Hi Norma,
Sorry you had to find out this way, but a lot of the time, its just "gold" plated, not 14KT throughout

Hi Norma,

Is the rest of the chain 14K or just the clasp? Gold is a fairly soft metal, even 14K is so it isn't at all unusual to see plated clasps on 14 and 18K chains. Better the clasp be strong. It wo9uld really not be a good thing to see no diamond cross and no chain because the clasp broke.On the other hand, if the whole thing is plated, you got ripped off.

CAROLE,the only thing that is 14k is the clasp.I was ripped off.The rest of the chain is metal not gold plated at all.i have a gold tester kit,checked the chain and it turned black,in the tiny spot i did. If it was gold it would have stayed the same. I posted because she might be at the hotels ripping people off,before they go on their cruises.Like she did to me.I should have waited and bought it on the ship.thanks NORMA

Gold prices are reasonable anymore. Buy them at home in a reliable store!!
