With being a worldwide seller of jewellery items on ebay i find alot of the time people email me and say that my prices are very very good and that the items must be plated but here is sometihng that alot of chinese sellers and certain english sellers dont wnat you to know

listing items as gold in the title is legal if they describe in the description that it is not real gold

alot of sellers put in extremely small lettering at the bottom of a page these few letters and dont tell you what they mean well im hear to shed some light on that for you

GP = GOLD PLATED

EGP = ELECTRO GOLD PLATED

9CRG/9CTRG = 9CT ROLLED GOLD (ROLLED IS JUST A MICRON THIN GOLD LAYER)

GOLD TONE = LOOKS A GOLD COLOUR BUT ISNT ACTUALLY GOLD

FILLED =FILLED GOLD SIMILAR TO ROLLED

all of these mean the item is not genuine solid gold and you shouldnt fall for it even if they tell you its gold but put this in the description its so when your skin turns green they can say well it was in the description and then your stuck

 

PLEASE ONLY BUY ITEMS THAT ARE HALLMARKED UNLESS THEY FALL UNDER THE 0.9 GRAMS THEN THEY ARE NOT REQUIRED TO HAVE A HALLMARK ANYTHING OVER THIS THEN THEY ARE
