24 karat gold contains 100% pure gold. The price of a gram of pure gold, 24 carats, depends exclusively on the price of an ounce of gold. The 24-carat denomination is no longer used in France in commercial transactions, but “999”, since gold is considered never to be chemically pure.

Gold is too soft a metal to be used in jewelry. 24 karat (999/1000) gold jewelry is easily deformed. It is for this reason that in Europe the majority of gold jewelry is made with 18 karats and 9 karats. In India, on the contrary, pure gold is valued for the manufacture of adornment, as a form of investment, the jewelry not being worn.
