Jadau jewelry is one of the finest examples of highly skilled craftsmanship that was brought into India by the Mughal Empire.

Karats are used to describe the purity or fineness of gold. A karat is 1/24th of a portion, so 24-karat gold is pure gold. 14-karat gold is 14 parts gold and 10 parts other metals. 18-karat gold is 18/24 parts gold, or 75% gold.
Pure gold is very soft, so it is usually mixed with other metals to form an alloy that is hard, less expensive, and sometimes has a different color.
