18k Gold Wedding Bands

Gold is a precious metal that has been used for jewelry-making as far back as ancient times. Although it is currently used for a variety of other purposes, its malleability and beauty make it a good choice for jewelry. The purity of gold in rings is measured in karats. Gold is often mixed with various types of metals, such as copper, silver, or palladium. These metals help to make rings more durable. The higher the number of karats, the purer the gold. A ring made of 18k gold contains 75 percent gold content and is typically used for higher-quality or fine jewelry; however, it is softer than 14k or 10k gold and will generally scratch more easily. Because of the amount of gold, however, and the more vivid coloring, an 18k gold band is often a highly desired option.
