SPOT OUT REAL AND FAKE JEWELLERY.
I here share this important article with you, which will let you realize the real and fake of Jewellery.
Fake gold coin could easily pass the “bite” test if it was made out of lead, plated with copper, so it could be then plated in nickel, so it could be then plated in 24K gold. Fake jewelry is nothing new but if you buy plated jewelry you want to do it willingly not by being sold something that is being passed off as being 14K or 18K.
The first thing is that if you aren't buying a piece of solid gold jewelry assume it is fake until you have had a jeweler look at it. Just because it has a 14K or 18K stamp on it means nothing any more, because there is so much fake gold jewelry floating around now.
The same thing applies for any type of designer jewelry, because virtually any type of designer jewelry is now being counterfeited overseas. If you are approached on city street by someone that has an 18K gold chain that is still in the original jewelry box, virtually100% of the time it will be fake.
