10 Karat Solid Gold Jewelry Specifications
In most parts of the world, 10 karat gold is the lowest purity that can still be considered (and legally classified as) "solid" gold. At 41.7% gold content, it can be seen why anything less is not considered solid gold. Even so, antique gold jewelry was made with as little as 8-9 karat gold, so lesser contents than 10k still exist today.

Perhaps the most common, and easily recognized, 10k gold jewelry is Black Hills Gold. Black Hills Gold is a beautiful representation of different gold colors and features yellow gold, pink gold, and green gold alloys depicting grapes, grape leaves and vines. Though not all Black Hills Gold is 10k purity (12k and 14k are sometimes made), the majority of it is 10k solid gold, and a great representation of the verisitility of this valuable metal and what can be done with 10k gold alloys.
