Description
Have you ever had a chain break right after you bought it? Have any of your stones fallen out of their settings? Do you wonder if your 'gold' jewellery is really gold? This guide shows you how to spot poor craftsmanship and imitation gold or platinum and gives you a wealth of information on chains, mountings, multi-coloured gold, and platinum alloys. The book is paced with colour photographs and step-by-step guidelines on: evaluating craftsmanship; making practical choices; detecting fake metals; caring for your jewellery; determining karat value; finding a good buy.
