What is the difference between karat weights of gold?
24K gold is 100% pure gold and is too soft for jewelry. Therefore, it is mixed with different alloys to increase durability and hardness. 18K gold is 75% pure gold and 25% alloys. Each karat is equal to roughly 4.17% of the total of the alloy. For more information about gold, visit our Metal Education on Gold.
What is the difference between white gold and platinum?
White gold is pure gold that has been mixed with alloys to make it appear to be white. Platinum is a pure metal that is naturally white in color and is stronger and more durable than white gold. It is also more rare and, thus, more valuable. For more information about white gold and platinum, visit our Metal Education on Metals.
What is the difference between natural and cultured pearls?
A pearl is formed when an irritant, such as sand or a parasite, becomes lodged in the shell of an oyster. The oyster deposits layers of a semi-translucent crystalline material called "nacre" around the intruder, where it builds up in layers like the rings of a tree. This process of building up can continue for years, resulting in a pearl. In nature, pearls take many years to develop and often have irregular shapes. In any shape, natural pearls are rare and very costly. Cultured pearls are formed when an artificial irritant, like a round bead, is introduced into an oyster's body. For more information about cultured pearls, visit our Pearl Education on Cultured Pearls.
Does Henry D sell treated gemstones?
Yes, most gemstones in the industry have been treated. Emeralds are oiled or waxed to enhance their color and increase their durability. All gemstones are usually heated to bring out a brighter color. Blue topaz may be treated with irradiation, and blue sapphires may be treated with diffusion. However, all treatments are designed to enhance the gemstone's natural beauty, and all are standard in the jewelry industry. Fine untreated stones are so rare, in fact, that they often come with a certificate stating such, and can cost more per carat than a fine diamond. For more information about gemstones, visit our Gemstone Education on Colored Gemstones.
