First of all you need to know that the gold content found in jewerly is measured in carats (k), with pure gold being designated as 24k gold. Pure gold is too soft for jewelry use and is typically hardened by alloying with silver, copper, or other metals. Gold jewelry is commonly sold in lower measurements of 22k gold, 18k gold, 14k gold and 10k gold. A lower "k" indicates a higher percentage of copper or silver is in the gold alloy, with copper being the more commonly used metal.

14K gold is commonly used in the making of gold jewelry today. 18K gold that contains 25% copper is commonly found in antique gold jewelry and has a distinct, though not dominant, copper cast, creating an attractively warm color. The high price of gold jewelry is due to its rarity. The amount of gold found in an individual piece of gold jewelry is how it is priced. 24 karat gold being pure gold, would be the highest valued gold jewelry and lower karats gold jewelry would cost less.
