GOLD?

HOW DO YOU KNOW YOU ARE BUYING REAL GOLD OR PLATED/FLASH/VERMEIL?

ALWAYS CHECK DESRIPTION FOR A HALLMARK:

FULL UK HALLMARKS/9/14/18/22CT ETC

AMERICAN GOLD-10/14/18/22K

AMERICAN GOLD IS USUALLY STAMPED WITH THE GOLD CONTENT, I.E 10K

WATCH OUT FOR:

925/VERMEIL-SILVER PLATED WITH GOLD

GP-GOLD PLATED

GF-GOLD FILLED

HGE-HEAVY GOLD ELECTROPLATE

WEIGHT CAN ALSO BE A FACTOR-IS IT HOLLOW OR SOLID

THE MAJORITY OF SELLERS LIST THE WEIGHT IN THE DESCRIPTION

BE CAREFUL OF ITEMS BEING SOLD AS GENUINE GOLD WITH ONLY A GOLD CONTENT STAMP (YOU CAN ACTUALLY BUY A 9K/18K GOLD PUNCH TO STAMP GOLD) IF IN DOUBT ASK QUESTIONS

MOST SELLERS USE A GOLD TESTER, THE BEST ON THE MARKET IS THE MIZAR ELECTRONIC GOLD TESTER, THIS WILL TELL YOU IF IT IS NOT GOLD WITHIN 2 SECONDS, IF IT IS GOLD IT WILL TELL YOU EXACTLY IF IT IS 9 THROUGH TO 24 CARAT GOLD.

REMEMBER ALWAYS ASK QUESTIONS,  GENUINE SELLERS WILL RESPOND TO ANY QUERIES-IF IN DOUBT-DON'T BUY.

DIAMONDS

GENUINE/CZ/CRYSTAL/GLASS??

HOW DO YOU KNOW IF YOU ARE BUYING GENUINE DIAMONDS OR MAN MADE DIAMONDS?

CHECK THE SELLERS REPUTATION VIA THEIR FEEDBACK/ABOUT ME PAGE

ASK QUESTIONS, A SELLER WILL BE MORE THAN HAPPY TO RESPOND WITH ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE

READ THE LISTING-ALL INFORMATION USUALLY IS IN THE DESCRIPTION, ALL TOO OFTEN BUYERS BID AT THE LAST MINUTE WITHOUT READING THE DESCRIPTION FULLY THEN FIND OUT THEY HAVE BOUGHT A DIAMOND CZ

INVEST IN A DIAMOND TESTER,-

THE MIZAR DIAMOND & MOISSANITE TESTER WILL TELL YOU IF IT IS FAKE, DIAMOND OR MOISSANITE. MOST DIAMOND TESTERS ON THE MARKET WILL ONLY TELL YOU IF IT IS A DIAMOND OR A FAKE, BELEIVE IT OR NOT A LOT OF THE DIAMOND TESTERS WILL SAY IT IS DIAMOND WHEN IN FACT IT IS MOISSANITE!!! 

I DO HOPE YOU FIND THIS INFORMATION HELPFUL
