We generally call the pure gold as 24K gold, but it is the theoretical gold content of pure gold. In fact, pure gold does not exist, with the current state of the art, the people still cannot extract all the gold. Therefore, the national norms, businesses indicate the gold content of pure gold jewelry shall not be used "24K gold" norms of non-standard methods. Since pure gold is said to be 24K, which means that all the gold in theory is free of impurities, then 1K means the gold product contains 1 / 24th of pure gold, about 4.16%. 18K gold represents the gold content of 18/24, which contains 75% pure gold, the other for other materials such as silver or brass.
