The difference between 14K and 10K Gold is the percentage of gold that is contained in a piece of gold jewelry. 10K gold contains 41.7% gold and 58.3% alloy, which means it contains more alloy than gold and therefore a less expensive option. 14K gold contains 58.5% gold and 41.5% alloy and is usually the most popular choice for wedding rings and engagement rings. Pure gold is a soft metal that tends to bend and scratch very easily, so since 10K gold has the most alloy in it, it’s more durable/less soft than 14K gold.

In terms of the color, 10K gold looks slightly more pale than 14K gold but usually you won't be able to see the difference with your bare eyes.
