18ct Yellow & White Gold

The carat of gold and why JUNI 's choice is 18ct?

What is a Carat?

A Carat is a measure of the purity of gold with pure gold being 24 carats. It is oftened confused with weight however it refers to the percentage of gold within an item.

For example, 9ct Gold contains 37.5% pure gold along with other elements sure as silver & copper. Whereas,

18ct Gold contains 75% pure gold and therefore is more durable and longer lasting than 9ct Gold. Due to the amount of gold percentage, 18ct gold will generally have a richer colour than 9ct gold.

Therefore due to its longevity & colour, we use 18ct Gold for all our engagement rings. However if you wish to have any of our designs in 9ct Gold please just get in touch.
