Remember: nothing shines like Duragold.
The purity of gold is measured in karats. Pure gold measures 24 karats but is too soft in this state to be used effectively in jewelry. So it is alloyed with other metals--silver, copper, nickel, and zinc--to increase its strength and durability. Common measurements once the alloy is added are 18 karat (75% gold), 14 karat (58%), and 10 karat (47.7%). In the United States, the legal karat limit for the metal to still be considered gold is 10 karats. A higher karat measurement in gold content indicates a greater value of the jewelry piece. Gold jewelry should always be stamped with the karat mark, either 18k, 750 (European marking for 18k), 14k, 585 (European marking for 14k), or 10k. In addition, to assure its quality, the piece should be stamped with the manufacturer's trademark or country of origin.
The color of gold may vary based off of the type of metal alloy included and the percentage of the metal alloy used. Most commonly, gold is available in yellow, white, and rose coloring.
Yellow gold is the most common color and is usually alloyed with silver and copper. Yellow and white gold are similar in strength and malleability, making them perfect for jewelry that is worn daily.
White gold is alloyed with nickel, copper, and zinc--and while it looks similar to platinum, it has vastly different properties.
Rose-colored gold is alloyed with copper and is often used to accent white or yellow gold. The saturation of color varies from piece to piece and according to gold content.
Caring For Your Gold Jewelry
To keep gold shining and scratch-free, avoid contact with chlorine and other harsh chemicals. Do not wear jewelry during rough work and be sure to store it in a fabric-lined jewelry box or pouch. To clean gold jewelry, use warm water, a mild soap, and a soft bristled brush, if needed.

Top Customer Reviews
-They are thin enough that you can spin them all the way around in the hole.
-They are very lightweight and comfortable.
-They're hypoallergenic. (Or at least they claim to be, don't contain nickel, and haven't bothered my ears yet.)
-I wouldn't call these "endless." They have one section which is thinner than the rest which functions as the catch (but as I said above, they're still slim enough to turn). Not a big deal, but kind of annoying as the "catch" is visible and the whole point of "endless" earrings (at least to me) is that they appear seamless. It also seems pointless since the same end could be achieved by tapering one end, or at least making the thin catch part much shorter.. as it stands, there's an unnecessary 6-8mm skinny bit in the middle of your hoops. (And since they are so thin, those skinny bits might not stay in your ears.)
-They are VERY difficult to put on. The catch/closure is just one end (the thinner bit) sitting in the hollow of the other end. This means that there is a bit of overlap and when open, you have to carefully stretch and hold them open (like a slinky) and then try to wrangle these corkscrews into your ears.
-They're 14k gold, and they're very thin. As a previous reviewer noted, that makes them very soft. One of mine was already slightly distorted (not a perfect circle) right out of the box. Coupled with the poorly designed closure mechanism, this means you have to be REALLY careful not to bend them out of shape. I do feel like they would be at a high risk of breaking if you were switching them out frequently.
It is very difficult to find small white gold hoops for some reason, but I have to recommend you keep looking. I was swayed by all the positive reviews and dismissed the negative one, but unfortunately all of his complaints are true. :(

They look exactly like the picture, but are not durable at all. Before I even got them out of the box, one earring bent. I bent it back as best as I could, and wore them anyway. Read morePublished 23 days ago by Christine
Very small and VERY THIN. My daughter easily ripped them out of her ears and bent them. She was 2-3 at the time.Published 1 month ago by Jessica Lectora
