, a gold karat is 1/24 part, or 4.1667% of the whole, and the karat weight number indicates how many parts of gold to parts of alloy are in a piece.
24k gold is 100 parts gold or 100%.
16 karat gold is 16 parts gold to 8 parts other material for a pure gold percentage of 67%.
  • 18k Yellow gold - 75% gold(Au) 
  • 22k Yellow gold -91.7%gold(Au)
