Can you tell me how many grams are in .60 dwt 14K gold bracelet? Thank you.
First, "dwt" is an abbreviation for the unit called pennyweight. (The "d" comes from the word denarius, which was a coin in ancient Rome.)
A pennyweight is equal to 1/20 of a troy ounce (which is a more common unit of mass). In grams, a pennyweight is 1.55517384 grams.
Since you have 0.6 dwt, that is:
Note that the gold is 14K. To figure out how much gold there is, you need to divide the carats by 24: 14/24 =
So it's about 58.3% gold.
As of right now (June 15, 2012 at 11:26 AM eastern time), gold is worth $1632 per ounce. That means the pure gold content: 0.6*1/20*14/24 = 0.0175 troy ounces, is worth $28.56.
