I am always searching for high karat gold jewelry.
24kt gold is .999 pure and 22kt is .91 pure.
Both have a distinctive orange tint since little or no alloys are in them.
22kt and 24kt chains have always been a favorite of mine.
I search hard to find these as they are hand made and quite rare.
Most come from Asia and Mediterranean regions.
This 18+ inch bead chain weighs 25 grams and is a brand new piece with the traditional Asian stretch clasp.
The beads measure 4mm and this chain has a sturdy,hefty feel to it.
