22 carat gold has more than twice the gold content of 9 carat gold and is far more expensive to buy and much more than double the gold price when you come to sell it. 22 carat gold  can be from the Uk or quite commonly abroad eg Italy  the EU etc It can be yellow gold or white gold (ie with Rhodium plating) or rose gold ie with the addition of extra copper. It is easily identified  by the number 22 (twenty two)  on the hallmarks or the numbers 916. The number 916 stands for 916 parts out of 1000 or 91.6% gold,. The other metals used will be silver,  copper and  zinc . 22 carat gold is a high carat  soft, gold metal.

NB A word of warning. the Uk hallmark is a scientific test and it IS accurate and legal proof of purity, however some 22ct foreign hallmarks can simply be added by the maker and are not always strictly accurate especially in countries where there is no rigid hallmarking law. These pieces may have to be scientifically tested especially where the hallmark appears rough or not properly defined
