18ct gold is an alloy (a mix) of gold and other metals, typically copper, silver and / or zinc. For an item of jewellery to be hallmarked 18ct gold, it must contain a minimum of 75% gold.

The colour of 18ct gold depends on the mix of the other metal added. For example, 18ct yellow gold can consist of 75% gold, 13% silver and 12% copper. 18ct white gold will contain more silver or zinc and less copper, whereas rose gold will contain more copper and less silver. As the value of scrap gold is based on the gold content, 18ct yellow gold is worth the same amount as white or rose gold.

    How much is 18 carat white gold going for?

    • 18ct white gold is valued at the same rate as 18ct yellow gold, both varieties contain 75% gold. The difference in colour is simply down to the other metals that the gold has been alloyed with. Yellow gold is alloyed (mixed) with more copper, whilst white gold is alloyed with less copper and more zinc and/or silver.
