I have a few necklaces and bracelets I found in my storage building. I have no idea if they are real, or not. If they are real, I would like to pawn them. So, how can I tell if they are real or not?
Usually, if it is real gold, it will say somewhere on the clasp whether it's 10, 14, 18, or 24K (karat). The only other home method is by using bleach to determine discolouration, but that will also damage the jewellery.
If that's all it says, then it probably is...the only other way is to have a jeweller look it over, but they'll probably charge you more than it's worth.
Use a magnet. If it does not stick to the magnet its real. if it does.... its fake.
Also, if you wear it and it makes you break out or turns your skin green, it's fake.
Lol, I looked on the clasp. It says "Korea", I guess that means it's fake, right?
