Gold purity is measured in carats(ct) ranging from 8ct to 24ct gold. The purest gold is a soft malleable metal and is rarely used for jewellery making as it is susceptible to breaking easily or scratching. To counter this most jewellery is mixed with other metals to make the perfect hardness to create durable pieces.
