About the chains. Will the gold color last forever?
Similarly to all other jewelry, color lasting will depend on its maintenance. Sömmer's chains and findings are 18k gold plated, a treatment that will fade over the years by the contact with your skin, clothes, household products, perfume and hairspray. 
If you desire your chain color to last, please take proper care and read our advices at product care.
