I know, but some seem to. I've had two Kelly's with palladium that started to look "pitted" but they cleaned up nicely once I used the jewelers cloth. I know it's not a permanent solution but I look at it as maintenance same as buffing my corners with shoe polish when they get "rubbed". ush:
Naaaaa. I use Meltonian Black shoe polish (this is on my black Box bags and black Togo Kelly) and just dab it on the corners and treat it like I polish my shoes. KWIM? Only I'm a little more gentle. LOL!!!! Works like a charm!
I do have to say though that I bring my bags for a regular spa visit but this works in the interim.
I don't think they are 100% gold or 100% platinum... they are maybe plated with them or have them mixed in.
Some do discolour, I was looking at the vintage pics for both the paladium and gold hardware and I did notice it didn't look bright and sparkly like the new ones. The gold goes to a very muted yellow after a while... this is purely from my observation from pics....
Was just wondering what it was like for you ladies, seeing I haven't got one.
