your gold

Gold is a type of precious metal characterized by its naturally brilliant shade of yellow and malleable nature. It's the most popular and valuable metal in the jewelry world because of its beauty and versatility, which is why most collectors consider gold as a longterm investment as much as a luxury.

Discovering the Value of Gold



Gold Care



There are many ways to check if a gold piece is authentic, especially if it's an heirloom that's been passed down from generations or a lucky find from a vintage store.


One of the easiest ways to check the authenticity of gold is to look for hallmarks and markings. These include purity numbers under the Karat system (like 8k, 9k, 10k, 14k, 15k, 18k, 20k, 21k, 22k, 23k, and 24k); purity numbers under the Millesimal Fineness system (333, 375, 417, 583 or 585, 625, 750, 833, 875, 916, 958 and 999); and manufacturer labels. If a gold piece does NOT have any of the above markings, it may be fake gold or simply gold plated/gold filled jewelry.


Another way to test your gold jewelry is using your own skin. When wearing your gold piece, check and see if it leaves a greenish or bluish tint. You can also gently rub the gold item between your fingers or hold it for a few minutes to see if it leaves any discoloration or residue. If it does, chances are that you're holding a fake gold piece as real gold does not cause discoloration.


The best way to know if your gold is real or fake is to take it to a trusted jeweler. Jewelers have the right equipment and knowledge to safely check your item for authenticity.
