Does Gold Price Vary Between 10K, 14K, 18K & 24K Gold?

Gold price varies based on a lot of things, including current stock market conditions and current supply and demand. If you are thinking now is a good time to sell your gold because the spot gold price is high, you could be wondering just how much your gold is worth. Of course, we do look at current spot price of gold when buying precious metals. We also look at a variety of things, including whether you have 10K gold, 14K gold, 18K gold or 24K gold. Regardless, if you have gold jewelry, gold bars or gold coins that you're interested in selling, you can get paid the highest gold price today by visiting us at Hilltop Pawn.

Does Gold Price Vary Based on Gold Content?

When it comes to to precious metal price that you will be paid for your gold jewelry, be aware that gold content does make a big difference. Basically, the value of gold is based on pure gold. When you see the gold spot price, this is based on a troy ounce of gold (24K gold), such as gold bullion (which a lot of people purchase as investment decisions).

​Of course, we buy physical gold bullion and other 24K gold, and we pay top dollar for it. However, we also pay the highest current price of gold for items with lower gold content. 

For example, a lot of jewelry isn't made from 24K gold. It just isn't practical for many reasons. For one thing, 24K gold is very expensive, making 24K gold jewelry unattainable for a lot of average people. Plus, gold products that are made from pure gold are actually quite soft and malleable, which doesn't make sense for jewelry, since it can be damaged very easily.

This means 10K, 14K & 18K gold jewelry is very popular. 10K gold is a popular choice among those who want "real" jewelry but who are on a budget. It's also more durable because it has a higher percentage of other alloys. 14K gold is a nice balance between affordability and the shine of real gold, and 18K gold is a special option that really shines. If you're wondering about today's gold price and the live price of gold for your 10K, 14K or 18K jewelry, we invite you to visit us at Hilltop Pawn.

How Do I Know the Gold Content in My Piece of Jewelry?

In many cases, the gold content is printed somewhere on the piece, such as the inside of a ring. However, there are various reasons why the gold content might not be stamped on your piece. If you purchased a custom made piece of gold jewelry, the jewelry maker might not have stamped it. Additionally, if you have had your ring resized at some point or another, the imprint might no longer be visible.
