Pure 24-karat gold jewelry is offered from websites such as Overstock, Etsy and eBay. However, 24-karat gold is considered too soft to be used in jewelry, so it is commonly alloyed with various metals to increase the strength.
Overstock provides a very small selection of pure 24-karat gold jewelry items and it is not guaranteed that these items are always in stock, as some of them are pre-owned single items. Most of the gold items stated as 24-karat on Overstock are only plated in 24-karat gold.
Etsy is an online marketplace for artists and vintage collectors. A selection of handmade as well as vintage 24-karat gold jewelry is available from artists and collectors all over the world. Pure gold jewelry options on Etsy include rings, necklaces, bracelets, earrings and clasps. The solid-gold pieces are far more expensive than the pieces that are only plated with 24-karat gold. Gold pricing is determined by the karats, weight, design and craftsmanship.
A selection of pure gold jewelry that comes from sellers all over the world is also featured on eBay. Some of the jewelry items feature a small amount of pure gold with other materials. Pendants, bracelets, rings and necklaces are available through eBay.
