### Can a rope chain necklace be marked 14kt or 585 and still be fake?

• A.

Yes

• B.

No

A. Yes
Explanation
A rope chain necklace can be marked as 14kt or 585 and still be fake because markings can be easily forged or misrepresented. The markings indicate the purity of gold, with 14kt meaning the necklace is 58.5% gold. However, counterfeiters can create fake markings to deceive buyers into thinking the necklace is made of genuine gold. Therefore, it is possible for a rope chain necklace marked as 14kt or 585 to be fake.

• E.

Purchase it and hope it is real

A. Feel it

Explanation
If you suspect something isn't real gold, there are three actions you can take. First, you can feel it to check for any inconsistencies in texture or weight. Second, you can perform a gold test using acid, which involves applying a small amount of acid to the item to see if it reacts. Finally, you can use a magnet to determine if the item is attracted to it, as real gold is not magnetic.

Nothing, the gold test doesn't work

• B.

Turns green and may start smoking

• C.

Turns a shinier gold color

• D.

Cracks the gold when the acid touches it

B. Turns green and may start smoking
Explanation
When the gold test is done to fake gold, it turns green and may start smoking. This indicates that the substance being tested is not real gold. The reaction occurs because fake gold is typically made of other metals or alloys that react with the testing chemicals, causing a color change and potentially releasing smoke. This is a common method used to identify counterfeit gold.

• A.

### Fake gold chains are always light in weight since they are plated and not made of real gold.

• A.

True

• B.

False

### Where can you start to see the plating wear off on rope chains or any necklace? (check all that apply)

• A.

High points

• B.

Fasteners

• C.

Ends

• D.

You never can see the plating wear off

• E.

Wear points

A. High points
B. Fasteners
C. Ends
E. Wear points
Explanation
The plating on rope chains or any necklace can start to wear off at the high points, fasteners, ends, and wear points. High points are areas where the chain rubs against other surfaces frequently, causing the plating to wear off over time. Fasteners, such as clasps or hooks, can also experience wear and tear, leading to the plating wearing off. The ends of the necklace, where it is often handled or clasped, are also susceptible to plating wear. Finally, wear points, which are areas that come into contact with the skin or clothing, can also show signs of plating wear over time.

### What shows through on a chain or necklace when the plating starts to wear off?

• A.

Green metal

• B.

Silver/gray metal

• C.

Shiny gold

• D.

You can't see any change when plating wears off

B. Silver/gray metal
Explanation
When the plating on a chain or necklace starts to wear off, the silver/gray metal underneath becomes visible. Plating is a thin layer of metal applied to the surface of an object to enhance its appearance or provide protection. As the plating wears off, the underlying metal is exposed, which in this case is silver or gray in color. This is a common occurrence with plated jewelry over time and indicates that the plating needs to be reapplied or the item needs to be replaced.
