Metal Guide

Gold purity is a crucial factor to consider when purchasing jewellery or investing in this precious metal. It determines the value, durability, and appearance of the piece. Here's why gold purity matters -

  • Value

    The purity of gold directly affects its value. Higher karat gold, such as 24k or 22k, contains a higher percentage of pure gold and is therefore more valuable than lower karatages. Investing in higher purity gold ensures that you are getting the most value for your money.

  • Durability

    Pure gold is too soft for practical use in jewellery, so it is often alloyed with other metals to increase its strength and durability. Understanding the karatage of your gold jewellery ensures that it can withstand daily wear and tear, maintaining its beauty for years to come.

  • Appearance

    Different karats of gold produce varying shades of colour, from rich yellow to pale hues or even rose and white gold. Knowing the purity of your gold helps you select the colour that best suits your style and preferences, ensuring that your jewellery complements your personal taste and enhances your overall look.

Jewellery is not typically made in 24 karat gold because pure gold, at 24 karats, is too soft and malleable to withstand the rigours of everyday wear. Therefore, it is prone to scratching, bending, and losing its shape over time. To enhance its durability and strength, gold is alloyed with other metals like silver, copper, or zinc. This results in lower karatages such as 22k or 18k, where the gold content is still high but mixed with a proportion of other metals.

At Peynare, we ensure that our jewellery is crafted with the highest quality materials, which is why we offer pieces in 22k and 18k gold. This ensures both durability and value for our customers. We do not sell jewellery of purity lower than 18k because we prioritize quality and longevity. Lower karat gold, such as 14k or 10k, contains a higher proportion of alloy, which may compromise the integrity and beauty of the piece over time. By maintaining a minimum purity of 18k, we guarantee that our jewellery meets the highest standards of craftsmanship and longevity.

Always Crafted to Perfection

18k gold is 75% pure gold mixed with other metals making it durable and suitable for everyday wear. Its slightly lower gold content allows for a wider range of colours, from classic yellow to white and rose. Whereas, 22k gold contains 91.67% pure gold. Its higher gold content gives it a rich, deep hue, and a luxurious feel.

While 18k gold offers durability and versatility, 22k gold boasts unparalleled richness and authenticity. Peynare jewellery ensures timeless beauty and quality craftsmanship in every piece.

The Importance of Hallmarking

Hallmarking is a crucial aspect of the jewellery industry, providing consumers with assurance of the quality, purity, and authenticity of precious metals used in jewellery. A hallmark is a mark or stamp applied to precious metal items that indicates its composition, purity, and the manufacturer's identity. This practice dates back centuries and has become an integral part of the jewellery trade worldwide.

  • Ensuring Quality and Purity

    One of the primary reasons for hallmarking is to guarantee the quality and purity of precious metals. Different countries have established hallmarking systems. These standards ensure that consumers receive jewellery of the stated purity, providing them with confidence in their purchases.

  • Consumer Protection

    Hallmarking also serves as a form of consumer protection, helping buyers make informed decisions when purchasing jewellery. By checking the hallmark, consumers can verify the authenticity and quality of the metal used in the piece. This transparency fosters trust between consumers and jewellers, reducing the risk of fraud or misrepresentation.

  • Promoting Fair Trade Practices

    Hallmarking systems often include regulations regarding ethical sourcing and responsible production practices. For example, some countries require jewellers to use recycled metals or adhere to fair trade standards. By supporting hallmarking, consumers can contribute to sustainable and ethical practices within the jewellery industry.
