Gold Karat

Karat (abbreviated as "K" or "Kt", and not to be confused as "carat" or "ct" 
which is the weight measure of diamonds and coloured gemstones) indicates the
purity of gold on scale of 1 to 24 karat gold is the purest form of gold available,
that is, it is 99.99% pure.

Around the world, it has become common practice, and in some countries
it is legally mandated, to indicate the purity of gold in jewelry by stamping
a tiny mark on the jewelry (if space allows). In North America
and Japan, the purity marks are stated in Karat, e.g. 18K, 14K, 10K..., in 
Europe, the purity marks are stated in percentage, e.g. 999, 925, 750...
Both Methods are widely used in Asia and other parts of the worlds.

Allows are mixtures of other more valuable and less valuable metals which are
added to the gold to change its characteristics, such as hardness, color and price

The following table will define how the most common international gold markings are to 
be understood.
