IS MY PENDANT REAL GOLD

Q

I BOUGHT A 14KT GOLD PENDANT THAT HAD THE “DZ” MARK BEHIND THE 14KT MARK. I UNDERSTAND THAT IT MAY ONLY BE 58% REAL GOLD BUT HOW REAL IS REAL? I SEE THAT IN ALOT OF POSTS AND NOBODY REALLY EXPLAINS IF THAT IS GOOD OR BAD IF IT IS ONLY 58% GOLD.

Hi WENDY,

14k is a better option for jewelry than 10k if you want long term durability. DZ might the manufacturer’s stamp. 14k only specify that the metal is 58.5% pure gold.
