Pure Gold

Make sure your item is worth testing. Then use a magnet and see, if it sticks to the magnet immediately, it is NOT gold. If it has a light magnetic attraction, there is still a chance your item is gold.

If the item passes the magnet test, buy a nitric acid test. Rub your item firmly on the testing stone that comes with the kit, and drip a single drop of acid onto the rubbing. If the rubbing stays strong, your item is gold; and if the rubbing changes color to orange, your item is likely a lower carat than the acid you used. Try a lower acid. However, if the rubbing turns green or fades off immediately, your item is not gold.

916 KDM Jewels
Gold jewellery from certain places is marked with KDM stamp. It means that the jewellery was soldered with Cadmium. Cadmium is nothing but Kadium. Kadium denotes the purity of gold. KDM was habitually used in joining of gold jewelry for its good properties of liquidity and melting at lower temperatures. Purity of gold represents the percentage of gold in the metal. KDM has a logo and certificate with KDM mark. The real gold mark is hallmarked logo. Hallmarked jewellery has logo with 22K or 18K gold. Now-a-days, jewelers are using gold solders, which are free from Cadmium.

4Cs of Diamonds
Diamonds are calculated by its four Cs Colour, Cut, Carat and Clarity.

Colorless diamonds are the most attractive since they allow the most refraction of light. Diamonds also come in a wide range of other colours such as red, blue, green and bright yellow. These are marked as Z+ and are known as fancy diamonds. Diamond starts its colour with the alphabet ‘D’.
G,H,I,J--->Near colorless
K,L,M----->Faint Yellow
N,R------->Very Light Yellow
S,Z------->Light Yellow

Cut is most likely significant and demanding of the four Cs to understand. The brightness of a diamond depends a lot on its cut. The most accepted cut for a diamond is the round brilliant cut.

Is the unit of weight for the diamond. A carat is further subdivided in 100 points (0.01 cart = 1 point). One carat is equal to 0.20 grams. Value per carat increases with carat size, because larger rough diamonds occur less regularly, In other words, 2 half-carat diamonds taken together will not cost as much as 1 one-carat diamond, as the one-carat stone is more rare.

It is very familiar for diamonds to be formed with little imperfections. These are known as ‘inclusions’. A diamond’s clarity ranking is strong-minded by the number, size, type and placement of the inclusions.
