Hello! I recently ordered the Small Love Crossbody Bag in black and gold, but I read a lot of posts here from people who had experienced chipping on the hardware. So I ordered the one with the brass hardware instead (it was the last one and it was on sale), but I'm not sure if it's better? Is it real brass or is it also plated? Will it chip or not? I have bad experiences with gunmetal chipping before so I don't wanna spend money on a bag that will get ruined again. Thanks!
