Mens Solid Gold Cufflinks

Gold is one of the world’s most valuable commodities and is particularly valued in the manufacture of jewellery. This precious metal is normally marked with a karat value with 24 karats denoting pure gold and 9 karats 37.5% gold. The remaining metal, copper for example, is added to improve strength and wear. To work out the percentage of pure gold in an article simply divide its karat value by 0.24. By way of example 18 karat gold is 75% pure gold. As with a karat mark a ‘375’ mark (or other applicable figure) is also a manufacturer’s mark. A genuine hallmark authenticates an item as meeting legal purity standards and can only be added after testing by one of the four UK Assay Offices each having its own unique symbol. It is against the law to sell gold weighing more than one gram unless hallmarked. Where gold pieces are less than 10 karats, a number indicating the actual purity percent is often used instead of a karat amount, as in the case of the "375" stamp. Dishonest traders may add marks such as ‘375’ on imitation gold or of below context.
