Why is 22K gold Jewellery better than 24K gold Jewellery?

Gold has been discovered thousands of years ago and has since been one of rust-resistant, corrosion-resistant, and non-tarnish able precious metal associated with prestige and honour. The 24K/999 Finesse refers to the purest gold in a natural form making it ductile(ability to be drawn into wires) and most malleable(ability to be hammered into sheets) metal. Many products, such as ornaments and jewellery, derived from gold, differ in the purity of gold. 

In 22k gold, 22 parts out of 24 are pure gold and the other two parts are metals like silver, zinc or other alloys. These metals make the texture of gold harder and the jewellery durable. Soft gold like 24k gold will not be able to take much physical pressure, and thus the jewellery will lose its full beauty soon. 

Also, 22k gold jewellery is more affordable than 24k gold. Overtime, depreciation while selling your old 22k jewellery will also be comparatively lower.

All Our Traditional Gold Jewellery is 990 Finesse. Pure Gold 999 Fineness is so soft that it could easily lose its firm grip on precious stones allowing it to fall off making it unsuitable for regular forms of jewellery. If you are interested in long term investment we highly recommended buying 999 fineness gold coins and bars.
