    Hello SUna,
    24K - is pure gold.
    22K - is little bit mix of copper and this is the one used in making jewels.
    24K being pure gold, it is very soft and ornaments would break off easily.

    Thanks,
    Punitha

    Suna,

    As Puni has mentioned

    24K is pure gold-soft and more valuable
    22K is mixed with copper.More resilient for patterns.

    What you wish to buy depends on the purpose.

    When I wish to invest in gold, I buy 24 or 23 carat biscuits or thick chains. Later, when I need jewellery, I convert them into 22 carat jewellery.

    But if I need jewellery directly, I have to buy 22 carat.

    Last week, I bought some Arabian jewellery. They have a lot of stone work and are available only in 21 carat. Since it was good gfold and beautiful, I had no qualms on the gold being 21 carats.

    FYI...
    In US, the gold which they sell is 18carat ones, it looks like pale yellowish, more like silver.
