What is a karat used to measure ? What is definition for karat ?


 Karat is the unit of measure for the fineness of gold. The higher the karat number, the higher the gold content in the alloy. Each karat is equal to 1/24 of the amount of gold in the alloy. For example 14 karat gold is 14/24, a little more than 1/2 (58.3%) gold content. 24 karat is pure gold, 24/24, or 100% gold. Karat is frequently abbreviated to kt. Abbreviated 14 karat gold would read 14 kt. gold
