10K gold is the most cost-effective way to get a piece of jewelry which is considered to be real gold.

(Anything below 10K is no longer legally considered real gold in the United States.) It is also the strongest kind of gold from which to fashion jewelry, so particularly heavy pieces may be best suited to 10K gold.

10K gold comes in the variety of colors and lusters that other karat weights of gold can be found in. This means it can be perfectly suited to the color of any gem stones that are set in it. 10K gold can also be worn by itself for the simple classic beauty of gold.

Where Can You Find 10K Gold?

Most jewelers will offer gold jewelry in 10K and 14K. 10K gold is a fine gold for anything that can be set in a precious metal. Diamond, CZ, and all other gem stones can be set in 10K gold earrings, bracelets, necklaces, or any other piece.

Care of 10K gold is similar to care for any other karat weight of gold. It is most important to keep it out of chlorine, which will cause damage over time. With a bit of care, your 10K gold jewelry will remain beautiful for all time; ask a jeweler if there are any small scratches that you would like fixed.
