The language of Karats: Understanding 9K, 14K, 18K, 24K Gold

Pure gold, also known as 24 karat gold, is inherently too soft for crafting durable jewelry. To enhance its strength, it's blended with various metals, determining its karat value. Imagine this process as a recipe; the karat signifies how many parts out of 24 consist of pure gold—a cherished element throughout history.

Different karat values offer distinct qualities. For instance, 9 karat gold contains a lower percentage of pure gold, making it more affordable and robust due to a higher ratio of other metals. Despite its durability, it might be slightly more prone to tarnishing, easily remedied by polishing.

On the other hand, 14 karat gold strikes a balance between purity and durability, offering a higher gold content compared to 9 karat while maintaining reasonable toughness for daily wear.

At Cremilde Bispo Jewellery, our primary focus revolves around crafting exquisite pieces using 18k Gold. Renowned for its higher gold content, 18k Gold not only exudes an unparalleled golden brilliance and allure but also represents a sound investment choice. Its purity and intrinsic value make it a lasting symbol of elegance and worth, offering not just beauty but also long-term investment potential.

 While we specialize in 18k gold for its luminous beauty and purity, we understand the allure of different karat options. Should you desire a bespoke piece in 9k, 14k, or any other karat or hue, we welcome you to connect with us. Let's collaborate on creating a distinctive and cherished piece tailored to your preferences.
