It is depend on the other materials that are mixed into the gold. Every mix has a different dencity. 10K Green Gold 11.03 10K Yellow Gold 11.57 10K White Gold 11.07 10K Red Gold 11.59

pure gold (24k) vs 41.7% (10k) gold.. you decide.

10k 512 means, you have a 10k gold ring with 5.12carat's total gem weight.

10k gold = 41.67% gold 14k gold = 58.33% gold So 14k is the higher grade.

how much is a penny weight of 10k gold worth

It means that the gold in the bracelet contains less than of a 10k caliber, hence it is not gold.

If jewelry is marked 10k only, It means it's 10karet gold. If it say 10k ge or hge, it means it is gold plated.

Its made out of gold. haha

An ounce of 10K gold is around 452.00 dollars right now. The price of gold goes up and down daily.

It means the ring is 10K real gold.

"It means Gold Rolled Plate, it is not solid gold but plated in 10k." thats not correct

10K is the minimum US standard and is 41.6% gold with other base metal. 9K is available in Europe and contains 37.5 % gold.

10K indicates the gold purity. "FG" could mean "filled gold" meaning not solid gold but just gold on the outside.

I don't know what you mean by, "better", but 10K has less gold in it than 14K does. By the way, 24K gold is more or less pure gold.

Not a lot. 10KP indicates that the ring is plated with 10K gold. There is very little actual gold. Above not true, 10kp means 10k (plumb) meaning equal to 10k. So value would be that of 10k (41.6% pure gold (10 parts out of 24).

I have same question? Is 10k top the same as 10k. I have 2 pins that say this.... I will know later because i order a mizar gold tester today. I write back with my findings.

10k rgp means 10 karat gold rolled gold plate. In other words, it's gold PLATED.

maybe new gold im trying to find a proper answer as i have a 10k gold cross that also has the letters ng

10% by gold weight gold filled

Gold purity in jewelry is represented by how much -- on a scale of 24K being pure gold -- of the metal is gold. A 10K gold 'batch' will always be a 10K gold batch -- only 10/24ths of the batch is gold, whether solid or melted. And the same is true of a 14K gold 'batch'. In order to 'upgrade' 10K yellow gold metal to 14K yellow gold metal, the 10K metal must be melted, separated from whatever other metal is in the 'batch', then added to less other metal in order for the same gold to be 'upgraded' to 14K. Another option is to replace the 10K setting with a 14K setting.

There is a larger percentage of gold in a 14K piece of jewelry than a 10K piece.

At 950 Gold Market , 12 grams of 10k is worth $152

Yes a coin could be struck in 10k gold, but the U.S. has never made one.
