The Avoirdupois Weight System has 28.35grams to an ounce.

The Troy Weight System has 31.10grams to an ounce.

### How much is a 14 karat gold necklace worth if weight is 1 oz?

If you have a 14k gold chain it is only worth 65% of what 1 oz
of gold is worth
because 14k g.f. Is only 20% of the weight of a 1 oz chain
14k solid gold is 65% of a 1 oz gold chain
24k solid gold is a !00% of solid gold
if an oz of 24k solid gold is at a $1000 an oz
then a 14k solid gold chain is only worth $650
a 14k g.f. Chain is solid gold with an alloy for hardning pored
over a metal core
14k solid gold is solid gold mixed with an alloy such as copper
for hardning for longer ware
24k solid gold is solid gold with no alloys at all and is a very
soft metal

### How many grams of 18 karet gold in an ounce of 24 karet gold?

There is no 18 Karat gold in an ounce of 24 Karat gold because
24 Karat gold is pure. 18 Karat gold is alloyed with another metal
to make it wear longer. There are approx. 31.1 grams of 24 karat
gold in a troy oz. A troy oz. is smaller than a regular oz. It
would take more than 31.1 grams of 18 Karat gold to equal the pure
gold content of 1 oz. of 24 Karat gold.
