About Icons

The manufacturing and distribution process for brand products emits large amounts of carbon dioxide (CO2) and consumes large amounts of water. The images below represent the amounts of carbon dioxide and water consumption that can be reduced by reusing a product.

Our Calculation Method

  • The 'Resale Impact' is not a display of an actual environmental reduction but rather a quantification of the environmental impact (CO2 emissions and water consumption) generated by the manufacturing and distribution process that can be theoretically omitted when a customer purchases a product we resell instead of a buying a brand new item of the same type. Since our calculation is predicated on the emissions in the omitted manufacturing and distribution process, actual reductions in environmental impact may differ from our projected estimate.

  • Since our company does not manufacture goods, our calculations cover any resold goods (watches, bags, jewellery (including bullion), apparel, and accessories).
    Our company does not check and verify the actual numerical value of each item's environmental impact (CO2 emission and water consumption) for our Resale Impact. Instead, we base our calculations on data from the LCA database "Gabi*" and estimate the total environmental impact of an item's entire life cycle, from the procurement of its materials to its disposal and/or recycling. Our calculations were overseen by a third-party consulting firm.

  • Discrepancies in LCA results may occur due to differences in calculation assumptions or deficiencies in the manufacturing process.

  • Due to revisions in calculations, the latest calculated values of products may differ from those shown on product tags, etc.

The Appeal of 10 Karat Gold (K10) Popular in Coloured Gold

With the rising market price of gold, the popularity of items with low gold content has skyrocketed. Especially, 10 Karat gold items are becoming increasingly popular for their affordable prices. Similarly, at ALLU, we have also seen an increase in the number of customers selling 10 Karat gold items. Here we will give an overview of 10k gold, explain how it differs from pure gold, and outline the context surrounding its recent popularity.

What is 10 Karat Gold?

10 Karat gold is a gold alloy that is 10 parts gold to 24 parts other which, as a percentage, is approximately 42% pure gold and 58% alloy. Although various terms exist for this alloy, such as 10 Karat, 10K, and K10, they all refer to the same ratio of gold to alloy. In addition to gold, other metals such as copper, silver, and palladium are also used. Depending on the item, the gold used comes in a variety of purities. These are 24k (pure gold), 22k, 18k, 14k, and 10k. Among these, 10 Karat gold has the smallest percentage of pure gold. As the percentage of pure gold is under half, many people do not recognise this alloy as true gold. Meanwhile, the radiance of gold, which has attracted many people since ancient times, does still remain in this alloy. In fact, 10k gold even has a number of advantages that are born out of it having a lower ratio of gold. Originally popular in Europe, 10k gold has gradually become popular as a material for jewellery in Japan as well.

The Differences Between 10 Karat Gold and Pure Gold

As mentioned above, in 10 Karat gold, gold is less than half of the makeup of the alloy, and as such, it does not possess the strong, luxurious shine that is unique to gold. However, at the same time, it is strongly influenced by the colour of the other metals in the alloy. Gold can be easily combined with other metals. There are no fixed standards for alloy proportions in jewellery; each brand has its own alloy ratios they use to create the variety of "coloured gold" used in their products. Moreover, 10 Karat gold is greatly enhanced in hardness due to the influence of the non-gold alloying metals. Especially white gold, which contains palladium, shows a remarkable increase in hardness. While its shape will remain unchanged during everyday use, there is a downside to these harder alloys in that they are hard to resize. The risk of metal allergies is another less prominent factor in pure gold. Pure gold is even considered to be hypoallergenic. However, when other metals are added as alloys, it increases the likelihood of allergic reactions. It is essential to be careful when wearing 10 Karat gold items, as the risk of allergic reactions increases in purities containing a higher percentage of non-gold metals.

