Best Answer

lower carat gold is great if you want your gold ring to be stronger...the downside is there is less gold. Because gold is a soft metal, it is usually paired with some alloy to make it stronger. The higher carat gold rings have more gold composition than alloy thus making them weaker but more pricy because there is more gold.
