Tip: There are two different ways to spell Karat / Carat. And they have different meanings.

Karat is a measure of Ratio, and Carat is a measure of Weight. Karat is used to determine the amount of Pure Gold in a piece. For example, Pure Gold is 24 Karat. 18Karat Gold is 18/24ths (75%) Pure Gold, and the rest is alloy (usually Silver and Copper) used to make the gold better suited for use in jewelry. 14Karat Gold is 14/24ths (58.3%), 10Karat Gold is 10/24ths (41.66%) and on and on.

Carat, on the other hand, is how Gemstones are weighed. One Carat is 1/5 of a Gram. There are 100 Points in a Carat. So, a 1 Carat Diamond, or other Gemstone weighs 1/5 of a Gram. A 10 Point (.10 ct) Diamond weighs 1/10 of a Carat.
