Here’s how to check the purity of gold
The government has made an app to determine the purity of the gold. With the BIS Care app, customers can check the purity of gold. Through this app, you can not only check the purity of gold, but can also make any complaint related to it.
24 carat gold is the purest
24 carat gold is considered to be the purest. However, jewelry cannot be made from this gold because it is very soft. Therefore, 22 carat gold is mostly used in making jewelry. 24 carat gold is 99.9 percent pure and 22 carat is about 91 percent pure. Jewelry is prepared by mixing 9% other metals like copper, silver, zinc in 22 carat gold. Whereas 24 carat gold is brilliant, but it cannot be used to make ornaments. That is the reason why shopkeepers sell gold jewelry in 22 carats.
Buy gold only with hallmark
While buying gold, customers must make sure of its purity. Gold jewelry should be bought only after seeing the hallmark. The hallmark is the government’s guarantee of purity of gold. The Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) is the only agency in India that determines the hallmark. Hallmarking scheme works under the Bureau of Indian Standards Act, rules and regulation.
Purity is directly proportional to carat
Hall marks are given by ISO to identify the purity of gold. 999 on 24 carat gold, 958 on 23 carat, 916 on 22 carat, 875 on 21 carat and 750 on 18 carat. Most of the gold is sold in 22 carats, while some people also use 18 carats. 24 carat is the apex standard. Higher the value of carat more is the purity.
