Which lock should i use?

How long does a gilding hold?

It is difficult to indicate exactly how long a gilding lasts. For example, gilded brass can be discolored by a snap by contact with seawater or chlorine water. The water goes into chemical reaction with the brass under the gold and becomes reddish brown.

The way you use the jewelry, how often and how much you use it determines how long a gilding lasts. But also the body's chemistry can change the surface of the metals. There may also be a difference in how long a gilding keeps depending on whether it is earrings, necklaces and bracelets.

Necklaces and bracelets usually have more skin contact than earrings and therefore more wear on gilded bracelets and necklaces than on gilded earrings.
