Girls and boys, I have a gold togo birkin with palladium hardware (I think it is, it is silver in colour) that is about 6-7 years old. I have noted recently that there are some black marks on the hardware. I tried to rub it off with tissue paper and I could only remove some of the marks but not all. The marks look like they are appearing from within...is this some kind of oxidisation? Anything I can do about this? Thank you so much in advance for your help.:biggrin:

It could be oxidisation as I've seen it on a Kelly handle hardware before. Best to take it back to H for fixing.

This has been discussed quite a bit in other threads.
There were some batches of palladium that this happens with.
I have a couple of these and polish with a jewelers cloth. The black comes off with the jewelers polish, but it does reappear in time.
I am not going to the trouble to have hardware replaced, just keep polishing.
