  • Gold bullion - Typically varies between 99.5% and 99.99%.
  • Gold jewelry - Usually expressed in karat (K or KT) which is a unit of purity for gold alloys. The karat scale is out of 24, so pure gold is 24K gold and all other alloys are a fraction of 24 - for example 18K gold is 18 divided by 24, which means it is 75% gold. Gold jewelry will typically be hallmarked in the fineness scale which is out of 1000, so for instance 18K gold, which is 75% gold, would be hallmarked 750.
  • Live gold prices - There are 13 live currencies for gold price.
  • Non-live gold prices - There are 153 for gold price. The time since this price has been updated will be displayed under the currency selector.

Gold buyers will likely buy gold below its melt value.

Gold Filled Calculator

The gold calculator on this page is only applicable for solid gold jewelry, however it may be used for gold filled jewelry with some modifications to your calculation.

Firstly, look at the piece of jewelry you suspect is gold filled to see if there are any hallmarks to indicate the fraction used - usually 1/20 or 1/10.

Next, note whether it is gold filled "single" or "double" sided - this indicates whether the gold filled is on one side or two sides.

The possible combinations that you can have are:

  • Single sided, 1/20 - This means 1/40 (2.5%) of the item's total weight is the hallmarked gold purity.
  • Single sided, 1/10 - This means 1/20 (5%) of the item's total weight is the hallmarked gold purity.
  • Double sided, 1/20 - This means 1/20 (5%) of the item's total weight is the hallmarked gold purity.
  • Double sided, 1/10 - This means 1/10 (10%) of the item's total weight is the hallmarked gold purity.

For example, a 10 gram 18K solid gold piece of jewelry would be 75% pure gold (or 7.5g of gold). The amount of gold for the equivalent 18K gold filled jewelry would be:

  • Single sided, 1/20 18K - (10g x 750/1000 x 1/2 x 1/20 = 0.1875 g of pure gold) - 2.5% of solid gold equivalent
  • Single sided, 1/10 18K- (10g x 750/1000 x 1/2 x 1/10 = 0.375 g of pure gold) - 5% of solid gold equivalent
  • Double sided, 1/20 18K - (10g x 750/1000 x 1/20 = 0.375 g of pure gold) - 5% of solid gold equivalent
  • Double sided, 1/10 18K - (10g x 750/1000 x 1/10 = 0.75 g of pure gold) - 10% of solid gold equivalent

Hence, to use the gold calculator for determining the value of gold filled jewelry, you simply need to multiple the respective factor above of 2.5% (2.5/100), 5% (5/100), 5% (5/100), or 10% (10/100). To do this, you can either multiple this factor on the weight and enter the result into the weight (for instance, from above, for the first example, instead of 10 g put 0.25 g or 2.5% of 10g) or you may choose to put the percentage into the percentage of melt value (use 10 g but instead of 100% of market value use only 2.5%).

Lastly, please be aware that gold hallmarks are sometimes faked and therefore may not be a reliable indicator of gold content.
