The video discusses gold jewelry and how a person can tell how much it’s worth. The information is helpful to people who intend to sell their gold items to a gold buying store, as they’ll know how much to expect for it.
The speaker talks about gold and how the purest form is 24 karat. However, some manufacturers mix the gold with other metals and elements, and that mixture makes it less valuable. The mixing makes the product stronger because gold is such a soft material, however.
One way to tell the value of a gold piece of jewelry is to look at the markings inside of it. A pair of glasses can help to see the karat rating of the jewelry. K, KT, and CT are all abbreviations that mean karat. European countries are more like to use the CT form of the term.
The inside of the jewelry should have a label on it that tells the person exactly how much the jewelry is worth. The higher the karat of gold, the more valuable the item will be. Right now, 14k pieces are much more valuable than 10k pieces. The 15k version of gold is an antique form that is no longer made. A piece like that will be extremely valuable for that reason. More information about assessing the value of gold is available in the video.
