Fashion jewellery is a delicate product, which must be handled with special care, in order to avoid damages to the product. Jewellery will eventually wear down, the plating will wear off and the colour will faint, turn dark and start to tarnish. This is unavoidable, since precious metals and platings react with oxygen in the air.
The gold plating is 2-3 layers of gold that gradually wears off, giving the "vintage" appearance that it has faded.
