HOW do I make sure that the gold jewellery I buy is made of real gold?
24 carat gold, which is 100percent gold, is not used much these days. Instead, more often than not, gold has been alloyed with other metals like copper, silver, nickel and zink to give it strength and durability. If you do manage to purchase some 24 carat gold assume it is fake until it has been checked by a jewellery. This also applies to designer jewellery, because any type of designer jewellery is being counterfeited. - Keitumetse Segoai
