Where gold has been mixed with other materials (eg. lower carat pieces), Zakat need only be calculated on the portion of the item that is made from gold. It is not just gold jewellery that needs to be accounted for, remember to enter in the weight of gold ornaments/decorative items etc.

Some scholars believe mixed metals are only liable to Zakat if half or more of the metal is gold or silver.