The Reasons for the Popularity of 10 Karat Gold

Just a decade ago, most jewellery stores did not even sell 10 Karat gold items. The standard then was for jewellery to be made from higher purity alloys like 18k, 22k, and 24k pure gold. Even today, such high-purity gold remains a highly valued material in jewellery making. In recent years, however, the popularity of 10 Karat gold has increased dramatically due to the surge in gold prices. As a result of the rising market prices, those high-purity gold items mentioned above have become more high-end than ever. In their place, 10 Karat gold has gained popularity as a more affordable way to enjoy the lustre of gold. Nowadays, it is common for gold purities to be categorised, such as "10k gold for daily use" or "18, 22, and 24k gold for important occasions." 10 Karat gold items are also chosen for everyday gifts as they do not compel any feelings of obligation to reciprocate on the receiver due to an exorbitant price. Some prefer the softer colour that is not found in higher purities. Not too overpowering, 10 Karat coloured gold matches well with casual looks. There are many people who own multiple 10k gold items as if they were clothes and wear them according to their mood on any given day.

The High Selling Price Potential of 10 Karat Gold

While affordable, 10 Karat gold has a number of great qualities and is a great purity for those looking for daily, worry-free use of gold jewellery. With its freedom of colour and hardness, many brands carry stylish 10k gold products in a variety of designs. On the other hand, with the market price of gold rising, 10 Karat gold items are also trading at higher prices. In turn, the pre-owned market also sees a high volume of transactions. At ALLU, we welcome and actively make offers for 10 Karat gold items. Experienced in gold and precious metal purchases, we don't stop at a rate calculation based on weight. We also consider the design of the item in question when appraising. If you want to sell your unneeded gold items, take advantage of our services and request an appraisal at ALLU today.

ALLU Frequently Asked Questions

How do you decide the selling price of gold, platinum and other precious metal accessories?

The selling price of precious metals such as gold and platinum is determined according to the 'market price', which is set on a daily basis.
We measure the items you bring to us and derive the appraisal value based on the market price x weight. However, in some cases, if the item possesses an exceptional design as jewellery, we may consider the additional value.

My gold/precious metal does not have any engravings. Can I still get it appraised and sell it?

We can evaluate the item, and if we are able to determine that it is gold, we can purchase it. However, please understand that it may take us some time to check the ratio and other details of the precious metal in question, and there may be cases where we can not proceed with a transaction due to the evaluation.

Can I sell broken items such as broken necklaces, rings with missing stones, or earrings with one pair missing?

We will evaluate the item(s) in question, and if we can determine they are made of precious metals, we can make an offer for them.

How long does it take for an appraisal at the store?

We estimate 10 to 15 minutes for a single item. It depends on the item and the quantity, so please ask our staff when you visit.

Do scratches and stains affect the selling price?

Generally, the condition of the item does not have a major impact.
In the case of ingots, depending on their condition, they may be treated as scrap, which may significantly affect the selling price. For other precious metal products, we will have to actually observe the item in question before making a decision.

Can I sell old coins and foreign gold coins?

If, according to our regulations, we can determine that the item(s) can be treated as precious metals, we can make an offer for them at the best possible price.

Some commemorative and foreign gold coins have a premium value, as they are hard to obtain due to their small circulation. If you bring such gold coins to us, they may be worth more than ordinary precious metals.

When is the best time to sell gold and precious metals?

Compared to past gold market prices, the current prices can be considered quite advantageous, so we believe that the present is a favourable time to consider selling.

However, the market price of gold and precious metals fluctuates daily, so it is very important to notice the timing when the market price is high.

Is the selling price different for ingots and gold jewellery?

Yes, the selling price of ingots and gold accessories is different.
Ingots have their own values and prices: we can make an offer at the ingot price if the brand is recognised in our regulations. On the other hand, even if it is 24-karat gold, gold jewellery is treated as scrap, so that the price will be slightly lower.

Is there a difference in selling price between ingots with and without engraving?

Ingot prices are determinable only for the brands recognised by our regulations. Even if the item in question has the shape of an ingot, if it is not engraved, or if the issuing brand is not one of the recognised brands, there may be cases where it cannot be treated as an ingot.
