Many of the Gold jewelry offered online are not actually real gold jewelry but gold plated jewelry. Real gold jewelry is made of solid gold (meaning that the complete shape is made of gold and not just the surface of it).

Testing real gold jewelry

Many jewelry stores have kits to test the gold. From our experience, these kits are not very accurate. The best to test real gold jewelry is in a lab. We use “The standards institution of Israel” (an official government agency) to test our jewelry.
