Good question. Gold goes up and down in price just like stocks or currencies.

What is the difference been 9ct and 18ct gold?

It’s all to do with the fractional purity of the gold. For instance, 9ct gold is 9 parts of 24 (the purest form of gold.) 18ct is 18 parts of 24, so it’s twice as pure as 9ct.

Why is 24ct gold only 99.9% and not 100% pure?

99.9% is the purest form to which gold can be humanly refined – making it so pure that it may as well be 100% anyway!
