Measurement types: Grams vs. Pennyweight (dwt)

Almost all non-trade sellers use grams when measuring gold jewelry weight but the jewelry trade uses a measurement called pennyweight (dwt). Don’t get confused because there is a big difference between the two:

GRAM 31.10 grams = 1 troy ounce (t.oz)

Pennyweight 20 dwt = 1 troy ounce (t.oz)

Most gold jewelry buyers quote in dwt. There are a few reasons to use dwt but most of all because dwt allows the buyer to quote, what appears to the unknowing seller, as a stronger price over those who quote in grams. That’s right… if the buyer is quoting dwt it sounds as if their quote is 55% stronger then a buyer quoting in grams. Because it takes 20 dwt to make 1 troy ounce while it takes 31.10 grams to make the same troy ounce. Just make sure you know what measurement the seller is quoting: Grams or pennyweight.
