        Q: Difference between 14k gold plated and 14k gold filled chains?
A: The higher the gold contents , the higher the monetary values . Here is the list of gold contents   ·8 carat = 33.33 %  ·10 carat = 41.67 percent  ·12 carat = 50 percent  ·14 carat = 58.33 %  ·18 carat = 75 %  ·22 carat = 91.67 percent  ·23 carat = 95.8three percent  ·24 carat = 99.99 percent   Here is a connection that gives 24/7 updated on the pricing of gold , which is established by the London Market and is monitored by the world Central Banks ( as they 're the ones who trade heavily on gold ) :   http : //www.kitco.com/charts/livegold.htm ...   The world Central Banks trade gold with the London Market twice a day : they hold meetings once at 8:00 p.m. and 2nd time at around 1 a.m. or 2 a.m. ( Mon-Fri , London Time ) . So the pricing of gold modifications from day to day , which also makes the pricing of gold jewellery changing daily .   For jewelry , the pricing will always be somewhat less than the pricing of gold bars those Central Banks trade with , as they always argue that they required to deduct the additional labour of re-melting jewellery to `` reuse . '' However , the pricing variance ought to be solely a few cent . And also bear in mind that the `` gold prices '' are set accordance with the measure of the gold 's `` Troy Ounce , '' which 1 Troy Ounce ( =1 gold bar ) is approximately 31.1035 grams .   Know your gold contents and values . MAKE SURE they weigh your jewellery right IN FRONT of you . Take it to various various locations to 've got them w8 to see if results are roughly the same . And do not let your purchaser ( or salespeople ) say to you otherwise .   Oh , if you wish to maximize the value returneds of the 18K ( not sure of the fourteenK ) , unless you 're totally short on cash flow for bills right now , I would NOT recongratulate you sell at th's time , since the pricing of gold has been dipping . If you are able afford it , hold out for 2 months aways , when the negative numbers on Wall Street hit rock bottom . The more `` rocky '' the economy 's , the more investors tends to flock to gold for security . And all the numbers have not bottomed out yet .
