Understanding our Price Chart

The chart above shows the price breakdown for each karat of gold with three weight units: gram, pennyweight (DWT), and ounce. Ounces are measured in Troy Ounce which is equivalent to 31.104 grams. This is the unit of measure for all precious metals including what the NY Stock Market Spot Price is measured in for 1 oz of pure (.999 or 24k) Gold. 1 pennyweight is roughly equivalent to 1.5 grams, thats why this price looks higher than the gram price when in actuality it is the same.

1 troy ounce (oz t) 31.104 gram (g)
1 troy ounce (oz t) 20 dwt pennyweights
1 pennyweight (dwt) = 1.555 gram (g)
