Is 22k gold too soft for jewelry?

1 Answer
No, 22k gold is not too soft for jewelry, but it’s considered too soft for everyday wear. You may find some special pieces that are made of 22k gold or that have 22k gold in them, especially antique jewelry, but regular wear will quickly cause 22k gold to become misshapen and scratched. Shop a collection of 22k gold jewelry from some of the world’s top sellers on 1stDibs.
