What is gold jewellery?

18 carat gold contains 75% gold, with the rest made up of other more durable metal alloys used to add colour and strength. White metals will be added to create white gold with copper added to create rose gold. 18ct yellow gold is appreciated for its radiance and is much warmer and brighter in tone than 14ct and 9ct gold – but with its high percentage of gold, it still comes at a higher price. 

14 carat gold has about 58.5% pure gold and has a warm yellow hue. It is more affordable than 18ct gold, making it a popular choice.

9 carat gold has 37.5% pure gold; it is the most affordable form of gold jewellery and portrays a light yellow hue. Its higher percentage of other metals, makes it stronger and more durable and particularly suited to the creation of jewellery.

The jewellery that we sell is either 9 carat or 18 carat gold - although occasionally we can supply jewellery manufactured in 14 carat.  Our jewellery is hallmarked at the Edinburgh Assay Office.
