All that glitters are not gold

A karat is the unit used to measure the purity of gold: the higher karatage signifying a purer gold. The highest possible ranking is 24-karat gold, otherwise known as pure gold and most commonly sold in coins or bars as the metal is too soft for jewellery. Dubai jewellers most commonly use 22-karat for chains, bangles and plain rings, and the more durable 18-karat gold for diamond rings and other precious stone-studded pieces.
