### What is measured in carats?

A carat is a unit of weight for precious stones, which is
equivalent to 200 milligrams. In terms of precious stones, they are
described in ¼ increments.
In terms of gold, Karat (K) is the number of parts, by
weight, of gold. The higher the percentage of pure
gold, the higher the karat. For e.g., 14 karat gold
is 58% gold, 18 karat gold is 75% gold and 24k gold is pure. Both
gold and diamonds/emeralds/rubies/sapphires and some semi precious
stones are measured in carats.
