Regular, pure gold that has a purity of 99.5% or more is considered to be 24k fineness. It is bright yellow in color.

The pink alloy for jewelry is made by mixing pure 24k gold with copper. The higher the copper content in the mix, the redder the color of the alloy. The proportions of the components change the color:
- 18K red - 75% gold and 25% copper
- 18K rose-hue - 75% gold, 22.25% copper, and 2.75% silver
- 18K pink - 75% gold, 20% copper, and 5% silver
- 12K red - 50% gold and 50% copper
The highest fineness that can be achieved with this particular alloy is 22 karat. As much as 15% of zinc can also be added to the alloys to make their color a more reddish yellow.How do you choose the appropriate ring size?

Record the length in millimeters. Using an appropriate chart, find your millimeter size and the corresponding ring number next to it. That will be the ring number that you will choose.Do the rings have other components?
