KDM vs Hallmark gold - What's the difference?

When it comes to buying gold for jewellery or investment purposes, people often get confused about the purity and quality of the gold. The two most commonly confused types of gold are KDM gold and hallmark gold. KDM gold refers to the gold that is made by mixing cadmium with gold, where gold is 92% and cadmium 8%. This brings down the gold's purity level to 92%. However, of late, the production of KDM gold has stopped, due to the associated health risks. Hallmark gold is gold certified by the Bureau of Indian Standards. The test is conducted at the assaying centres approved by the BIS. Hallmark gold is available in four varieties:

  2. b) 22 Karat
  3. c) 21 Karat
  4. d) 18 Karat. 

Higher the carat, better the purity. Hence, depending on how you plan to use the gold, you may select the carat.
