Important facts about gold appraisals

gold experts checking gold bracelet with professional loupeThe value of gold and other precious metals like silver, platinum and a palladium depends on two major facts. The weight and the purity of the precious metal. This two facts are the most important price building facts to estimate the value. Generally it can be said, the higher the weight, the higher the price. If also gemstones like diamonds, rubies, sapphires or emeralds are involved, the value estimation is more complex and has to be accompanied by a gemologist. The purity is from great importance for determining the price. Because gold in its pure form (24 karat) is very soft, other metals are admixed to create a harder composition that rings, necklaces and brooches e.g. are more stable so they can’t be deformed easily. By the addition of other metals such as copper, nickel, or silver for example different purity degrees are created. The purity of gold is based on international standards, always indicated in karat: 10 karat gold, 14 karat gold, 18 karat gold, or even 20 karat gold. The number of karats indicate the ratio of gold compared to the amount of the other used metals. 24 karat gold is pure gold, therefore it’s the most expensive and finest form of gold. The lower the purity level, the lower the gold items’ value. An 18 karat scrap gold brooch with a weight of 5 pennyweights reflects a material value of $219.4, the same brooch with the same weight but just made of 14 karat gold reflects only a value of $171.10. This example shows impressively the significant price difference of different gold purities.
