You can absolutely use 10K for your grillz. This will make the alloy mixture very durable and if you work with a high end grillz manufacturer, the 10K yellow gold will look identical to the 14k.  

  • 14K gold:- 14K gold is the ideal metal to use if you want to add diamonds or any other gems to your grillz. 14K Gold is softer than 10K, but more durable than 18K which provides security for any stones that will be added to the grillz.

The composition of 14 karat gold is 58.3 percent gold and 41.7 percent alloy, or 14 out of 24 parts gold. In the United States, the United Kingdom, and other Western countries, 14K gold is the most popular gold for grillz and other wearable jewelry.

  • 18k gold:- 18K gold costs more than 14K gold, and we only recommend going with 18K gold if you are having your grillz made in yellow gold. If you order 18K white gold griillz and there is no rhodium plating finish, the metal will look yellowish. 18K gold is one of the less widely utilized forms of gold. It's 75 percent gold and 25 percent metal alloy. Because 18 of the 24 pieces that make up this form of gold are pure gold, it is referred to as 18 karat gold.

The color of 18k gold is somewhat brighter than that of 14k gold. When you think of gold, the 18k color is most likely what comes to mind. It's a deep golden tint that looks fantastic with diamonds, but the metal is relatively soft compared to 14k, so we recommend having the stones set by an experienced diamond setter or you may lose some stones over time from your diamond grillz piece.

18k yellow gold is our ideal metal choice for any 18K Yellow Gold Grillz made in solid gold.

  • 24k gold:- There is no alloy in 24k gold. Its completely pure gold color and bright yellow color are not very popular in the United States or other western countries, but they are quite popular in Asian countries such as India, China, Pakistan, and Bangladesh.

Gold in the 24-karat range is exceedingly precious and expensive. It's great for family treasures or only-worn-once-in-a-while things. Grillz and other jewelry are rarely made in 24k gold. It's mostly utilized to amass riches. Coins, bars, electrical equipment, and medical devices are commonly made with 24k gold.

You may put 24k gold in your grillz for a beautiful aesthetic, but it's not recommended for everyday usage. It is usually reserved for exceptional events.

24K Gold is so soft that wearing a 24K gold grillz piece daily will result in the metal moving over time and not fitting as well. We also do not recommend setting any stones into any 24k gold jewelry, especially not 24k grillz.
