Chanel Hardware

  1. Hi guys. I was wondering what the Chanel hardware is made of. Is the silver HW sterling silver? Stainless steel? How about the gold HW? Thanks!
  2. pls correct me if I am wrong , I think the silver HW is coated with palladium, beneath it, I am not sure.
  3. I think the gold hw is ruthenium. Someone correct me if I'm wrong pl..
  4. I have a bag with ruthenium h/w and it's silver.
  5. YEs! I've seen people selling bags on eBay and they claim it is gold. But don't know if it's true. If someone knows... please enlighten us!
  6. This is what it says in my care booklet:

    "The metal parts of your handbag are gilded with an alloy containing 24-carat gold, which is sometimes sensitive to sea air and the acidity of the skin and may eventually wear off. Clasps, chains and other metal parts can be re-gilded.
  7. Awesome! Thanks everyone! Very enlightening.
