What is the difference between 24-karat and 22-karat gold?
In general, the purity of gold is measured with the help of a unit of measurement karat (K) is used to represent. Karat values generally increase with purer gold, With a purity of 99.9%, 24-carat gold is thought to be the purest type of gold (123).
In contrast, 22-karat gold is made up of 22 parts gold, 2 parts copper, and other metals like zinc. This makes it more durable and ideal for jewelry manufacture than 24-carat gold.
In a nutshell, the purity and makeup of 24-karat and 22-karat gold are the primary differences between them. Although 24-carat gold is thought to be the finest version of the metal, it is too soft to be used in jewelry. However, 22-karat gold is more robust and hardy.
