Hey there, I‘m eyeing this costume jewelry piece but am afraid that the gold finish might fade very quickly. Any experience with regards to Dior costume jewelry and a fading gold finish?

I haven't had any trouble with their antique gold jewelry which wears very well. In fact, it doesn't seem to rub off to make a silver colour unlike Gucci gold hardware metal. Seems like the base metal for antique gold is a dark brass so it matches the vintage look.

However, it's different from their polished gold jewelry, which I have no experience with. @hightea_xx has this necklace. He can tell you how it's lasted.

I’ve not had any issue with this necklace! Though I only wear it occasionally to be honest.
How long do you already have it? Have you got any model shots? I don’t want the gold finish to look ‚cheap‘ but find it difficult to find proper pictures on the internet.
