How to identify gold to sell
Look for a carat stamp on the gold jewellery
If a piece of jewellery has a stamp on it that says ‘9ct’ or ‘375’ this means that the piece is 9 carat gold or 37.5 % part gold and the rest is made up of different types of alloys and metals to harden or colour the gold jewellery.
The weight of gold is measured in carats with 24 carat gold being the purest gold possible. The number of carats corresponds to the percentage of actual gold in the gold jewellery. So, if a piece of gold jewellery is made up of 41.7% gold, 41.7% of 24 is 10 which means the gold jewellery has 10 carats.
Carat Hallmarks or Stamps:
8 carat: 8ct or 333
9 carat: 9ct or 375
10 carat: 10ct or 417
14 carat: 14ct or 585
18 carat: 15ct or 750
22 carat: 22ct or kt 916
.9999 (fine gold or pure gold) is called 4 9’s fine gold which is usually, but not solely, restricted to Gold coins or Gold bullion.
Look for gold plating
Use a magnifying glass to look at your piece of gold jewellery. If the gold has started rubbing off in places to reveal a silver colour underneath, it is not gold jewellery. It is only gold plated.
Expose the gold to nitric acid
Get scientific and buy a nitric acid test for your gold jewellery. Using nitric acid on real gold will have no effect on the gold while fake gold will darken.
Look at the colour of the gold jewellery
Gold jewellery’s appearance is more satin and lighter while fake gold looks yellow and shiny.
