9 CARAT GOLD:
9ct gold is the most common gold used in South Africa; however it is vastly unheard of in other parts of the world.
People have heard many myths about 9K gold such as “it will tarnish”. 9K gold is the most affordable form of gold; it has a light yellow hue due to it mostly being made up of other metals.
The composition of 9K gold is as follows: 37.5% pure gold (hence the 375 stamp) 42.5% silver and 20% copper. Our 9K yellow gold is nickel free.
9K gold is very durable. It is the first choice for gold jewellery as it is strong, doesn’t dent or scratch and doesn’t wear.
All jewellery needs to be maintained and polished to prevent it from going dull.
