Gold is a soft metal and easy to wear away with constant use and also be affected by the various oils, creams, soaps and perfumes put on the skin.
The 14, 18 and lesser karat gold is usually mixed or alloyed with silver, nickel and other metals to increase their durability and help the piece to last longer. This make it ideal for jewellery which is being worn very frequently or for long periods of time.
