In our country, fourteen and eighteen carats fine alloyed gold is the most common. Alloying is needed, since pure gold is too soft and malleable. By adding other metals it will be harder, and we are able to produce different coloured raw material too.
Eighteen carat fine alloyed gold has a higher finesse, since it has more gold in it than the other one. While it’s used for casual jewelry mostly, fourteen carats fine gold is good for everyday use jewelry, thanks to its hardness. Since we wear the engagement rings all day, it’s practical to choose fourteen carats fine alloy for them.
