What is Gold 750?
To fully grasp what gold 750 is you need an appreciation of what gold hallmarks are and why they are important. ‘750’ gold is just one of many different types of hallmarks
If a gold product bears the hallmark ‘750’, then your gold has been tested and classed as 18 carat or 75 per cent pure.
The remaining 25 per cent of the item is composed of different metals such as nickel, copper, or in some cases silver. Therefore an 18 carat piece is an alloy of Gold and other metals with a minimum Gold content of 75%.
Pure Gold is quite soft and malleable so Gold jewellery that is designed for everyday wear contains additional, harder metals, usually of lesser value than Gold, to make the item more hard wearing.
18 Carat Gold is popular for the production of mid-range luxury jewellery items, particularly in Italy.
The colour of 750 Gold can vary markedly from a silvery or ‘white gold’ to a deep coppery tone or ‘rose gold’. The actual gold content remains the same but the colour will vary depending on the type of metal added to the alloy.
In order to calculate a price for a jewellery item, the live gold price is applied to the weight of pure or fine gold in an item, rather than the overall weight of the product. For example, if the spot price of gold was £1000 per troy ounce, and you have one ounce of 18 carat gold, your gold would be roughly worth £750.
